Keynote Speaker: Adam Weiner presenting “Journey Greatly”
Adam Weiner spent 14 years in leadership roles as a Navy SEAL, where he led both tactically and strategically. Following his time with the SEALs, Weiner turned his leadership experience to his two businesses: his profession — helping people with financial planning, and his passion — running Hatmada. Weiner spearheaded Hatmada in 2017 to teach character, leadership, and teamwork as a coach and speaker.
Today, he keynotes around the country to share his message with individuals and teams. We’re very excited to host Adam Weiner as he presents “Journey Greatly”, his keynote address, to our team and yours.
Economic Forecast with Dr. Paul Isely
There’s nothing more important to construction professionals than understanding what to expect from the upcoming year of business. Dr. Paul Isley, the Associate Dean of the Seidman College of Business at GVSU will present a comprehensive economic forecast for the industry in 2020. In past years, Dr. Isley has focused on important industry issues like housing conditions and the state of the construction labor force. This year’s economic forecast is sure to be just as enlightening as Dr. Isley again fills us in on what to expect from the upcoming year, with a spotlight on the issues that are most important to our industry.
