Are You A Survivor?
Seminar For THE Systems Industry
Registrations are now being accepted for the System Built Housing Survivor’s Retreat. This retreat, sponsored by J. Rouleau & Associates, is specifically designed for business owners and managers of systems-built companies. Two separate programs will take place in Connecticut in late May-May 17 and 18 for modular and panel companies, and June 7 & 8 for log and timber frame companies.
The structure of the retreat is different from most programs corporate executives might attend, in which participation is only encouraged. In this format-consisting of a highly interactive brainstorming session that allows you to bounce your ideas off other industry leaders-participation is mandatory.
“The program is centered on the exchange of information from attendees,”Rouleau says. “Participants will have a chance to hear different perspectives on topics that are traditionally discussed only in-house, behind closed doors, to find out what works and what doesn’t. The retreat is an excellent opportunity to get your company tuned up for future growth. Attendees of the last retreat in Arizona said it was the most productive time they ever spent.”For additional information on the Survivor Retreat, a registration form and a list of possible topics, visit www.jrouleau.com (click Training Programs at left) or call Rouleau at 860-589-7391.
