‘Fantastic sessions in Six Sigma delivered by Bernie at Norbrook Laboratories! Bernie was excellent at giving relevant examples and explaining situations (and even stats/charting) in a way I could easily understand and remember. Highly recommended ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐’

Natalie Craythorn, QMS and OPS Compliance Manager, Norbrook Laboratories Ltd

“Cordatus (now trading as Lean Ireland) have also carried out lean six sigma sponsor training with the site management team which is proving invaluable in ensuring project success.  As the Operational Excellence lead for the site, and a candidate on the Cordatus (now trading as Lean Ireland) black belt course, I’ve had the opportunity to experience their service offerings from a number of perspectives. They are professional and innovative in the facilitation of lean six sigma courses, and responsive to Allergan’s particular needs. The response from attendees at their courses is very favourable, which results in increasing interest from our employees to “get involved” in the programme. As facilitators they are results focused, and the plant is enjoying excellent results from the projects being completed.”

Jason Flanagan, Site Operational Excellence Lead & Manufacturing Manager, Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Clonshaugh, Dublin

‘I found the course to be delivered in a very practical manner, without the use of a single PowerPoint slide! Interactive learning was a key feature. I found the Workshop to be highly beneficial for those employees attempting to embrace the Lean ethos for the first time.’

Conor Carroll, Masters of Applied Science (Enterprise Systems) Student at NUI Galway
