Informative. Thought-provoking. Relevant. Customized for today’s design/build/installation professional, this symposium will feature unique, practical applications and how-to educational sessions.


Start Clean Finish Clean

Thomas, Principal, Envisor Consulting A Best Practice in Design/Build Excellence – There are some great advantages to landscape design/build when you are a small company: the jobs are cool, you can make good money and the finished product can be very rewarding. But, as you grow, add staff and delegate responsibility to others, it seems that getting the job done right becomes a challenge, you’re not making the money you made when you were smaller . it’s just not that fun anymore. What happened?

Ken Thomas will answer this question and share his experience with building an effective design/build delivery system that allowed him to break the mold and grow his design/build division to more than $10 million. Participants will leave with:

* A better understanding of what may be holding them back
* A clear understanding of what it takes to grow a landscape
design/build business with profitability and quality of life
* A proven system and set of processes that guarantee consistent
results on every job
* Excitement about the future
