It’s something every contractor business owner wonders about: how to succeed long-term. The good news is, while every organization is unique, you can take advantage of tools like technology for contractors, as well as guiding principles to make sure you’re leveraging that technology toward going the distance.
As a CRM and project management software team, we’re continually looking for practical ways to help contractors reach their goals.
This month, JobNimbus Sales Manager Jake Dempsey shares these ideas in an address titled: “How Technology Keeps You Accountable and Scalable”. This presentation is part of an “un-conference” called Rise: The Conference for Contractors. Jake is among 20 industry leaders delivering addresses that can help take your roofing or contracting business to the next level.
Here are a few additional details, as well as highlights from Jake’s talk.
All About RISE: (the Un-conference!)
The RISE event is different than others you may have attended. In fact, organizers call it an “un-conference”, because you won’t see the same format as other industry shows. Instead of featuring a convention floor with booths, the focus is on networking, meeting, teaching, and collaborating.
RISE focuses on elevating your business by improving the Contractor’s 10 Core Elements – Culture, Leadership, Recruiting, Sales, Marketing, Operations, Supplementing, Technology, Compliance, and Finance. Rise is hosted by Contractor Coach Pro, an online and in-person training company, and Catalyst, a networking group of industry professionals. The event is sponsored by Owens Corning and Beacon.
This year, Rise takes place in Oak Brook, IL March 21-22, 2018. Here are a few additional details from the conference’s site to give you a feel for programming and what attendees can expect to get out of it:
“For two days, 20+ industry experts who will be sharing specific action plans to improve attendees’ businesses including Jim Johnson, our keynote speaker. To maximize learning, this conference is divided into four specialist paths: Marketing, Leadership, Compliance, and Operations. Attending contractors can choose to attend all or some of the workshops based on what will generate the most impact for their business. There will also be breakout sessions with speakers that will include one of each of the four disciplines. Bring your whole team and allow each department to follow their own path to success.”
