During the week of April 16th, more than 60 foundation repair contractors from throughout the United States and Canada attended training at Foundation Supportworks in Omaha, NE. Throughout the week, attendees were trained in the areas of marketing, sales and installation of Foundation Supportworks products. In addition to classroom and field training, the attendees also benefited from the opportunity to network with other foundation repair companies throughout North America.
The four-day installation training included hands-on training at several different jobsites, where the attendees received firsthand experience installing push piers, helical piers, slab piers, Geo-Lock™ wall anchors, CarbonArmor™ and PowerBraces™. The installation training also included 5 hours of classroom training where the attendees learned about the more technical aspects of the product installation.
The three-day sales training covered topics such as product features and benefits, interviewing the customer to learn about their wants and needs, proper diagnosing and inspection, and presenting solutions to the customer. Sales training attendees were also encouraged to bring their laptops to receive hands-on training on the exclusive Foundation Supportworks sales presentation and proposal generating software program.
Owners from across the Foundation Supportworks dealer network recently attended the 2012 Owner’s Meeting on the Caribbean Island of St. Maarten. We had a record turnout at this year’s event, with more than 70 dealer offices represented and over 140 attendees.
It’s not very often that a group of business owners are able to come together, share successes, get advice about common challenges, learn about new tools available, and strengthen the connection they feel to one another. One can really feel the power that a network of the best foundation repair contractors in North America truly has at these events.
Foundation Supportworks presented on topics such as the impact of accountability within an organization, new sales and installation tools to help our businesses be more efficient, recruiting and hiring the most talented employees, internet marketing strategies, and much more. The Owner’s Meeting gave attendees some well deserved relaxation and sunshine, great laughs, and most importantly, a lot of good insight on how to reach new levels of success within their business!
