Hi <<First Name>>, 

Do you love coffee (or tea)? Do you love networking, sharing lean best practices and solving lean problems together? If yes, we are rolling out a new informal program called Lean Coffee Chats! We will have 60-90 minute sessions in different locations around Michigan.

What are the benefits?
  • Leverage our membership knowledge base
  • Focus on implementation of lean tools
  • Opportunity to network
  • Share best practices
  • Stay connected with other MLC members
  • ALL FOR FREE for members (+ you can bring a non-member guest for FREE too!)
What a typical agenda will look like:
  • Meet and greet
  • Lean implementation topic and brainstorm - bring a topic suggestion or come ready to ask for help with a lean issue you are encountering 
  • Learn about MLC and upcoming events
  • Networking
We already have lots of lean coffee chats lined up around Michigan (and more to come!)... register now!

Thank you! If you have any questions, please reply to this email.
