The Well-Known Bottling Facility, Nestle Waters, Hosted the Lehigh Valley Executive Forum
This morning's meeting at Nestle Waters gave our group an insider's look at their manufacturing process. Every time we have off-site meetings I learn a ton. I was intrigued by their processes that they have in place, metrics for quality and feedback loop for continuous improvement. These are great take-aways for all our businesses, and it was something that I walked away thinking about for my own business.
Executive Forum of the Lehigh Valley Unveils New Logo
Like many organizations, the Executive Forum of the Lehigh Valley has been steadily growing with a focus on giving members access to resources and education. As the years passed the leadership of the business resource group realized that they had grown out of their logo.
The original logo was created in the height of the cold war, when Reagan was president and the Phillies actually had a winning record. Suffice it to say, it was time for some freshening up.
To the left is the old Executive Forum logo which uses 50 shades of blue. To the right is the new EF logo designed by Andy Hall. His designed was well received by the members and it was said that "is mighty perdy" and "y'all did a swell job".
