Discuss operational leadership, risk-taking, communication challenges, problem-solving strategies and more in AMBA's newest series, "Meet the Mentor" -  a program track for AMBA Emerging Leaders that addresses challenges facing the next generation of leadership in mold manufacturing. 

Each month, AMBA’s 40-and-under emerging leaders will hear from seasoned industry professionals, who will provide insight into a core challenge previously identified by today’s emerging leaders.

After hearing each mentor’s insights, past experiences and guidance, attendees will be challenged to:

  • Observe the challenge in their own workplace
  • Contemplate best practices and solutions applicable to their own facility
  • Rejoin their peers for a follow-up peer-to-peer discussion on their observations, best practices and future improvement goals specific to their organization

Themes will vary month-to-month. Sessions will begin mid-February and will run through May. 

February Session: Leadership through Ownership

Mentor Session: Thursday, Feb. 11, 2021 | 11AM EST
Facilitated Peer Networking Session: Thursday, Feb. 25. 2021 | 11AM EST


During this presentation, AMBA's up-and-coming emerging leaders will hear from two dynamic personalities in manufacturing - Ray Coombs, president at Westminster Tool and Troy Nix, executive director at the American Mold Builders Association.

Together, these two industry leaders share over 50+ years of leadership experience and intimate knowledge of the successes and failures that go hand-in-hand with the management of diverse teams, economic uncertainty and changing technology. Attendees will hear the powerful stories of both Coombs and Nix and will walk away with an understanding of why successful leaders must own not only the successes of their teams, but their failures as well.

Member Cost: $29. This is a members-only event.
