Training Tuesday – Building Better Foremen
Many great tradespeople take a foreman position and fail. Not for lack of skills or drive but simply for lack of guidance on how to be a great foreman.

The Winner’s Curse – A systems approach to winning more work and increasing profits: a June 4 course in Burnaby that looks at the goal of trying to minimize costs when tendering contracts. And too often, contractors focus solely on price, adopting strategies and pricing that can kill the rewards of winning the contract. These tactics can go so far as to threaten the company’s financial health. This breakfast presentation will focus first on how to be a smarter competitor in bidding situations and then on alternative strategies that will shelter you and your company from the price game, if not remove you from it all together.
