6 Roadshow ONEurope Rotterdam July 21 2015 Our ONEurope roadshow pre-event began in a very relaxing place the Havana Beach Club in Rockanje. The atmosphere gave us the opportunity to meet and talk to our Rotterdam colleagues. Colleagues who have been loyal to Huntsman over the years as well as a lot of new faces. It was a great foundation to encourage good energy and spirit for our roadshow the next day. The roadshow was introduced by our ELT colleague and site director Max van der Meer who was very grateful and so am I that so many of our Rotterdam team members were present at the event. Despite the a combination of difficult operational issues and the summer holidays we were absolutely delighted that about 100 people were curious to learn about how I visualize the future. The future is now As with all previous roadshows across Europe I explained why PU Europe needs to change. I said that I will lead by example and gave an insight on our market share and how urgent the requirement for us to stay ahead of the competition is. The competitions market share has been growing which means in turn that our market share has been decreasing in the recent past. Steen Weien Hansen Vice President Polyurethanes Europe EAMEI Having investigated the market thoroughly the ELT and I came to the conclusion that PU Europe needs to unfreeze both strategically and through improving our ways of working. Strategically our future focus will be to increase the MDI Di-iso split providing higher value growth for the business while emphasizing our downstream activities. I went on to say that if we all understand the urge to change and we have a common goal we can come together as ONEurope. We need to trust each other and be disciplined in our day to day work. The workshops provided us with interesting results and led by Sylvana Storey Change Manager the groups were challenged to take ownership for the next step of our ONEurope change journey. To summarize I felt enormous energy at the Rotterdam roadshow. Rotterdam associates showed me that they are ready to increase their asset reliability and in turn the service levels will be adjusted. No us and them cultures anymore. There are no Manufacturing or Sales silos in PU Europe. We are ONEurope. Column We are ONEurope
