Learn from Experts at Sweeper Summit 2014

1-800-SWEEPER will host their next Sweeper Summit November 10-12, 2014 at the Embassy Suites Lakefront in beautiful downtown Chicago.

The Sweeper Summit is the premier executive level workshop retreat in the power sweeping industry. Enjoy two and a half days of fellowship with 1-800-SWEEPER partners, vendors and invited guests.

“The Sweeper Summit was one of the most informative, inspiring and motivating weekends of my career,” says Nik Biddinger, Great Lakes Sealing and Striping, Traverse City, Mich. “Not only did I receive a substantial amount of key information about sweeping, but it also caused me to reevaluate our business and set a new set of goals. The speakers were outstanding!”

This year’s nationally-renowned speakers include Tom Searcy, David Avrin and Nancy Drew. Tom Searcy is a nationally-recognized author, speaker, and the foremost expert in large account sales. His methods of unlocking explosive growth were developed through years of real-world success. By the age of 40, Searcy had led four corporations, transforming annual revenues of less than $15 million to more than $100 million in each case. Nancy Drew is a business consultant helping business owners increase productivity, maximize profits and cut costs. She is a real-world expert with a passion for sharing her proven methods for igniting business sales and success. David Avrin is an international marketing speaker, branding guru, and top-selling author who brings his high-energy and content-rich signature presentations to audiences around the world.

Participants discuss best practices as well as participate in round table discussions specific to the sweeping industry. “Some of the best money I ever spent! The best part is the attendees are not your competitors, you can ask questions and they will be open and honest with you,” says Michael Cantel, owner of Cantel Sweeping, Gresham, Ore.

Ken LaCroix of TrackPoint Business Advisors will once again lead the group in analyzing benchmarking data composed of compiled data from our groups’ various partner member companies. This invaluable resource for the power sweeping industry offers a composite view of information such as the amount of overtime paid, cost of insurance, employee turnover rate and more. Past benchmarking sessions have been so insightful that they were extended to allow for more engagement and interaction between partners.

“We benefited greatly especially from the best practices and the benchmaring survey we participated in,” says Sylvia Richards, Asphalt Enterprises, Raleigh, N.C. “The summit was educational and we received information that involved specific topics that are vital to not only us as a member of 1-800-SWEEPER, but us as a company.”
