Learning Labs/Education Sessions
he HVAC Profession, just like the music profession, takes a great deal of talent, a very high level of skill and dedication to continuous practice, learning and improvement. Having the highest quality instruments and tools, along with the “know how” to play them at their absolute peak performance makes you a STAR every time you are in front of your customer. SCAHACC’s 2011 Tough Times Tour Convention and Trade Show is the perfect venue to hone your skills; find the right tools; and get prepared for YOUR ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE – your next call!
Plans are being made now to host sessions on Friday with “5 ways to grow your business” for our dealers as well as “how to get the most out of a trade show” for our vendors. Then on Saturday, there will be six learning labs to chose from, as this Rock Star event really heats up! You won’t want to miss the Tough Times Tour in 2011! There will be something for everyone including: “hands-on” test equipment training, CEO roundtable discussions, sales coaching sessions and more! More details will be shared as they are “tuned-up”! We know that you will be impressed by the 11 JAM-PACKED learning labs and educational sessions SCAHACC has put together. There’s no time like January 27-30 to learn and prepare how to take your talent and skill to the next level while networking with some of the industry’s greats. Let SCAHACC help you build TOUGHER TEAMS during these TOUGH TIMES!
MAKE YOUR NEXT CALL YOUR ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE!
