Well done and congratulations to all 13 of our delegates who have successfully completed 12 months on the Leadership, Education, Application & Development (LEAD) Programme – part of CEMEX UK’s commitment to provide career development opportunities.
When the delegates began the programme in April 2015 they were unsure of what lay ahead, but by April this year the delegates emerged from months of learning, business familiarisation and project research, proposals and implementation as confident, enthusiastic individuals with a much broader business knowledge base and personal learning and development.
This year saw colleagues from Cement Operations, Business Performance, Building Products, Cement Commercial and Logistics come together for the full year programme. The programme ended with the delegates presenting their business improvement projects to Jesus Gonzalez, Matt Wild, Phil Baynes-Clarke and their Senior Teams and then enjoying an opportunity to celebrate their success.
The course does not end there though as the delegates continue on to further develop their learning back in the business by implementing their projects across their own and possibly other business areas in the spirit of collaboration.
We express our gratitude not only to the Commercial Cement, Building Products, Rail, Ash and Logistics businesses for supporting this programme, but also to the whole of CEMEX UK for providing excellent learning opportunities, sharing best practice and enabling the delegates to familiarise themselves across the whole spectrum of business areas. Matt Wild commented: “These opportunities are invaluable to the continued development of our employees and the collaboration across businesses”.
Please join us in congratulating those successful delegates as follows:
Scott Price, Matt Sumner, Willa Gillespie, Paul Kania, Ed Castleton, Stuart Woods, Luke Devine, James Watson, Gary Burgess, Mark Brown, Paul Wilson, Kieran Brennan and Stuart Robinson.
The programme continues to move from strength to strength and with the feedback from our delegates we want to continue to moving the programme content forward making it current and relevant from year to year. With a short break, LEAD 2016 will launch later in the year.
