Robert Hager Speaking at the Ohio Contractors Association's Annual Conference - Jan. 29 - Feb. 5, 2020

Attorney Robert Hager will be speaking at the Ohio Contractors Association's Annual Conference in Maui, Hawaii sharing a simple practical approach to build your business' legacy (Succession Planning for the Legacy-Driven Business) and leading an interactive session about best practices for collaboration, risk management, and claims avoidance (Risky Business:  Know It, See It, Manage It).

Highlights include:

Succession Planning for the Legacy-Driven Business

What are you doing today to secure the legacy of your company tomorrow?  The future of the construction industry is filled with uncertainty, but your succession plan shouldn't be.  The construction workforce is an aging workforce.  How are you positioning your company to stay ahead of the fast-changing times?  Securing your company's "BHAGs - Big, Hairy, Audacious, Goals," doesn't just happen by accident.  It takes vision, discipline and strategic planning.  It takes proactive leadership - today.  Are you making sure you have the right people in the right seats?  Are you empowering the leaders of tomorrow by sharing your knowledge with them today?  What tools are in your toolbox to make a lasting difference, provide visionary leadership and make sound business decisions?  

Risky Business:  Know It, See It, Manage It

Even in Maui, construction claims and disputes can keep us up at night.  The construction industry is a Risky Business filled with uncertainty and complex challenges.  Are your perceptions of risk different than others?  How can you mitigate your company's risk?  What are the primary causes of project delays and how can they be avoided or effectively managed?  Awareness, communication and collaboration are key.
