“My name is Linda Brennan, I work as The Global Production and Fulfilment Director in Symantec’s Dublin office. I was recently successful in completing a Lean Sigma Black Belt certification with CAMMS, Cork Institute of Technology. Our class dynamic was a tremendous benefit to our learning as we had pupils from the service industry, security and technology to name a few. The diversity of experience, cultures, gender and age gave the learning experience a real world dynamic. This was one of the many benefits of this certification.
