Powered by Purpose

Why are you even in business? Is it to make a buck, by hook or by crook?

We hope not, because you probably won't. In fact, evidence shows that the businesses that succeed are those that have values -- and make clear what those values are.

No, we're not talking about nice little "mission statements" printed on laminated cards or your website's "About" page. We're talking about becoming Powered by Purpose.

Bestselling author Scott Deming is going to show you how to shake your business up during a dynamic opening session. You'll learn how to become more profitable and how to rediscover why you are in business, find team members who share your values (and how to deal with those who don't), and build meaningful relationships with customers who crave them.

It won't be easy. But it will be the start of your company's next, most successful phase.

Next Gen Leadership

Are you good at running a contracting business the way it was supposed to be run yesterday? If your advisors used to be great contractors 5, 10, 15, even 20 years ago ... how much do they know about contracting in 2016?

Former ACCA chairman Ray Isaac isn't yesterday's contractor. He's the ultimate "next generation" leader in a family business, and he's turned Isaac Heating & Air Conditioning from a good local contractor into a great regional powerhouse.

He's the first to admit that everything his company does can be used by other contractors just as well. From a laser focus on business fundamentals to a big-picture view of cutting-edge technology, marketing and workforce development, Ray has developed a set of techniques that you can put to work right away in your company.

In the closing general session at BTO, Ray Isaac is going to open his books and his heart and show you how any contracting business -- of any size -- can become a "next generation" business success, and leave yesterday's contractors in the dust.
