“Designed with the betterment of the industry in mind, the Excellence school is open to all professionals in the construction and industrial space, not only STAFDA members,” STAFDA said in its announcement. “With an agenda packed with forward-thinking, interactive, and practical workshops taught by highly qualified and respected industry speakers, attendees create their own curriculum focusing on their own professional needs.”

Topics and speakers will include:

  • A keynote from Dirk Beveridge on “The Noble Calling of Distribution” and his workshop “The Potential Equation.”
  • Sales expert Paul Reilly with “Value-Added Selling” and Crush Price Objections.”
  • “Revolutionize Your Business with AI” and “Cybersecurity: How to Stop Today’s Hackers” from Mike Foster, who will also moderate a “Future of Distribution Panel” discussion.

STAFDA members will receive preferential pricing, however, the program is designed to serve the construction, industrial, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, LBM, safety, concrete, or any other market in the construction channel, STAFDA said.

The program is open to distributors, manufacturers, rep agents, general contractors, industry buying groups and “any professional who wants to learn and grow in their career,” according to the announcement.
