A different kind of conference - carefully curated and thoughtfully designed to improve the business side of your organization.

At Shift 2018, you will have the opportunity to hear from industry veteran, Kathy Ligon, and her powerhouse team on hot topics such as business best practices, financial strategy, and what to use (and lose!) out of today's hard to pinpoint industry trends.

Along with Kathy, you'll hear from two well-known CEOs of national organizations who will discuss their plans to energize their own companies - and how you can implement those strategies for yours! Learn from owners just like you about how they are creatively managing their companies - and from industry “SHIFTERS" who are providing non-traditional services and have created innovative products and services in addition to their childcare companies. Wondering if you should bring your managers? There’s an entire day of breakout content just to meet their needs! 

These, and other industry powerhouses, will roll up their sleeves, answer the tough questions, EMPOWER, EDUCATE, and INSPIRE you!
