“Mark is an excellent speaker and was very enlightening and informative on not only the upside of Lean in Healthcare, but also in pointing out the difficulties and hurdles that are characteristic of Healthcare.”
– Lester Sutherland (see other attendee comments)

“Great presenter. Appreciate good easy pace and good examples… samples that we can use everyday, things that I can bring back to work… thoughtful basic practices that make sense! Absolutely a fantastic presentation with a practical approach… I learned the healthcare profession is ripe for Lean initiatives.”
– Comments from the 2012 ASQ Lean and Six Sigma Conference

“The leadership team very much enjoyed the content and delivery of your presentation, which was evident by the feedback survey scores and the requests for the presentation material.  Both the keynote presentation and discussions that you had throughout the day with various members of the leadership team were very helpful for injecting additional enthusiasm into our lean deployment  and providing invaluable insight into lean in healthcare that will surely prove to be beneficial to our lean learning and journey.”
– Comment from speaking at a health system’s management offsite meeting

“Your remarks helped the conference get off to a great start, and your message about the need for continuous improvement in healthcare clearly resonated with our audience. Here is what some of the attendees had to say about your presentation:  “LOVED it! Great speaker, very interesting.“ … The information was very applicable and I got some good takeaways.” … “We’re currently going through kaizen at my organization. Mr. Graban’s comments were extremely helpful.”
– From a 2012 speaking engagement

“The feedback from the session was all excellent and several people commented that they wished it had been longer.”
– From a 2014 session taught for a clinical effectiveness and patient safety program

“Great presentation. Excellent session! Most useful presentation I went to this weekend!”
– From the 2014 Society for Health Systems conference

“I’ve heard Mark Graban speak twice – and it was great. I actually look forward to seeing him in Orlando next February. He’s a great speaker, very personable and very likable!! (So your audience will genuinely like him, which in health care is tough because its political and silo’d.)”
Richard Rodgers

“Everything went very well with Mark Graban. Whether you were implementing kaizen practices currently or were thinking about it, his message offered everyone nuggets of information to help improve processes to save time and money.”
– From a 2015 speaking engagement for a home health association group
