A New Opportunity

One-on-one expert business consulting is valuable... especially if it's free

A while back, I visited with a remodeler who happened to have an appointment with a consultant that day. I asked if I could sit in, and he agreed. The consultant was a well-known industry professional specializing in sales and operations. I listened as my remodeler friend outlined what was happening in his business, and the consultant offered suggestions. Three things impressed me enough that I still remember them today.

First: the consultant’s accuracy. He correctly diagnosed bottlenecks in the remodeler’s processes and offered clear solutions that the business owner hadn’t thought of because he was too close to the problem. And these weren’t pat, templated insights, they were customized to the remodeler’s exact business needs.

Second: speed. The appointment lasted half an hour—more like 25 minutes after you subtract hellos and goodbyes. Yet the consultant managed to squeeze incredible value into that short time. He listened, asked a few laser-focused questions, and then moved right into his insights.

Third: the remodeler’s reaction to the session. He told me that, in terms of ROI, it was the best business investment he had made. Before I left that day, he had already scheduled meetings with his leadership team to start implementing the consultant’s solutions.

I tell you that to tell you this: At Pro Remodeler, we’ve created a new opportunity for remodeling and home improvement businesses. This fall, we bring you The Pinnacle Experience, a three-day event that will be like jet fuel for your business. Part of that fuel is our Subject Matter Experts.

Using the value of industry consultants as our guide, we reached out to the brightest minds and most successful business owners in remodeling and home improvement, and these professionals have agreed to be our consultants. Attendees can book 20 minutes with one SME of their choice (until the time fills up) and get customized advice on operations, marketing, business processes, budget, company vision, and more. This opportunity would cost thousands of dollars elsewhere, but is free when you register for The Pinnacle Experience 2023.

But that’s not all that Pinnacle offers. We’ve designed this event with inspiring, relevant content in three different formats.

1) For one-on-one business consulting, there are the SMEs.

2) If you want to learn from your peers in remodeling, hop into one of our roundtable sessions. These informal conversations are hosted by expert facilitators and range on topics from sales training to which KPIs remodelers track.

3) Check out a lineup of powerful speakers discussing smart growth, technology, leadership, building a winning company culture, and a whole lot more.

The Pinnacle Experience is September 11-13 in Philadelphia. To register, go to proremodelerpinnacle.com.
