How will attending the 6th Annual Painting Profits Summit transform my painting business?   

If you’ve been to industry conferences in the past, you may have been disappointed because most of the speakers are often vendors trying to sell you something. You may have also heard from owners who gave general advice, but you didn’t walk away with anything practical to implement in your business.
At PPS 2022, we hand-select speakers based upon their actual achievements in the painting industry. Further, we ask all speakers to drill down on specific topics. Some of the topics we’ll be discussing are...

  1. Painter Recruitment Strategies That Work – Even During a Labor Shortage
  2. Managing Painting Projects in the Field for Maximum Profitability
  3. Retaining Key Employees Through Clear Compensation Plans & Incentives
  4. Breaking Into the Commercial Repaint Market
  5. Sales Strategies That Work During an Economic Recovery
  6. Marketing That Generates High-Quality Leads at Low Costs
  7. Holding Key Reports Accountable for Hitting Performance Metrics
  8. Operational Systems That Simplify Scheduling & Quality Control 
  9. And Much More You Will Not Want to Miss! 

What will I learn during my company’s personalized HOT-SEAT? 

During HOT-SEAT break-out sessions, you will be placed into a peer-group based upon the size of your company. This means you’ll be with owners who can identify with your struggles and relate to what you are trying to achieve.  

Each company has its own time in the “spot light.” First, you present your biggest BREAK-THROUGH to the group. This is a specific tool, strategy, process or tactic that has allowed you to solve a problem, create an opportunity or achieve some result. This is your way of “giving back” to the group. 

Next, you’ll present your biggest PROBLEM to the group so they can offer their insights and help you solve it. Every painter has his own problems. However, the good news is someone in your peer group will have already solved this problem – or at least made remarkable advances. This means you can solve your problems faster without having to go to the school of hard-knocks for your solutions!  

What will I learn during the Optional Pre-Day Operations Workshop: 4 Systems That Guarantee High-Profit, Low-Stress Field Operations?

During this 4-hour pre-day workshop, you’ll discover how to manage painting projects for high profitability while delegating field responsibilities to crew leaders. This eliminates the need for the owner to be continually on-site so you can free up your time for more profitable activities. You’ll walk away with done-for-you tools, templates and training that you can immediately implement in your painting business.
