Rob Wilson Selected to Present at 2015 GBTA Convention

Overland Park, Kansas

Rob Wilson, President and Founder of Meeting Evolution has been selected to present three (3) educational sessions at the upcoming 2015 Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention in Orlando, Florida.

Rob’s sessions will focus on Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) and the content is based on more than 15 years of experience developing Strategic Meetings Management technology solutions for the industry.  In addition to a focus on maximizing efficiencies with eRFPs and using the Business Intelligence (BI) in a strategic manner to manage meeting spend, Rob is launching a new seminar series based on Six Sigma process management.

“I am excited for the opportunity to provide a workshop focusing on Six Sigma LEAN methodology at the GBTA Annual Meeting.” stated Rob, “LEAN is a proven methodology made popular at Toyota. The focus of LEAN is to understand who your customer is, providing an environment that is continuously improving the workplace to be efficient, identify non value added steps that impact the service provided to a customer and respect among all employees. A LEAN organization never stops evaluating processes. LEAN is a workplace lifestyle.”

In addition to presenting the Six Sigma process at GBTA, Meeting Evolution provides a series of Six Sigma seminars specifically applying the approach to the many aspects of Strategic Meetings Management.  For more information please see the Education page on the Meeting Evolution website.
