The 2018 AIAG Quality Summit is nearly here!

Following a brief “welcome” speech from AIAG’s director of quality products and services, Scott Gray, this year’s event will kick off with an industry keynote presentation by Christoph Hagedorn, senior vice president, head of Corporate Quality and Environment at Continental Corporation.

Hagedorn graduated from Technische Universität Darmstadt, began his career at ITT Automotive, and spent the last 19 years of his career with Continental Corporation, successfully completing international assignments in France, Germany, Japan, and the United States. During his presentation, Hagedorn will provide insights on the keys to reengineering an enterprise-wide quality system to support the changing product technologies and to energize a quality culture across a global corporation.

Closing out the event, Vince Poscente – best-selling author, business consultant, and Olympian – will be joining us for his presentation, “Full Speed Ahead.” Poscente’s achievements include becoming an award-winning salesperson for Century 21; a VP of Marketing for the world's largest real estate investment service, Int'l Investment Properties; a USA & Canadian Speaker Hall of Fame inductee; and a New York Times best-selling author of four business/pop psychology books, including “The Age of Speed” and his new novel “Heroes Climb.” Poscente’s presentation will focus on harnessing the power of speed as the ultimate solution for those seeking less stress, less busyness, and more balance.

In addition to these two phenomenal keynote speakers, the event will also feature an IATF OEM session where they will discuss their customer specific plans for suppliers who do not meet the IATF 16949 certification deadline.
