“KEEN ON LEAN” at the BEGO International Sales Symposium 2017
This year’s BISS started with a welcoming speech by the Managing Partner of the BEGO group, Christoph Weiss. “Today we come together as partners and friends in Bremen,” adds Jürgen Schultze, Head of International Sales at BEGO Bremer Goldschlägerei and BEGO Medical. Schultze continues, “With this year’s motto, we would like to show you the potential of lean management for your company.” The following lecture by Frank Göller about “Passion for Change – Why Lean Thinking Drives Organizational Change” linked directly to the words of the previous presenter. Göller, Managing Director of Festool Engineering GmbH, gave some valuable information for successful lean management. Focus topics followed. Tillmann Steinbrecher, CEO at exocad, presented the newest scan and design technologies. Prof. Dr. Constantin von See, Head of the Center for CAD/CAM and Digital Technology in Dentistry at the Danube Private University in Krems, Austria followed with his speech about 3D printing. Christo Foerster, sport scientist and author of several books, concluded the first day with his lecture “Your Best Self – Next Level Inspiration”. At a joint dinner, the participants took a little time-out together with the BEGO employees.
The second day of the BISS was opened by Dr. Alexander Faber, Head of Corporate Operations Excellence at KAEFER Isoliertechnik GmbH, with his lecture “Creating a Lean Culture”. In addition to further focus topics, the announcement of the winners of the highly coveted Wilhelm-Herbst-Award for outstanding marketing and sales achievements for BEGO products was eagerly awaited. The BEGO trade partners Echo Ltd. from Russia (for conventional dental technology), DentMerk BeNeLux B.V. from the Netherlands (for digital dental technology) and ROJAN Darman Company from Iran (for implantology solutions) received the coveted awards. The awards presentation was followed by trade partners presenting market research and success stories from their respective markets.
