MEET YOUR HOST

Jared Thatcher

Hi, I’m Jared Thatcher.

I've been a small business owner, construction worker, management consultant, manufacturing plant manger, and a continuous improvement enthusiast.  I was part of a project management team that saved a company over $1.1 billion dollars over three years, and I've generated multiple million dollar cost savings ideas for over a dozen companies throughout my career.

As I was sheltering in place I wished there was something I could do to help my friends and family save their jobs and their businesses.  I realized that there was something I could do.  The same principles I have been using to help the businesses I've consulted for, I could share with small businesses from around the world. I felt inspired to put on this virtual summit and to bring together some of the top industry leaders from around the world to reveal their strategies to small business owners, entrepreneurs, managers, and employees that want to discover how they can bounce back from this pandemic.

If you are ready to put in the work, we are here to help you and your business through the Virtual Lean Summit®

How’d You Like To Access the
60+ World-Class Experts helping you in the 
Virtual Lean Summit Masterclasses?



These sessions will show you the strategies that the top people in business use and recommend. For a limited time, you can get FREE access to this exclusive content right here.
