SiteOne invests in Women in the Green Industry Conference
SiteOne Landscape Supply is growing the profession by hosting the 23rd annual Women in the Green Industry Conference (WIGI), this year held in Tucson, Ariz., Sept. 19-22, 2019. Registration is now open to attend the four-day, women-focused professional development event.
“We stand behind helping women advance in the landscaping industry,” said Amber Baker, division marketing manager-west for SiteOne Landscape Supply. “This event is more than learning new business growth strategies, women can network and share best practices, which benefits the growth of the entire landscape industry.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to improve work-life balance, enhance effectiveness and achieve goals with breakout sessions such as — “Building a Healthy Sandbox”, “Growing Your Business Through Digital”, “Socializing Social Media” and “Serving the Millennial Customer”. This year’s keynote speaker is Susan Packard, co-founder of Scripps Network Interactive and former chief operating officer at HGTV. Packard will highlight emotional fitness and discuss how to develop supportive work relationships for leaders while building a healthy company culture.
In partnership with Project EverGreen, registrants can also participate in a volunteer landscaping project at Kennedy Park in the City of Tucson.
SiteOne customers can apply 90,000 Partners Points to cover the registration fee of $1,199 (includes roundtrip airfare, hotel, ground transportation, group meals, classes and keynote sessions). Register for Women in the Green Industry at www.SiteOne.com/WIGI.
