Quest for Success Conference - 2017

TPE's Quest for Success Conference is the Midwest's premier conference for performance and operational excellence.
Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award recipients, TPE Award recipients, and performance excellence professionals will deliver cutting-edge presentations with improvement strategies you can immediately apply to your organization.

"I think the Conference is the best networking opportunity of the year to meet and collaborate with other professionals in different stages of their Baldrige journey."

"I enjoyed the ability to network, learn from others and meet new people that are passionate about quality."

"My favorite part of the Conference was the willingness of this community to share best practices and approaches. I found support from many others and it was good to be surrounded by people in the same pursuit of excellence."
