BFS-CHI 2019 SCHEDULE

Join Co-Founders Julian Barnes and Nt Etuk as they take you on a tour of the current state of the fitness industry. Before you dive into the specifics of your business over the course of the day, become familiar with the current landscape.
You’re a rockstar, but you can’t do it alone. Creating a strong, cohesive team is crucial to your studio’s success. We’ll share how top studios recruit, manage, and retain star talent. Leave this session with innovative, easy to implement strategies to keep your team engaged and motivated long-term.
The most successful studio owners have their routines down. They zone in on and quickly address problems while also utilizing and delegating to their teams. But how do you prioritize challenges while juggling clients, instructors, and day to day operations? In this panel, learn what and how to prioritize from top studio owners and managers. After this session, you’ll have the tools to tackle your to-do list and maximize your productivity. Stress less, and get more done. You don’t want to miss this.
Fitness is a people business. Building a sense of belonging is crucial to building your brand. The more a client feels connected to the others in the room, the more likely they are to come back. In this presentation, FitGrid Founder & CEO, Nt Etuk, will discuss how connecting your staff, instructors, and clients impacts your business and why building a strong community is critical to your studio’s success.
Demystify the sales process and set yourself up for long-term growth. In this panel you’ll learn how to identify and manage the most critical KPIs for your business. Industry leaders will share proven methods to improve customer acquisition with coordinated sales and marketing efforts. Eliminate the guesswork with solutions and quantifiable goals tailored to your studio.
Unlimited memberships, class packages, drop-ins - we get it, there are a lot of pricing options. Even with a set model, there may be a more strategic way to price and package your services. Our panelists will teach you how to increase your revenue and determine what’s best for your community without leaving money on the table. You’ll leave with the tools to build a thriving, profitable brand.
Today’s most successful boutique studios are embracing innovative marketing, new technologies, and bold content. Learn how the most creative owners are setting themselves apart and how your studio can do the same. Join the conversation led by Maura Vella, 105F co-founder, with Lise Kuecker, Studio Grow Founder & CEO, and Len Fridman, Wellness Living Founder & CEO.
