How Good Are the Keynote Speakers at the Global TapRooT® Summit?


That’s what people tell me after the Summit.

People really get motivated. Learn important new knowledge. Go back to work with valuable information.

Here’s one participant from the 2010 Summit talking about one of the Keynote Speakers that she found particularly valuable…

The 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit has an outstanding list of Keynote Speakers.


It starts with the telling of the rescue of the Chilean miners as told by the person who was second in command of the rescue – Rene Aguilar.

It also includes Beverly Chiodo (the highest rated speaker we’ve ever had, returning this year to motivate and educate us again), Christine Cashen (who will make you laugh about our dysfunctional organizations), and several high level managers (including Gary Migliaccio of Pfizer) talking about what management really wants from incident investigations and root cause analysis.


It will conclude with Astronaut Ken Mattingly of Apollo 13 fame (and also a Shuttle Mission Commander) discussing his space program experiences.

But the keynote speakers are just the start. As Shelly said in the vidio, she also liked the Breakout Sessions in the Best Practice Tracks. She said she had learned to “track better” … that is customize the sessions she picked on the agenda … to make the Summit focus on the topics that she most wanted to learn about.

Look at the eight Summit tracks here:
