A one-day workshop on Operational Efficiency, PLUS a one-day workshop on Exit Strategies and Succession Planning

Join us on Lake Muskoka in Gravenhurst, Ont., for our two-day, information-packed feature event on the Peer to Peer Network calendar.

Day one: Operational Efficiency 2.0. Join in for the hottest tips on efficiencies in managing and training your crews, materials and communication for higher profit and happier teams. Guest speakers will include Frank Bourque, Landscape and Hardscape Business Consultant, and Arden Urbano from Greenius, who will bring action-packed presentations to ramp-up your efficiencies and results.

Day two: Exit Strategies and Succession Planning. Meet up for an inspiring and information-packed keynote breakfast seminar with Mark Bradley, CEO of LMN. Then enjoy a panel discussion with five industry professionals (including Mark Bradley and Frank Bourque) who have either successfully sold or bought into landscape businesses. Hear their stories and learn the in's and out's of preparing your business for an ownership transition. After lunch, dive-in with a round-robin, open discussion forum where you'll network directly with each of the panellists for targeted advice and strategies to help you to formulate your business retirement goals.
