The Symposium will feature four panel discussions relating to the topics listed here:
Panel #1: Cleaning During A Pandemic
The COVID panel’s goal will be to educate and inform cleaners about the concerns, opportunities, and pitfalls that a business should be thinking about during the pandemic.
+ Others coming soon!
Panel #2: Social Media Marketing
While social media is over a decade old, many service business owners are still confused and skeptical of using social media to attract leads and communicate with clients. Many who attempt to leverage platforms like Facebook and Instagram are simply creating stock ads. This panel will be dedicated to offering advice and examples of campaigns that work.
Panel #3: Operations
Over 50% of the industry is still identified as single owner operators or Mom and Pop shops. This panel will address some of the growth hacks focused on the internal operations and procedures within the business to help build company culture and ensure accountability needed for growth.
Panel #4: Building Your Business Is an Inside Job
Eric Sprague and Larry Wilberton from MorningTechMeeting.com will run a panel with Bill Yeadon, Dan Udy, and Bruce DeLoatch where the panel discusses why working on yourself is the only path to building a great business.
What will the Symposium look like?
Virtual - but still together.
While this year's event will be entirely online, we aren't giving up on creating a social atmosphere. The event platform will enable all attendees, speakers, and exhibitors to interact through posts within the platform itself, as well as direct messages & group chats.
Social interaction - in real-time.
In addition to the real-time social networking abilities, live coaching rooms will be available during most Symposium hours. These virtual rooms will provide a space for anyone to receive business guidance from coaches and even fellow business owners. The goal of these rooms is to provide a place for open and honest business-centered conversation.
Pick from 24 lectures/panels - all streamed live.
Each day will feature 8 lectures/panels that will be streamed LIVE. No pre-recorded content is allowed!
Watch any session from any device with the Attendify mobile app.
This symposium is not a money-grab for us. Instead, we've decided to donate 51% of all profits* from this event to The Children's Heart Foundation, the country's leading organization solely dedicated to funding congenital heart defect (CHD) research. This is a cause near and dear to the ServiceMonster family, and we're honored to have the opportunity to contribute to their funding. For more information on The Children's Heart Foundation, go to the link below.
* The remaining 49% of profits will go towards next year's event.
The schedule outlines five main room types: Lecture rooms, exhibitor booths, coaching rooms, social rooms, and the main stage. - Lecture rooms (white time slots) are for speakers and discussion panels. - Coaching rooms will contain a room moderator (coach) and will facilitate public professional conversations focused on helping one business at a time. - Social rooms will contain no vendor or marketing promotions and will provide access to conversation areas during and after the show. - The main stage will host the keynote, a ServiceMonster webinar, and closing ceremonies. - Exhibitor booths will be hosted by each exhibitor.
