August saw our 2017-2018 cohort of students coming together to celebrate their successful achievement of their Lean Sigma education. Over 130 graduates were awarded Yellow, Green and Black Belt certification. Ceremonies were held in Dublin and Cork. It has been a busy year with students from all over the country enhancing their ability to apply continuous improvement. We were delighted to wish them all well.
In recognising the achievement of all students we were also able to specifically reward the achievement in each class of the individuals who showed outstanding performance by awarding them the Graduate Recognition Awards. The beautiful wood turned pens are specially commissioned from Donnchadha O’Connor. Donnchadha is a wood-turner, who creates uniquely beautiful, hand-turned pens in a variety of styles and from a selection of locally sourced sustainably managed native timbers. Timbers used include Bog Oak, Yew, Hawthorn and Blackthorn.
Each award winning graduate was presented with a monogrammed pen.
Finally we were able to recognise two graduates in our Alumni who have been continuously driving forward their knowledge and use of Lean Sigma techniques.
Congratulations to all.
