Your Prosperous

Pet Business: HOW TO TURN THE STRESS FROM SUCCESS INTO FUEL TO CREATE THE BUSINESS YOU WANT Kristin Morrison

Kristin Morrison, founder of Six-Figure Pet Business Academy™, grew her pet care business from a thought to hugely successful company. And in her keynote address, Kristin will share how her pet business initially grew by accident and what she had to learn in order to grow the business on purpose, how what she most wanted (success) brought something she didn’t want (stress) and how she worked with that stress to eventually create a 3-day workweek. Kristin will also talk about the negative mindset that not only kept her business from being profitable, but also had her working 12-14 hour days. She’ll share the unusual method she used to break free from that negative mindset in order to make more profit, have more time and fall in love with her business again.

Owner/Manager Seminars FOR YOUR FACILITY

Greg Taylor

It is hard to overemphasize the importance of selecting the right animal enclosures for your pet resort. These days, this means multiple types, designs and materials to meet the different housing needs required in a modern facility. Customers want to feel good about where their pet will be staying, so the dog runs and enclosures need to make a flattering first impression. These needs also have to be balanced with safety for facility staff, protection for the pet guests, as well as disease prevention and operating efficiency. In addition, the animal enclosures are often one of the biggest line items in the construction budget. This presentation will focus on recent trends in pet resort housing, since the choices have grown dramatically in recent years for gates, isolation panels, and accessories. This program is one hour long on Thursday April 30th from 9 AM – 10 AM

THE ANIMALS, YOUR STAFF, AND PROTECTING THE HEALTH OF ALL Annette Uda

Did you know that 60% of existing human infectious diseases and 75% of emerging infectious diseases have an animal original? The reality is that, along with the mutually beneficial aspects of the human-animal bond, infectious diseases that can be naturally transmitted between animals and humans (aka zoonotic diseases) impact the health of the animals in your care, the humans who care for them, and the bottom line of your business. In this session, we’ll examine the interesting interconnected health aspects and infectious disease mitigation for both humans and animals in your pet care facility.

The Why, When & How

TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS

Teija Heikkila

Competition in the pet care industry is fiercer and more diverse than ever. App-based providers, new brick & mortar facilities, and flashy corporate companies are aggressively trying to lure your customers away.

We’ll examine the best ways to grow and expand (with or without increasing physical space), how to know when the time is right, and how to finance your new growth. This program is one hour long on Thursday April 30th from 11 AM – 12 PM

$ LABOR SERIES PART I: THE IMMEDIATE & LONG-TERM IMPACT OF LABOR COSTS ON YOUR BUSINESS

Teija Heikkila, Laura Laaman & Jake Romero

(Tuesday April 28th 9 AM – 11 AM) Labor costs are increasing rapidly, causing pet care facilities to struggle with profitability and value more than ever before. This session is the first of a three-part series focusing solely on this one critical expense: How to Measure, Control, and Reduce Payroll. Part 1 provides key performance indicators for labor expense and its impact on the immediate profitability of your business as well as its long-term value. We’ll examine different business models by providing real life examples while helping you analyze your own business. Labor I sets the stage for the rest of this timely series and is highly recommended if you plan to attend Labor II and/or Labor III. PART II: REDUCING YOUR LABOR COSTS Jake Romero (Wednesday April 29th from 9 AM – 10 AM) Labor is the single biggest expense for a pet care facility. When managed properly, it can result in an efficient, top-quality, and highly profitable business. On the other hand, poorly managed labor leads to the inefficiency and high labor costs that can kill a pet care business. Too many pet care facility owners just look at the bottom-line total labor cost, not realizing that one area of the business is way overstaffed—or worse, losing money. In this seminar, we’ll discuss proven ways to reduce your labor costs while running the most efficient and profitable business possible. It is recommended that you attend the Labor I session if planning to attend Labor II or III sessions. PART III: RETAIN GREAT STAFF AND REDUCE TURNOVER Ashley Caywood (Thursday April 30th from 9 AM – 10 AM) Turnover is typically the number one reason for high payroll cost, and in today’s tight labor market, facility owners struggle with retaining employees who often leave at a moment’s notice. This affects a business’ ability to grow, provide high-quality of care and is taxing on managers and owners. In this session, Joe will provide tangible takeaways on how to retain & grow the employees you spend time and money on training, and stop the leaking of good talent. Special points will be discussed regarding the millennials and their approach to employment. It is recommended that you attend the Labor I & II sessions if planning to attend the Labor III session.

The Right Avoid Predictable Revenue Mix LABOR Teija Heikkila & Laura Laaman

LAWSUITS

Did you know that not all revenues are created equal? This fast-paced, interactive session covers all services offered by pet care facilities and breaks them down from the most desirable to least profitable revenue streams. We’ll discuss the pros & cons of all income and determine the right mix to increase profitability and business value, as well as how to change it up if your mix is lopsided.

Unfortunately, labor-related lawsuits are at an alltime high. Pet care facility owners may be innocently making decisions that are noncompliant with current labor laws. This powerful seminar will give pet care facilities a checklist of the most timely and costly areas as well as tools to protect their business and profits.
