TORONTO — Jobber will hold its virtual conference, Jobber Professional Development (PD) Day, on March 24. Gary Vee, serial entrepreneur and 5-time New York Times best-selling author, will keynote the event, kicking off a day of sessions led by an array of expert speakers, including seasoned service professionals and business coaches.
Registration for the free event is now open.
Despite the economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, home service, which includes industries such as lawn care, plumbing, HVAC and contracting, demonstrated resilience throughout 2020.
“Jobber PD Day is yet another way for us to give back to—and celebrate—the people in home service who help keep our communities safe and running,” said Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder of Jobber. "2021 will be another fast-paced and challenging year for the home service category that is also ripe with opportunity for growth. The tips, resources and tools that Gary Vee and our lineup of expert speakers will share are invaluable for operating an in-demand small business during another year of economic curveballs.”
The opening keynote, “Redefining Leadership: Live with Gary Vee”, will highlight what makes a great leader, how to set up a better definition of success and what it takes to succeed in 2021. Vee will pull from his own experience of helping his father grow their family business from $4M to $60M in sales.
After the keynote, attendees will follow their own custom-built schedules consisting of workshops that matter the most to them.
The event will also provide live networking opportunities where attendees can connect with other home service professionals to talk shop, share advice and learn from peers. North American registrants will also be entered to win prizes that support the growing needs of a professional home service business, including vehicle wraps, new team uniforms, computers, tablets and smartphones.
Jobber PD Day is sponsored by Visa. At the event, Jorge Ortega, from the Visa Global Social Impact team, will lead a must-attend session on “Financial Planning for Company Growth,” that will explore best practices for budgeting, planning and goal setting.
