Just about every day of the week, business owners, project managers and other Alair team members are welcome and encouraged to join roundtable training sessions. These include project management academy sessions, software training, leadership, sales trainings, remodeling roundtables, developer, and market partner business strategies, weekly all partner masterminds, and many more. These peer group sessions allow all of us to tap into hundreds of years of combined experience as “iron sharpens iron”. And there is never a concern about sharing the most valuable insider knowledge because nobody is competing, even those of us who share the same markets and even same address.
Quarterly Super-Session Retreats
Every quarter we hold a super-session retreat. This is where many Alair business owners and team members from different regions all over north America come together in an off-site retreat environment and work on developing next generation ideas and strategies. These organized yet highly informal sessions are the epitome of leadership brainstorm events designed to move the organization to the next level at a velocity no other format could provide. We love being around each other, cooking meals together, and just hanging out like good friends do. We often invite potential future Alair owners to these super-session retreats so they can decide for themselves if they want to be part of the unique family culture that is Alair. Fair warning though, if invited, be prepared to be given a task that may include the wearing of an apron because everyone pitches in just like a family at a beach house rental would do.
In the recent past, these sessions have been held in Banff Alberta, Vancouver Island, Savannah, Orlando, Houston, South Carolina, the lake regions of Ontario, southwest Florida, among others. They are usually timed around exciting events such as F1 races, deep water fishing events, golf tournaments and so on.
Held each year in spring/early summer, Alair’s annual conference is the capstone of all our events. Hosted in a different location each year, this event brings together all members of the Alair ownership family, spouses, kids and home office teams. Typically held over 3 days, events include speaker sessions, training events, team activities and whole bunch of fun. The event culminates in our formal award ceremony where even the most casual put on their best formal wear and dance the night away celebrating all that is life at Alair.
