Landscape Ontario member business owners and upper managers are invited to attend this year’s two-day, LO Peer to Peer Muskoka Summit in Gravenhurst, Ont., Sept. 19-20, 2019.

Day one will look at understanding the financials of a business and how they measure up to others in the industry. See how your business performs in comparison to benchmarked industry data and learn how to improve on results in key areas.

Led by LO Peer to Peer Network Manager, Jacki Hart, and Dynascape’s Joe Salemi, the workshop will leave participants with a working spreadsheet and the power to identify patterns in their own business using financial numbers.

Day two will feature a panel of business owners who will discuss how to successfully scale up your business without losing your sanity. Moderated by Tony DiGiovanni, LO Executive Director, the panel will feature Janna Bradley, Scott Wentworth, Kevin Scott, Tyler Lockhart and Jacki Hart.

Discussions include the stress and impact of business growth on the owner, the leadership team and their families. The panel will also answer questions from participants and include a break-out session.

The intense workshops run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, and options for a social event after the conclusion of day one include a boat cruise and brewery tour.

The cost to attend is $375 for an LO member or $628 for a non-member. A special group rate of $239 per night is available until Aug. 6 for accommodations at the Residence Inn by Mariott, Muskoka Wharf by calling 705-687-6600. You must mention Landscape Ontario to receive the group rate.
