The Home Improvement Economic Summit is less than two weeks away and we have had many requests from both attendees and those wishing to attend to publish the agenda for the program online.
Unfortunately we cannot accommodate this request as the schedule of events will frequently change (even up to the day before the program). What we can do however is provide a list of the topics we will be covering as well as some of the panelists who will participate on October 27th and 28th.
The topics we will cover include:
- The state of the home improvement industry heading into 2010
- Trends and projections relating to the economy
- Legal issues that have arisen in the past year (and those that are on the horizon)
- The Lead Paint Act
- The fallacies relating to most canvassing programs
- An updated sales training program
- Whether to acquire another company (or be acquired?)
