I arrived at the Seminar around 3:00 and it was still going strong. Great information.Top notch job presentations, packed with valuable insights and tips. Spoke with newcomers as well as some who've been in the industry 10+ years and all agreed they gained a wealth of knowledge today.

Looking forward to joining Jack and Matt for dinner shortly.

SEMINAR UPDATE

Getting ready for day 2. Many of the sponsors and most of the additional attendees for the pre-seminar classed arrived last night. The networking started poolside last night with the contractors and vendors sitting in the pool courtyard tipping back a few.

Looking forward to another great day in Albany!

Matt,

Nice turnout at the seminars. Jack looks to be in prime teaching mode. However, I shudder at the thought of the slide in the 1st picture above.

Wood Restoration - Opportunities

Swing Sets :disillusionment:

Try to keep Jake and Peirce in line. Have a great Albany R/T!

I had a chance to chat with Charlie Arnold from the PWNA. What a great time!. He is an interesting time and has a pretty good business as well. Its kind of cool to meet people that you only know from cyberspace. There are many more likes between people than differences when you can speak face to face!

I hear allot of good things from Matt's event...I ALWAYS hear good things about MATT's events!

And I also heard that contractors actually learned something they can use in their work. So many times you go to a " Round Table" and it's all about party and not about substance.

We need more events likes Matts. The days of going to an event because someone is offering free food and later everyone meets at the pub is something I am not really interested in. If I spend hundreds of dollars, miss thousands of dollars in lost work because I went an event, I want to learn something from that event of which I can use in my business to make more money. Matt's Event is one of those events where you go ....learn....and then apply it to make more money while having a good time.

Just got back. What a great event Jimbo. My boss(wife) is pressuring me to look into "The Water Fed Pole" especially after she talked to Thad.. Amazing stuff you can learn at some of these events that you never even considered before..

There's some other things we learned about and received more information about such as something where about to use which is called "Melissa Data".

Also without dropping any names it's always a pleasure meeting people in person where you can be at odds on in the net.

Great Job by Jack, Matt & Mary and everyone who participated in this event. One of the best I've been to and I've been to many:)

I just got back from the 2013 Pressure Washing Seminar in Albany, New York. I had such a great time catching up with old friends and making many new ones.

The week started out teaching day one of the Pressure Washing and Wood Restoration Class. I had lost my voice on Tuesday night but was able to teach on Wednesday. I was very fortunate that Matt had the majority of the topics on day one of the class. On Thursday morning my voice was nonexistent in the early morning and didn’t think it would be possible to teach the class. Once I put on the microphone I was able to speak and teach my path of the Wood Restoration class.

On Thursday afternoon the sponsors were very busy setting up their booths. The Thursday night Networking Reception could not have been better, the place was packed with both contractors and sponsors. Most of the contractors took advantage of this time to speak with the sponsors to learn more about their products and services.

Friday morning started out with Sam Jackson from Hydro Tec talking about maintaining and troubleshooting your equipment. Sam was a special guess which I received compliments about for the entire event. I would like to thank both Sam and Hydro Tec for their involvement at our event.

The second presentation was done by Matt Johnson and Tom DeFrancesco about the experiences they had responding to the disaster left behind after hurricane Sandy. Both Matt and Tom spent many weeks in a devastated area on Long Island helping homeowners getting their lives back on track.

Thad Eckhoff from Pressure Washing Resource Association (PWRA) followed with a presentation on how to dominate your market. Thad shared many of the tools and techniques he has used to dominate his markets. It was very nice to meet Thad for the first time.

The final presentation was done be Steve Blyth from J Racenstein where he explained in detail all the features and types of water feed pole systems. Steve and Dwight demonstrated one of their water pole systems later that day. I would like to thank Steve for taking the time out of his busy schedule to come to the event.

The afternoon was filled with demos run by Matt Johnson of Pressure Washing Equipment. He demonstrated the use of a surface cleaner that was attached to a recovery system as well as a M-Jet and a Hydro Tec extension wand.

Saturday morning started out with a presentation from a certified QuickBooks expert. She shared with us many ways to use QuickBooks to be more productive as well as its accounting capabilities.

The rest of the morning consisted of several breakout sessions which included Constant Contact, roof cleaning, high end wood restoration, decorative and protective coatings and safety. All of the sessions were well received.

We ended the day with a catered lunch followed by many giveaways. The grand prize, a Hydro Tec recovery system found a new home.

I would like to thank all of the sponsors for making this event possible.
