The "Profit Doctor" is coming to Oklahoma, and he will bring his healthy recipes for builder success to the Oklahoma Building Summit & Expo Aug. 26-27 at Oklahoma City's Cox Convention Center.
Charles C. Shinn, Jr. - also known as the "Profit Doctor" -- will kick off the 2015 Oklahoma Building Summit & Expo at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 26. Also, Shinn will lead two workshops on Business Management during two of Wednesday's breakout sessions.
The 2015 Building Summit & Expo is designed to increase profits of Oklahoma's home builders, from Shinn's opening keynote presentation to the closing talk Thursday from economist Ted C. Jones.
A special thank you to our friends at HUB International for being the presenting sponsor for this year's OK Building Summit & Expo. They also brought in Mid-Continent Group and Grain Dealers Mutual Insurance Company as part of their team.
In between the opening and closing presentations will be two days of educational workshops that will provide tips on the latest construction techniques, business management education and even tracks on best practices in the building industry.
Surrounding all of the educational classes and presentations will be an Exposition by scores of industry-related business that offer the most advanced materials and solutions for builders.
The two-day Building Summit brings more opportunity for networking, continuing education and discovery of new concepts offered by vendors.
"I'm really excited about presenting an expanded Building Summit this year," said Phil Rhees, OSHBA President. "The booth space is selling quickly and momentum is picking up. And we have quite a few new presenters this year with a variety of content that we think will appeal to everyone. It will be time well spent for builders, associates, trades and exhibitors alike."
The Summit will kick off with a keynote talk at 8 a.m. on Aug. 26 from Shinn entitled "Strong Teams Win." Shinn will show us how to bring our teams to peak performance, which of course will translate to a healthier bottom line for builders.
Shinn will present two Business Management track breakout sessions in both morning and afternoon sessions on August 26.
After Shinn's keynote address, a series of breakout sessions begin with workshops on timely topics both morning and afternoon of both days. Morning sessions begin at 9:45, while the afternoon workshops begin at 2 p.m.
Lunch will be 11:30-2 p.m. each day to allow networking and vendor presentations in the Exhibit Hall. The Wednesday session will conclude with a reception in the Exhibit Hall from 3:30-5:30 pm, followed by a banquet dinner from 6:30-9.
