Welcome from the Lean Frontiers Team!

A heartfelt thank you to each presenter who is contributing time and energy to share their stories with us at this year’s Summit. And thanks to the nearly 200 of you who have made the choice to learn and grow by attending the summit!  Your contribution is significant as you are part of what makes this a great learning and networking environment.

Keep it going! Keep on learning, networking, and applying your knowledge so that YOU have a story to share at next year’s Summit. We will be sending out a formal “call for presenters” in the coming weeks and strongly encourage each of you to consider what story you might share.

See you in a little over a week at the 10th Annual TWI Summit and the 6th Annual Lean HR Summit in San Antonio, TX! Until then, click the big image above for a sampling of photos from last year’s Summit. We’ll post more as the days go on.

TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT

Depending on your needs, you might consider taking a taxi to and from the airport. You can expect to pay around $25 each way.  An interesting and useful way to price shop is http://www.shuttlefare.com/.

If you rent a car, overnight valet at the venue (with in and out privileges) is $37 and overnight self parking is $27.

FINDING THE SUMMIT

The Summit is being held at the San Antonio Hyatt Riverwalk.  Once you arrive and get situated in your room come explore the meeting space.  We are located on the 2nd floor.  There are two ways to get to our meeting space…

  • You can go up the escalators near the hotel check-in desks
  • You can take the elevators up to the 2nd floor

WHAT TO WEAR

Summit participants are encouraged to dress business casual. Consider bringing a light jacket or sweater as conference room temperatures are notoriously difficult to control. Bring some comfortable walking shoes so you can get out and enjoy the Riverwalk at night!

BREAKOUT SESSION ATTENDANCE

You were not asked to commit to breakout sessions or tracks when you registered. This is so you can jump in and out of sessions as you see fit. Your needs will change as you attend sessions, so this allows you the freedom to change your plans on the fly.

WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP PARTICIPATION:
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH

Breakfast and lunch are provided for workshop participants on Wednesday. Breakfast will be served from 7AM-8AM. Come down early and spend some time getting to know fellow workshop participants. If you arrive for the Summit on Wednesday but are not participating in a workshop, you are encouraged to take advantage of the many dining options that San Antonio/Riverwalk has to offer.

ENJOYING THE AREA

On my visit to San Antonio 2 weeks ago I was reminded of why we chose this location for this year’s Summits. The Riverwalk is a beautifully landscaped, serene environment, with many outstanding dining options as well as things to do for those staying here.  During my stay I took a boat tour up and down the Riverwalk area which was very enjoyable!  I encourage you to do it if you have a spare 45 minutes one evening.  www.riosanantonio.com

 

San Antonio Weather

Highs in the mid 80’s with overnight lows in the mid 60’s…!  Basically, amazing!
