“Every day is a new challenge and with it a chance to personally develop. I find the work rewarding in many ways but above all I get a buzz from making a positive impact on a business within days of starting a workshop. Beyond the financial improvement, working closely with the workshop members and seeing their development is personally rewarding.”

"I am amazed at what has been achieved in 5 weeks. I'm very impressed that such an approach can make fundamental changes in a mature environment with a lot of closed thinking. I am now totally convinced..., and will support the rollout across all the businesses under my control"

Supply Chain Director, Asia Pacific, major Multinational Food & Beverage Company

Before LI came we were facing the looming recession as a premium supplier with huge pressures on our margins from the trade. By improving our efficiencies we have been able to maintain our bottom line over the current ‘crisis’. I would recommend LI Europe to any Food or Pharma business that wants to achieve rapid and sustainable productivity improvement.
