Contractor Connect LIVE

Welcome to Contractor Connect LIVE!, a first-time dynamic two-day event where home service contractors from across North America will convene for a unique and interactive educational experience. Contractor Connect LIVE! is not your typical business training workshop; by popular demand it’s a platform for peer-to-peer idea sharing designed to be a combination of inspiration, collaboration, and innovation aimed at exploring creative solutions and strategies for achieving business success in today’s dynamic marketplace.

In an era where the home service industry is rapidly evolving, this is a crucial opportunity for contractors to stay ahead of the curve. Attendees will hear from fellow Contractor University members on addressing the six pillars of operating a successful and profitable contracting business that can scale:

  1. Leadership
  2. Finance/Accounting
  3. Operations
  4. Human Resources and Administration
  5. Branding, Marketing, Advertising, Opportunity Creation
  6. Sales and Customer Experience

Founding faculty member Drew Cameron will conduct several engaging contractor interviews and peer-driven Q&A sessions where attendees will hear from their peers about their successes, setbacks, challenges, and opportunities along with how and why they occurred.

What sets Contractor Connect LIVE! apart is the emphasis on active participation and collaboration. Attendees will not be just passive listeners; they will be collaborators and contributors with their table team from other companies. Following each contractor interview, each table team will brainstorm on a contracting pillar for each company at the table and then present their ideas to the room. This ensure all attendees learn from all other attendees. Drew will share his unique experiences as well as those of his clients and the latest trends in the industry.

Attendees will also set goals for each of the six pillars along with EPIC2024 takeaway integration for the next 90-days. Member account managers will be informed of the goals and will guide attendees to Contractor University resources to help ensure accountability and optimize for successful outcomes.

The event will feature a unique incentive system with prizes awarded to those who share the most or have the most creative and groundbreaking ideas in each of the six pillars (so bring your best ideas and be ready to share). We want every participant to leave with a wealth of knowledge and a network of like-minded professionals (with whom you stay in touch and possibly visit), ready to implement fresh strategies in their own businesses.

Join us in Austin for Contractor Connect LIVE!, where ideas will be born, connections will be made, and the future of home service contracting will be shaped.
