WESTERVILLE, Ohio — The Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association (ONLA) will end the decade on a high note by gathering owners, key decision makers, and industry leaders for an intensive, two-day Member Summit: Management Retreat at Nationwide Hotel & Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio, Dec. 11 and 12.
The retreat will provide a fun environment for leaders to get inspired to make positive changes for their teams, create lasting industry connections, and set attainable goals for the future. Attendees will gain years of team-building and leadership knowledge essentially overnight from a trio of nationally recognized trainers, including Jim Paluch, Jon Petz, and John Kennedy.
“Whether you’re a time-tested leader in the green industry or an up-and-coming landscape business, you cannot afford to miss these two days of motivational speakers and networking opportunities to take your business to the next level,” said Joe Twardzik, division president for Wolf Creek Company–the event’s presenting sponsor. “An environment where leaders come together to get better results produces outcomes that grow business.”
