“Our business model is built upon quick turnarounds and efficient manufacturing processes that make our customers more competitive. Glen was instrumental in teaching us the self sustaining techniques necessary to make this happen.

His training sessions and Kaizon Events were insightful, challenging, and most importantly – effective! He was able to successfully work with all levels of employees, including the 30 year veterans that thought they knew everything! Glen’s skills and techniques would be useful for any organization within any industry.”
