This year we return to the edge of our Fall outage season after a great 2014 Superintendent Conference in Orlando, Florida. We had over 400 in attendance, including APM Superintendents, GETSCO Superintendents, GSSI Safety Specialists and APM Corporate management and personnel. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the event to gear up for the upcoming outage seasons. The organization of this year’s conference required collaboration of our APM, GETSCO and GSSI teams as we hosted numerous sessions and classes for professional, technical and soft skills development. We heard from guest speakers with PIT (Performance Improvement Training), GE PGS (Power Generation Services), OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) and National Training Seminars. The focus for this year was on leveraging best practices from our teams as well as the expertise of the guest speakers to promote speed and productivity on our jobs. It was inspiring to hear from the various perspectives and thought leaders in our field and other industries. We appreciate all of the employees, partners and vendors that put time and effort into making this year’s event resonate success! There’s a survey that recently came out soliciting attendee feedback, and we hope that you will participate to help us improve and maintain value for future events.
Congratulations again to all of those who were recognized for both special awards and years of service awards. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to the company. We extend a special congratulations to our Presidential Award recipients, Steve Conrad from GSSI and Ronald Campbell from APM.
As you forge ahead, keep this thought in mind: Speed is not the goal. It is the result.
