STOP operating your metal business and START growing it with our “MBA” program. Introducing the single best thing you can do for your metal business, and yourself. If you’re so busy keeping up with the daily demands of running your metal business that you have no time to set goals, make plans and develop your team, you’re not alone. The METALCON Business Academy (MBA) program, produced in partnership with the experts at Breakthrough Academy, will focus on the six most critical things every trades business must do to succeed in 2021 and beyond. What would normally cost hundreds of dollars, these six one-hour courses are available to you at NO COST!  


Owner of Breakthrough Academy (BTA) and past METALCON speaker, Danny Kerr, kicks off the MBA program next Wednesday, December 2, with Session One: “Building your 2021 One-Page Strategic Plan.” This session will walk you through a proven, step-by-step approach to creating a simple, yet effective annual strategic plan. The remaining five courses will cover topics such as staffing, increasing productivity and structuring your company for success and will be scheduled over the next several months to help you plan around your business needs. The last two courses will take place live at METALCON 2021 in Tampa. SPECIAL BONUS: If you take all six METALCON “MBA” courses, you’ll receive your diploma at METALCON 2021!
