What Can You Expect At The OPEX Europe Exchange?

Pre-Event Workshop

Collaborate with your peers in this intimate workshop to brainstorm ideas and strategies for aligning your operational excellence strategy with the objectives of the wider business. Demonstrate the value of the OPEX function by contributing to the success of the business as a whole. The workshop will help you explore how you can better align your organisational goals with your operational excellence strategy to deliver value back to the wider business. You will return to the office with new ideas that will help you better support your enterprise goals by creating sustainable change.

Wellness Morning

Start your day right with some morning yoga; followed by a healthy breakfast that will replenish your energy for the busy day ahead. Wellness in the workplace is becoming increasingly important; in 2017 12.5 million working days were lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety. By focusing on employee wellbeing and minimising presenteeism you will increase workplace productivity and create a more cost-effective organisation. Engaging in activities such as yoga and eating a healthy, balanced diet can significantly reduce stress so take some inspiration and enjoy the restorative effects of this morning of relaxation

Around The World Drinks Reception

Creating an operational excellence strategy that is transferable across cultures is crucial to achieving global standardisation and will lead to an improved customer experience. Sip on a French mimosa, a Puerto Rican piña colada or an American Manhattan whilst you reflect on an insightful day one at the OPEX Exchange. Drink, dine and debate with your new peers as we unwind for the evening. There will be plenty of themed games to get involved with as well!

Interactive Activities

Join in with the fun, interactive games and activities that will be taking place over the course of the Exchange. This is a great way to break the ice with your peers and to take a deeper look at some of the topics that have been covered in previous case studies. Find out how knowledgeable you are about cultural differences and evaluate the implications these could have on your global OPEX strategy in our quick fire quiz. Or, immerse yourself in the facilitated discussion around handling resistance to change which will be accompanied by a practical exercise that is sure to get you thinking.
