During three days in July, business and technology will collide into one sensational learning experience—Sage Summit.
At this year’s conference, you’ll hear Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, share his journey from DIY magazine publisher to one of the world’s biggest industry titans. Also on deck will be Robert Herjavec and Daymond John of the hit TV show “Shark Tank,” ready to help you perfect your investment pitch. And then there are actresses and entrepreneurs Gwyneth Paltrow and Zooey Deshanel (one of my favorites) who will discuss how doing good is good for business.
Among the other speakers, you’ll also find top construction industry experts and successful contractors providing advice on topics that directly impact your business, such as:
What’s the outlook for the construction industry in 2017? AGC chief economist Ken Simonson will provide a glimpse of where the economy is heading next year, including which segments are growing or declining, and why.
Is the construction labor shortage holding back your business? We’ll show you how technology can help you get more done with the staff you already have.
Improving GC/Sub relations. Construction industry consultant Gregg Schoppman with FMI will lead a discussion on how you can improve GC/sub relationships in your business and run a smooth construction operation.
Tracking key performance indicators of a construction company. An industry panel will outline what business and project performance indicators are vital for you to monitor and the tools that can help you track them.
How to avoid common pitfalls and minimize risk in your construction firm. Hear from construction attorney Alexander Barthet about liens, contract rules, and more, so you can protect your business.
There aren’t many business destinations quite like Sage Summit. As one regular Summit attendee put it: “I’ve been to so many conferences and Sage Summit is by far the most impressive.” Join us in Chicago, July 25-28, and see for yourself what all the excitement is about.
