Danny Kerr with BreakThrough Academy – METALCON 2018 Speaker
Most construction professionals are experts in their field but often lack the guidance and systems required to get themselves out of the day-to-day and into a more strategic role so they can grow their business to its full potential. Co-founder and Managing Partner of BreakThrough Academy, Danny Kerr, will be on hand at METALCON 2018 to offer solutions to the biggest challenges faced when trying to grow your business. Mr. Kerr will lead the session, The 3 Keys To Getting Out of the Day-to-Day in Your Business, on Wednesday, October 10 from 2:00 – 2:45 pm in the new METALCON Theatre. As with all education sessions this year at METALCON, this is included in your new Total Experience registration. Danny Kerr had a humble beginning and worked hard to create his own success in life. As a dyslexic student in school, he was treated differently throughout his upbringing and these experiences fueled his desire to push boundaries and prove what was possible. Danny went on to start his own successful painting company and took a leadership position for a franchise company at age 20, growing sales from $400,000 to $1,300,000 in one year. After spending the next six years scaling businesses, Danny began BreakThrough Academy as a way to open horizons for all trades business owners seeking guidance.
BreakThrough Academy believes in two core principles: choosing the entrepreneurial path is a courageous journey towards achieving a fulfilled life of freedom and control; and that the trades industries offer a thriving platform for a business owner to realize their maximum potential. They help entrepreneurs in the trades and home service industries take their businesses to the next level by leading clients along their journey with strong direction and a high level of support, so that each business maintains it’s creative individually yet is guided by proven principles that foster successful growth.
Take for example one of their clients, 505-Junk, who saw a 210% growth in a 18-month timespan. 505-Junk began as a class business project for co-founders Barry Hartman and Scott Foran, who were both attending university. “We didn’t have much to work with at the time,” says Barry, “Just the business plan, our dreams and a used pickup truck and a trailer that we’d found on the side of the road.” In five years, 505-Junk went cold calling prospective clients from a plywood desk in a basement to what is now an award-winning junk removal company with a team of 15 and revenue in the millions. BreakThrough Academy helped them with establishing a plan for solid profit margins, increased revenue and a market-preferred pay-by-weight business model.
By attending Danny’s workshop at METALCON, you’ll have the opportunity to learn some of the tools and insights to develop a highly effective organization, including:
- A proven system for recruiting the top talent in your industry
- Set processes to track your numbers on every job and predict how much profit you will make in 2019
- The unusual planning methodology that will focus your staff’s goals towards one common objective
- Bonus: you’ll get the exact forms and templates we’ve used to profitably scale our trades business
