Session #3

Change the Game

An open discussion on the “state of the industry” and averting the “race to the bottom”. The environmental industry has never seen more competition, more pressure on pricing and more need for professionalism than right now!

The pressure is coming from “micro-competitors”, other industries and a lack of regulatory oversight; please join Peter Ferrante as he delves deeper into the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats that our industry is faced with and how we can avoid winning the “race to the bottom”.

Presenter: Peter Ferrante, Ferro Environmental
