I really enjoyed the seminar [The Superintendent's Job] in Florida. I have had all types of training over a 35 year full time military technician career; your team presented one of the best! Regarding seminars we invested highly in the education of our soldiers/technicians. Conflict resolution, managing difficult people, maintenance management for success and others were given to supervisors. We brought in Community college training for technicians, on the job, and they received college credit for their training.
I am glad Mesa Wood invested in me and sent me to your Seminar. I honestly experienced the best seminar ever attended. The material, format and presenters made this a unique experience. It is easy to see the passion from all of you during the seminar. ~Mesa Wood LTD
An attendee from Drees Homes shared the following successes after attending the Advanced Purchasing seminar:
I do not believe I would have come out as successful had I not attended your Advanced Purchasing seminar. Thank you. ~Drees Homes
I was glad to take part in this [Art of Purchasing] seminar and learn so much that will be helpful both for my work and for our company. Thanks also to Chuck, Ed, Matt, all the Builder Partnerships team, and the trade partner sponsors for your hospitality last week. You provided a good forum for us to meet other builders, get to know one another, and share our successes, challenges, and ideas. ~Gonyea Homes
I attended the Art of Purchasing Seminar last week (awesome!). I got more out of that class than any other continuing professional education (CPE) courses I have taken in the past. - Level Homes
What a privilege it has been for me to know Emma and Chuck Shinn and their affiliates. Their lives, their wisdom, their tender hearts for the needs of this industry, and optimism have been an inspiration beyond anything I can express, so thanks for caring and sharing. - Sabal Homes of Florida
We would like to thank Chuck for your help along the way. Your webcast, monthly letters and the rebate program were of great help and provided direction, inspiration and a little extra cash flow. The reason is, last year my partner and I decided to take advantage of the exuberant market and sold all our undeveloped holdings and completed build-out of our existing communities. We are now effectively on the sidelines. For a little background, we started our company in 2009 and were able to take advantage of the down turn via land/lot purchases. We then went on to complete the vertical construction on multiple communities along the Front Range. As you might suspect, the market treated us well.
