    i am a part of and education dept. class discussion group that needs to re-write a course plan .

    each class is about 2 hr. long,and it's held at landscape/turf shows.

    my question is : what would you guys like to see,talk about ,do .... in these classes?

    it's seems like it's the same speaker,same slides,same hand outs and we are out to make a change.

    i need your help

    It seems taht if you listen to the members of your classes during a break you would get your answer.
    Networking at trades conferences is the most valuable class that I ever take. Pick up some of these topics;
    -area specific job costing
    -time saving tricks
    -employee management
    -business organization
    -business operations
    The list goes on as long as you have time to talk the info out of the others attending.

    Do you ever have "overhead recovery" topics and method discussions? Or how about job-estimating for construction VS maintenance. I think job-costing would be good too. :)
