Airport, vehicle test track tours added as summit’s ‘early bird’ window comes to an end

With the Center for Operational Excellence’s Leading Through Excellence summit less than two months away, we’re thrilled to have added the final two site tours we’ll be offering on Wednesday, April 9 – and just in time, as our 10% early bird discount ends today!

In addition to audiovisual production company Mills James, lawn and garden giant Scotts Miracle-Gro Co., and steel processor Worthington Industries, we’ll be taking groups to:

  • Port Columbus International Airport, for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the control tower and baggage handling areas, among others; and
  • Columbus-area automotive proving ground Transportation Research Center, which runs programs to test vehicles for safety, fuel economy, crash performance, and other factors.

trcThe airport tour is back for its second consecutive year after proving so popular during Leading Through Excellence 2013 that it sold out (you can get a glimpse at the experience by checking out our recap video). That’s expected to happen again this year as only a dozen spots are available.

The TRC tour is a new addition this year, with 20 slots available. The nonprofit center, which sits next to Honda of America in western central Ohio, has agreed to take attendees on an exclusive driving tour of the proving grounds, which are used by vehicle OEMs and public-sector entities for testing.

And Wednesday, April 9, is only the beginning of our three-day summit, which includes new research from top Fisher College of Business faculty, insights from industry experts (including those from Harvard University’s medical center, GE Aviation, and Goodyear), and a featured keynote address from Chip Heath, the bestselling author of Decisive, Made to Stick, and Switch.

Even for non-members of our center, you can get the full three-day summit experience for less than $700 while the early bird window lasts. So what are you waiting for?
