Paul Speaks at Cambia Health


Recently, Paul Akers spoke about lean principles at Cambia Health and Max Janasik, Director of Business Design, was kind enough to share some of the employee quotes.

“Paul was the best and most inspiring speaker I have heard in the two years I have been at Cambia.”

“I learned a lot from Paul’s examples of eliminating waste using Lean. I took ideas back with me that I can implement.”

“Very engaging. A dynamic speaker with great voice quality, presence, and command of the room. Great visual
presentation tools. Nice balance of humor and insight to drive home the and reinforce his message — see waste, and
eliminate waste through continuous process improvement.”

“Mr. Akers was very gracious. He did not mind, rather encouraged, interruption, kept the content easy to understand and
very interesting and the time seemed to fly by. I plan on reading his book and will incorporate the idea of looking for waste
and eliminating it not only at work but at home.”

“Best two hours ever!”
