This event is the only executive level workshop and leadership conference for the power sweeping industry. Progressive Sweeping is anticipating the opportunity to gather with other power sweeping professionals in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 8th and 9th to focus on business growth.   

John Lankford is the 2018 Sweeper Summit Keynote Speaker. He has designed and implemented executive education and leadership programs with GE, the University of Michigan Business School, and the Center for Creative Leadership. He has been tapped as an expert business source by prominent media such as The New York Times, CBS, and Business Magazine, in addition to having been a syndicated business columnist. John Lankford was recognized as the 2007-2010 Associate Business Advisor of the Year in North America and brings proven executive experience and best practices to select companies every year. He served 18 years at the Executive Education Center at Ford Motor Company and is former Senior Director of Ascension Health Learning Institute. John will be speaking to Sweeper Summit attendees about the importance of leadership and how to build high performance within our companies.

Accompanying Lankford will be several other educational presenters. Break-out sessions will deliver professional insights on business topics such as performance ratios, asset protection planning strategies, and succession and transition planning. In addition to these sessions and networking opportunities, many vendors will be on hand to demonstrate the latest technology and equipment specific to the power sweeping industry.

The Sweeper Summit and Equipment Expo is the first of its kind. This summit evolves from Sweeper Summit, initiated seven years ago by 1-800-SWEEPER, a nationwide sweeping service alliance.
