Workshop reviews provide two main things: knowledge and opportunity. CTPM uses the review method as a way to meet the needs of our customers and improve the services we offer. It can also help new customers decide what services best suit their needs.

"I found the training to be very effective. Great!" - Production Scheduler, Sanitarium Health Foods NSW

"Obviously very experienced presenters who did a good job fitting a lot of detail into a relatively short time (Good use of humerous examples). This is an essential concept for companies to involve all their people in. From management through to workers to enable them to survive in an ever increasing competitive world." - Plant Manager, Boral Bricks (Bringelly) NSW

"Very Good - Time taken to stay on a subject if needed, not glossed over. Quick changeover exercise was excellent. A new level of understanding - This level of involvement at the right time of our journey is excellent." - Inventory Controller, Sanitarium (Berkeley Vale) NSW

"Excellent training - great ideas and examples." - Process Engineer, Coopers Brewery SA

"If you don't plan to implement TPM into your workforce, you plan to fail." -Maintenance Planner / TPM Co-ordinator, Holden Engine Operations VIC

"This 3-day course has re-affirmed my drive and desire to see this process through within my organisation." - Improvement Manager, OPAC NZ

"Being able to engage your workforce no matter what their level of skill through using the TPM process of meetings and tools to help them communicate effectively and be fully involved." - Packaging Operator, Sugar Australia Yarraville VIC

"Very good forum to share knowledge and learn new things. Speakers presentation most useful." - TPM Supervisor, PT Kitadin INDO

"Having Lean Capability does not just happen, it needs commitment and knowledge and the more effort that is put in the greater the returns. The Annual Forum once again has provided excellent up to date, relevant and interesting information on key principles of Lean. Most problems in the workplace are not unique - networking with other organisations who attend the Forum opens the door to many unpaid Lean experts who may have already come up against it and have a solution." - Warehouse Manager, Sanitarium Health Food Company (Berkeley Vale) NSW

"It's great to have the opportunity to network with people with the same goal for operational excellence. Keeping learning and knowledge to yourself may secure your position short term but almost guarantees your company will fail in the long term. The Annual Forum is a terrific platform for Learning - Teaching - Communicating and the depth of the Forum each year confirms it. Well done!" - Maintenance Manager, Siemens Water Technologies NSW
