I really enjoyed the seminar in Florida. I have had all types of training over a 35 year full time military technician career; your team presented one of the best! Regarding seminars we invested highly in the education of our soldiers/technicians. Conflict resolution, managing difficult people, maintenance management for success and others were given to supervisors. We brought in Community college training for technicians, on the job, and they received college credit for their training.
I am glad Mesa Wood invested in me and sent me to your Seminar. I honestly experienced the best seminar ever attended. The material, format and presenters made this a unique experience. It is easy to see the passion from all of you during the seminar.
I have reached out to Ed and Todd on some things we need. Had a long discussion with our President on the seminar itself as well as vision. Back in her court now to mull over. Whatever the decision the information I learned is valuable. My first self-assigned task, review/update scopes of work, is in progress. Base documents on hand were good to start with.
Thank you for making the seminar and enjoyable experience.
Dear Shinn Group & BP,
What a privilege it has been for me to know Emma and Chuck Shinn and their affiliates. Their lives, their wisdom, their tender hearts for the needs of this industry, and optimism have been an inspiration beyond anything I can express--so thanks for caring and sharing.
I attended the Art of Purchasing Seminar last week (awesome!). I got more out of that class than any other continuing professional education (CPE) courses I have taken in the past. -Mike Stevens, CPA, Director of Purchasing

I was glad to take part in this (Art of Purchasing) seminar and learn so much that will be helpful both for my work and for our company. Thanks also to Chuck, Ed, Matt, all the Builder Partnerships team, and the trade partner sponsors for your hospitality last week. You provided a good forum for us to meet other builders, get to know one another, and share our successes, challenges, and ideas.
An attendee from Drees Homes shared the following successes after attending the Advanced Purchasing seminar:
Solidified a division deal with (a bath product manufacturer)
Re-negotiated better trim labor cost
Re-negotiated better roofing material cost
I do not believe I would have come out as successful had I not attended your Advanced Purchasing seminar. Thank you
