Testimonials:

I am pleased to write this recommendation for Katie Labedz and her company Learning to Lean.  I had the pleasure of meeting Katie through the Women in Technology (WIT Wisconsin) organization.  Katie has been part of the Board of Directors, responsible for putting together the breakfast speakers.  Prior to her role on the Board, we brought Katie in to do on presentation titled Applying Lean/Six Sigma Concepts in IT.  We had a great turnout and high satisfaction scores for this presentation.  Her presentation style is very interactive, and she keeps the audience engaged as she works through meeting the topic objectives.  I have also recommended Katie as a speaker to a CIO forum that I belong to.

 

Vicki Leinbach

CIO, Ariens Company

I would heartily recommend considering Katie Labedz should your company need either a motivational speaker, meeting facilitator or a multitude of training needs. Katie provides a perfect solution for a wide variety of modern business requirements. Katie’s unique value proposition stems, not just from her experience in several different industries and functions, but also from a calm yet assertive demeanor, which is laser focused on achieving desired results and objectives.

Katie has built a great reputation in the areas of Lean 6-Sigma, Project Management and Talent Development, and has worked in Operations, IT and Supply Chain for several leading industry brands. She has a canny knack of honing in on the topics that really make a difference to the success of any project or task, and diverts swiftly away from dead end conversations.

I am extremely proud to call Katie not only a respected colleague and industry expert, but also a friend who I would confidently entrust with the most important of collaborations.
