PRESENTERS:

Andy Skarda – APB’s Head Coach

Head Coach at the Association of Professional Builders, Andy specialises in helping business owners in the building industry identify and implement the skills and systems they need to be successful, without needing to go back to school. Or more importantly, without going bust.

Andy pivoted into his career as an executive coach when he discovered the two fundamental things that separate successful companies from those that are headed for trouble.

Firstly, that all businesses can be broken down into five manageable and functional disciplines. And secondly, successful companies create or capture, and then develop and repeat, successful systems.

Dennis Wong – APB Executive Coach

Throughout Dennis’ professional and business career, spanning almost forty years, he has worked for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and corporations in financial services, media, education, professional services, information technology (IT), and construction. 

Dennis has a passion for bringing about positive change through continuous improvement and innovative systems and solutions, as well as helping others achieve their full potential and perform at their best through coaching and mentoring.

Dennis works with business owners to grow their businesses, help their managers and team members to achieve higher levels of performance, and attain results faster by combining training to impart knowledge and develop new skills and coaching to facilitate transformative growth. 

what to EXPECT:

AU Retreat

Touch down on the tropical Hamilton Island on Wednesday afternoon.

Forget the stress of finding your way to the hotel and instead jump on onboard the complimentary airport transfer.

Check into your home for the next three nights at the Reef View Hotel.

Take a nap and relax for the afternoon before heading to the first event of the retreat…

Kick off the retreat with a two-course dinner and drinks by the beach with a group of like-minded professional builders and some of APB’s Executive Business Coaches.

Don’t have too late of a night though, because on Thursday morning, after you enjoy a buffet breakfast in the resort’s restaurant, you’re going to spend the full day with APB’s Head Coach, Andy Skarda, and his team working ON your building company.

AU Retreat Food

You and your fellow professional builders will be going deep into every crevice of your building company.

You’ll be creating a plan that keeps your business fully booked out in the months ahead as your competition begins to panic because prospects are no longer signing themselves up to building contracts like they were in 2021… And of course, we’ll stop during the day to enjoy a delicious lunch and refreshments.

On Friday, enjoy a buffet breakfast at the resort’s restaurant before jumping back in for the final day of the workshop

AU Retreat Hamilton Island

Unpack the advanced strategies that add those extra margin percentages that travel straight to your bottom line. Walk away from 

the workshop with a complete and detailed strategic plan that will guide your building company to success. 

We’ll finish off the week with a very special dinner on the marina. Blow off some steam and celebrate all that you’ve achieved over the two-day workshop with your fellow professional builders while enjoying a delicious three-course dinner and drinks. 

On Saturday morning, enjoy a final buffet breakfast and catch up with your new circle of professional builders before catching the lunchtime flight off the island as you wonder how work got to be so much fun.

Alternatively, you can extend your stay on the island and enjoy a well deserved holiday.

We have spent months organising almost everything for this amazing retreat, we just ask you to get yourself to the island! 

Please arrange your own flights to and from the island.

It is recommended to do this as soon as you secure your place at the retreat to avoid missing out. The island is a high-demand destination for holiday-goers with a very limited number of flights each day. 

Hamilton Island is an amazing family holiday destination so if you would like to bring your children along for the trip, you’re most welcome. 

However, please keep in mind that you will need to arrange for caretakers or babysitters to step in and help whilst you’re attending APB events. No children are allowed at any APB events. (this includes meals)

You may be able to arrange caretakers through the hotel.

Due to airline and hotel requirements, all guests attending the retreat must be fully vaccinated. Prior to securing a spot on the retreat, you will be asked for proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status.

The team at APB thanks you for your co-operation in navigating the new normal! 

Absolutely, you’ll just need to organise it with the hotel as soon as possible! Additional nights at the hotel are subject to availability so we recommend you organise it ASAP after booking your ticket. Once you’ve secured your ticket, we’ll send you the details on how to extend your stay.

We know that it’s an uncertain time right now so we want to make the decision to attend the Hamilton Island Retreat as easy as possible for you.
