Office Manager Louise and Customer Service Administrator Kerri travelled all the way across the Irish sea from Manchester to Dublin to represent Hurst Green Plastics and The TwinBin at the Lean Workshop Group Event – in a flight which took approximately 40 minutes!
Arriving into Dublin on Monday 25th April at around Lunchtime the girls headed straight across to the Bosch Home Appliances Venue in Ballymount to assist in preparing the venue, ready for day one on Tuesday 26th April.
The event which ran from Tuesday 26th April to Thursday 28th April received up to 70 visitors, from over 30 different companies in many different industries such as Engineering, Food and Drink, Medical & Aerospace. The Workshop was an excellent opportunity for the attendees to understand and grow their knowledge of the Lean Processes on both a theoretical and practical level, whilst creating an opportunity to meet and discuss with local companies about the challenges and successes that they have each faced.
The day also allowed the member companies to showcase to the attendees how all the products offered work in conjunction with one another to create the fully working lean cell which was on display and demonstrated by the Group. Office Manager Louise presented the TwinBin, BinFlag and Kitting Solutions offered by Hurst Green Plastics on all three days with the assistance from Kerri in demonstrating the products.
Now, a trip to Dublin would not be complete without a visit to the local attractions offered in the area. Louise and Kerri opted to visit the Guinness Storehouse, conveniently located close to their hotel, to gain an insight into the fascinating history of the popular beverage. After learning all about the history of Guinness the girls enrolled into the Guinness Academy to learn how to pour a perfect pint of Guinness – and successfully leaving with certificates detailing their accomplishment – and choosing to enjoy their beverage in the Gravity Bar which provided a beautiful 360° view across the city’s skyline.
The final part of the Trip was a visit to Dublin’s Famous Temple Bar area for some food and drinks to end a fantastic few days in a beautiful city – minus the very busy traffic! The city was buzzing – especially for a Wednesday evening and the girls enjoyed food from a beautiful Italian/Irish fusion restaurant before heading back to the hotel for the final day.
The girls, now back in the office, are excited to Invite you to the next event located in Oxford on 7th & 8th June. For further information or to book your place please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
