Who Is This For

It’s hard to lead new ideas when you’re putting out fires on projects that are already creeping past deadlines. Add in hours spent in meetings and on emails and your day is gone in a flash.

The only way to break out of the cycle of sacrificing innovation for predictability is to come up for air and look beyond day-to-day demands.

One thing is certain—change is long overdue.

What You'll Leave With

After Touchplan LIVE, you’ll be equipped to take on your daily grind with a fresh perspective and the confidence to prioritize improvement and progress in the face of obstacles.

Join us for a construction event like no other to make the change happen, now.
