The Seminar was attended by renowned specialists in the market, such as Engineer Fernando Fragata, Harold Rivas from Zebron do Brasil and Marcos Mattos from Devilbiss. Fragata, a technical consultant in Protective Coatings and one of Brazil’s leading names on the subject, gave a very positive feedback after the event, congratulating Actemium’s initiative and declaring the “lectures very rich on technical content, which certainly contributed to improving the technical capabilities of the company’s employees”. There were also speakers from Actemium at the event, such as Safety Supervisor Lorival Fernandes, Painting Coordinator Lívia Savino and Quality Coordinator Camila Cursino, who sparked productive discussions about each internal macro-process that makes up the company’s painting activity.
Organized by Contract Manager Carla Duplan and Operational Manager Fábio Santos, the event also included group dynamics and a quiz , and was very well received by attendees and speakers. Rivas from Zebron do Brasil stressed how difficult it is to find specific courses in the area of industrial painting and considers the Seminar to be a very important initiative, as it is “one of the most viable forms of knowledge development”. Luis Silva, Actemium’s Business Manager, was also very pleased with the contents discussed, highlighting the participants’ engagement in the debates and the relevance of the themes, which were “in line with the reality of offshore services”. Silva also summarizes well the next steps of Actemium, which always aims for excellence in its services: “Now is the time to put all the learning acquired here into practice”.
