Topic: Are You Ready For The Future? | The Future Remodeling Environment

Historic changes are about to affect the industry. Are you aware of them? According to a 2017 blog post in Pro Remodeler by our September leading industry speaker, Mark G. Richardson, he wrote: The remodeling industry is likely to face major changes in the next few years, yet no one seems to be talking about it. Instead, most conversations continue to be about the labor challenges, leads, time stresses, process improvement, and finding and developing the right salespeople.

Mark's presentation will provide answers to these questions:

  • How has the remodeling business changed?
  • The seven most common owner motivations
  • How to define growth?
  • What is the right pace for a healthy business?


So ultimately what will the changing remodeling landscape mean for your business and connection to future clients? By the end of the presentation, you will know these 8 takeaways:

  • 3 key ingredients for success
  • 5 areas to position for the future


AND A BONUS - Attendees will receive a copy of his book “Fit to Grow”!
