Pre-conference Workshops

Project Management in Construction

In the project management field, there are large differences between managing teams and projects in a technical or office environment, vs. leading projects in the construction world. In this seminar, we will dive into the specifics of what it takes to lead, manage, negotiate, and successfully thrive in the construction project management industry.

Building a Competent and Confident Construction Crew

Regardless of the position you are in, teamwork and communication are the backbone of successful construction projects. In this full-day, immersive learning workshop, we will explore essential skills that empower individuals to excel in their roles, foster effective communication, and become confident professionals both on and off the jobsite. Through team-building exercises and dynamic discussions, attendees will walk away with techniques and tools that will foster a positive and productive work environment.

Client Building: Becoming the “Go To” Company

Customers often want your company to do another project because of your crews. Your #1 “weapon” to build client retention and relationship is found in your project leaders and work crews. Sure, estimators and business development are key players, but if our customers do not view our company as the “Go To” contractor, we will struggle to build client retention. This workshop is chalked full of client building techniques that project teams can execute to win customers for life. You and your team will learn several of the best held secrets to your crews making “raving fans” out of your clients.

Wednesday Keynote – The Scars of Safety

Whether it’s on the job or off, when an accident occurs very serious consequences may be the result.  In this session, a panel of workers will share the personal stories of workers who have experienced life-changing injuries. Through each story, attendees will experience the importance of following safe work practices to prevent similar events from happening to them. Each story will give a different perspective and will show just how important it is to be aware of safety procedures and your surroundings as nobody expects to be injured. You can have all the training in the world, but if you do not apply the information, you may have the potential of becoming a statistic. This session will address the “it won’t happen to me” attitude. Training, reminders, and enforcement penalties are important, but sometimes, real life examples of workplace accidents do more to convince workers to comply with what you’ve been trained to do. Because after all, should our employment dictate our quality of life for the remainder of our lives?
