  • Spinal Life Australia 109 Logan Road Woolloongabba, QLD, 4102 Australia (map)

You are invited to join members of the Executive Connection for our next speaker session, led by Chris Butterworth on Creating a Culture of Continuous Improvement.

TEC members are executives and business owners from a diverse range of industries who meet monthly to support each other and address the challenges of leading in these increasingly uncertain times.

The speaker session is the first part of a monthly all-day meeting and is attended by between 14 and 16 people. During the afternoon, the TEC members continue with their Executive Session. Our speakers are subject experts focused on stimulating active discussion with the group.



Chris has been with SA Partners for nearly fifteen years and is Managing Director of SA Partners in Australia. He has had many years experience of operating at senior management positions in several multinational organisations. 

Chris was the overall program director for the work with Cogent Power described in the Shingo prize winning book “Staying Lean”. He has spoken on Lean Thinking at many International Conferences and has published papers in various journals and books. He has facilitated Lean Thinking workshops for executive management programs at a wide range of international business schools.

Chris coaches executive teams and transfers knowledge across all levels of an organisation and more recently in Australia he has led the SA Partners work with the RAAF, Commonwealth Bank and Red Cross Blood.

Chris is a certified Shingo Institute facilitator and winner of Best New Speaker of the Year Award 2014 (TEC- The Executive Connection) for his talk on Lean Thinking.



Chris has recently co-authored a highly successful book about how simple habits can embed a culture of continuous improvement. In this new workshop series for TEC members he explains how to embed these simple habits into everyday business. 

This workshop will explain how the habits link together and will demonstrate:

  • how to create visual management boards

  • how to run huddles around these boards to get team engagement

  • the key elements of Gemba walks for sustainability
