Announcing the first-of-its-kind Summit on how to create and accumulate wealth as a landscape business owner. It is scheduled to take place during the Green Industry Expo in Louisville, Ky. on Wednesday Oct. 21.
The keynote speaker will be Mike Bogan, CEO of LandCare, formerly TruGreen LandCare. He will share his insights on the industry and his experiences from 25 years in the landscape business, and his involvement with acquisitions, integrations, private equity and what buyers are looking for.
This Summit is the brain child of Ron Edmonds and Jeffrey Scott, highly regarded consultants in the green industry. After spending many years helping their clients one-on-one with questions on how to buy and sell firms and build wealth, they developed this Summit. They will present practical ideas for improving your personal wealth, and building the value and salability of your firm. Participants will receive take-home tools to help with implementation after the Summit.
The all-day program includes:
1. Presentations by industry experts: Ron Edmonds and Jeffrey Scott.
2. Keynote presentation and Q&A with Mike Bogan, CEO of LandCare (formerly TruGreen LandCare) and former EVP of The Brickman Group
3. Panel discussion with owners who have hands-on experience in the acquisition or sale of a business.
4. Case studies and exercises to reinforce the content.
5. Networking with liked-minded contractors.
The program will help lawn and landscape business owners understand how to:
• Develop a game plan for building wealth.
• Understand your options for succession; begin to develop a plan
• Identify key areas of your business that need strengthening; develop strategies to address weaknesses.
• Dramatically expand the value of your business by applying Ron and Jeffrey’s wealth-building concepts.
• Improve the saleability of your firm.
