PLANET's Great Escape 2015

PLANET, the national trade association that represents more than 100,000 landscape industry professionals, will host their annual Great Escape event at The Atlantis, Paradise Island, The Bahamas, February 26 - 28.

The Professional Landcare Network will hold their Great Escape event at The Atlantis, Paradise Island, The Bahamas, February 26 - 28. This annual event brings together landscape industry company owners and upper-level management for a few days of networking and leadership education from well-known national speakers that bring their "outside-the-box" perspective to corporate development. Each session hour is approved for one PLANET Landscape Industry Certified recertification.

The opening keynote session will feature Dr. Jeff Kaplan of the J. Alan Group. He will discuss why your network equals your net worth, focusing on the power of human connectedness to drive personal and professional performance.

Other keynote speakers during the week include David Horsager, who will discuss how the world's most successful people gain and keep the trust of their customers and colleagues; and Frank Bucaro, an ethics expert who is a leading advocate on the benefits of ethics and values.

With a focus on collaborative learning, attendees will be assigned to a group of non-competing peers upon registration. Following the educational session each day, the presenter will assign questions relevant to the topic to each group to discuss. After the discussions, the questions and answers will be shared with the entire group.

Great Escape also includes time for networking during receptions and special events, including a sunset catamaran cruise to benefit PLANET Academic Excellence Foundation, and a leadership awards breakfast sponsored by Bartlett Tree Experts. PLANET's new brand will also be unveiled at the conference. The conference is sponsored at the Platinum Level by Caterpillar, Inc., at the Gold Level by Bayer, and at the Silver level by JOHN DEERE.
