Learn From History to Plan for the Future

Global TapRooT® Summit History

This brief history of the Global TapRooT® Summit may give you the motivation you need to plan for a successful future.

First, watch this OLD video from 2007. It describes how the Summit will help you learn industry best practices to plan your company’s improvement initiative. It was accurate in 2007 and applies to the Summit today (only the 2021 Global TapRooT® Summit is better yet).

Pictures and Videos from the Previous 23 Global TapRooT® Summits

What does it look like to learn best practices while having fun? Here are some photos from previous Global TapRooT® Summits…

At every Global TapRooT® Summit, we present awards to people who have found ways to improve performance. The picture above is Mark Paradies presenting a success story award to Elaine Shaw. Hearing about other people’s success is a great way to get ideas to implement at your company.

Networking at the 2010 Global TapRooT® Summit

We make time at the Global TapRooT® ® Summit for participants to talk to their peers, Keynote Speakers, and Breakout Session Presenters. Often, some of the best lessons are learned in these informal discussions.

Then there are the great Keynote Speakers for the 2021 Global TapRooT® Summit.
