Leading and Growing Your Business with Heart (WasteExpo 2021)

July 22, 2021

Business owners are tasked with, well, everything. How you handle the tasks, the people, the growth and even the mistakes is what sets you apart and ultimately what leads to success. Come hear the journey of two successful owners who each seized opportunity in this industry, established a partnership and friendship and built businesses that thrive and whose employees are thrilled to work for. They’ll cover the roadmap through casual conversation and audience Q&A on topics including:

  • How they chose the waste industry or how it chose them

  • Competition and trust factors in the waste world

  • Taking chances, strengths and weaknesses—lessons learned

  • Company culture, managing staff with heart, career pathing and “being in the room”

  • Building and strengthening partnerships and managing growth

  • And more. After all, there is no thing called “Quitting Time” in the waste industry

Join us for this meaningful and spirited discussion. Whether you directly own a business or are a stakeholder in a company, you will gain heart and tips from this session.

Bruce Bates, President & CEO, Bates Trucking and Trash Removal Inc.
