Boutique-Inspired Walk-In Closet Design Denise Butchko, President of Butchko and Company Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sales & Marketing Track - 0.1 CEU The percentage of people wanting to do high-end, boutique closet design is increasing. As people realize and acknowledge the value of storage space in their homes, many - particularly women - are allocating space to "dream closets" much like men have been allocating man space in the garage and the basement. Not only will this session show you examples of rooms that were turned into dream closets, I'll share some integral tools leading up to the design and execution of such detailed and intensely personal spaces. Here's what we'll cover: * T he advanced assessment goes beyond shoe count and long hang. I'll share the wide array of info I gather that's required for an effective design solutions for you and your client at this advanced level. * How to match "flow" and "function" with space parameters.This goes beyond putting in a "closet system" and into design aesthetics. * I'll share ways to discuss budgeting for such big, fancy closet spaces. As the author of The Consumer Guide to Closet Design and How To Design A Walk In Closet, I love sharing with other design pros the ins and outs of closet design. Learning objectives include: *C  onduct an in-depth assessment of client needs and wants incorporated with space parameters for effective design. * Understand specific space-planning issues as they relate to boutique closets. * Explore how to incorporate intelligent solutions. Managing Business Growth for Profitability and Sanity Fred Reikowsky, Principal, Legacy Business Leaders Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Business Management Track - 0.1 CEU The building industry continues to gather momentum, and that means many business owners in our industry are increasingly experiencing the stress, frustration and chaos that often accompany business growth. Successful business owners must learn how to navigate through these seasons of growth to survive and thrive. But without the tools and strategies to facilitate controlled and healthy growth, the toll that business owners pay physically, emotionally and financially could be unnecessarily high - even to the point of failure. There is a good side to this story because the turning point to business excellence is not far away. The first step to change is gaining 48 K+BB 43-52_KBB_1015_KBIScoverage.indd 48 an awareness of what can be versus what is and then implementing the skills and strategies necessary to support the desired change. The discipline to look into the future and purposefully direct behaviors and activities toward an ideal future is exactly what distinguishes successful businesses from average. You have to see it, want it and seize it! Start by intentionally taking the time to define what's most important - that is, what you want your organization to produce for you, your family and your employees. Then, carefully define and measure every activity to make sure the right results are being produced every day to set your organization on a trajectory for success. Business success is not random, and that is how small disciplines make a big difference. With discipline and focus as your companions, something else will become abundantly clear: Profit is not the destination, it's the fuel. Profit is a fundamental measurement of business success only because it allows us the freedom to enjoy the things that are most important to us, including the work itself. That's peace of mind! This session could well be the most valuable hour you spend in preparation for your future success. Wishing you the best! Learning objectives include: *D  escribe the four most important and compelling questions to ask first. * Recognize the three biggest barriers to business growth and how to overcome them. * Determine what strategy is best for your business. * Explore how to lead through resistance to change.
