landscape-ontarioToronto, Ont. — Landscape Ontario Horticultural Trades Association and LMN have formed a strategic partnership starting this year. The agreement positions LMN as a leading sponsor of the association’s trade shows, magazines and educational initiatives.

The two organizations recently established the Leaders Summit, planned for Feb. 16-17 at Blue Mountain, Ont. The two-day, retreat style event will address challenges facing landscape business owners, and suggest solutions to their problems based on proven systems and processes. Speakers include Mike Lysecki, Jeffrey Scott and Scott Kress; a few topic areas are family-owned business, upselling, profitability assessment and waste elimination.

“We are proud of the new partnership with LMN because our focus and LMN’s focus is identical: members’ success,” said Landscape Ontario executive director Tony DiGiovanni.

Mark Bradley, president and CEO of LMN, said, “My career in the landscape business taught me that professionals need the proper tools to succeed. I can’t imagine a better partner than Landscape Ontario to help get those tools into the right hands.”
