News from the AME Conference – Melbourne

In early March I took my first ever trip to the AME Conference in Melbourne, and had a chance to enjoy not running the show, but just to rub shoulders with some great people and leaders in all things excellent.

This was also a chance to meet up with some of the SA Partners team and to support Louis Sylvester from Auckland Council, as he was one of the key note speakers, telling the story of their lean journey over the past few years.

Congratulations Louis on an engaging presentation and well done for all the hard work. It is always good to hear how focusing on the right behaviors and strong leadership can achieve remarkable results in transforming the culture of an organisation.

Stories from Airbus, CBA, Kmart and the Goodyear tire company brought the event to life.

I particularly enjoyed Billy Taylor from Goodyear who got the audience involved in his presentation, and introduced us to the “2 foot rule”. Anyone that gets within 2 feet of Billy gets a handshake or even a high 5!

I managed to find this you tube link which gives you an insight in to Billy’s infectious passion or people and culture.

Finally, it was also great to meet and catch up and network with others on the excellence journey and nice to see a few Kiwi’s attending too.

Well done AME for putting together this event!
