This year’s theme is Vision in Action. We are going to focus on helping our Owners and Sales Reps first realize their vision of success and then put an actionable plan in place with proven business development resources to help them achieve their dreams in 2017 and beyond.”

New York Times best-selling author of the Success Principles, Jack Canfield, will be sharing a motivational message for Proforma Owners and Sales Reps outlining his proven principles and best practices for building confidence, tackling daily challenges and living with passion. He will join Proforma Owners and Sales Reps again in July at the Proforma Annual Convention & Family Reunion as the keynote speaker. 

For the second consecutive year, Proforma will also hold Energize Summits in conjunction with four Planning Retreat locations. These invitation-only events, exclusively for Proforma Owners and Sales Reps with $500,000 in annual sales and up, provide a unique opportunity for attendees to meet privately with Proforma’s Supplier Partners to strategically focus on specific client projects, develop strong partnerships and secure more lucrative business opportunities in the year ahead. 

“Not only do Proforma’s Supplier Partners give our Owners and Sales Reps a distinct advantage in the marketplace with the best pricing, products and services, but they also engage in the most dedicated one-on-one time to build strategic relationships with attendees at Proforma events,” said Michele Cardello, Proforma’s Director of Strategic Partnerships. “No other show gives attendees the time and private space to meet individually with Supplier Partners than Proforma’s Regional Planning Retreats. From our competition-free Vendor Showcase, interactive and collaborative Roundtable events and the Energize Summit confidential meetings, there is no shortage of opportunities for our Owners and Sales Reps to work directly with Suppliers on their clients’ specific needs and develop profitable partnerships.”
