Continuing Education Session: "The Top 10 Reasons Contractors Succeed"
Same session will be offered on Monday from 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm

Presented by: Wayne Rivers, Co-founder and President, The Family Business Institute, Inc.

There is a great deal of material in the construction marketplace detailing the reasons contractors fail. However, there is comparatively little information about why some contractors experience tremendous success and why others - well, not so much. This presentation is an in depth look at the top 10 reasons contractors succeed and the requisite factors which can be copied and emulated in any size construction organization. The material in this presentation comes from years of research and close work with approximately 200 contractors in the U.S. and Canada.
