What the president of one construction company wrote…

Wayne,

Just wanted to thank you for today’s presentation.  I really appreciate your wisdom you’ve collected from all your experience, and it rings so true.  It’s very helpful to be reminded of all the things to consider when building and maintaining a successful company and team, as in the busyness of it all sometimes we forget how important all the little things are.   I took a lot from today’s course and I look forward to learning more tomorrow.

The lessons from the 80’s are just as relevant today as they were back then, and keeping up with the changing dynamics makes it all exciting and challenging.  I also agree wholeheartedly with your assertion that women in construction are a game changer, as their style of communication differs from men and can be a real advantage in a field dependant on timely and accurate information.   We’ve got some amazing women that work with us … the future is bright when we think outside the box of traditional routes up through the trades.
