The Professional Landcare Network’s (PLANET’s) Great Escape event will be held at Atlantis in Paradise Island, Bahamas, Feb. 26-28. Early-bird registration pricing is in effect until Feb. 6.

Great Escape brings together landscape industry company owners and upper-level management for a few days of networking and leadership education from national speakers who focus on corporate development. An added layer to this year’s gathering is PLANET will launch its new brand at the Great Escape.

The opening keynote session will feature Jeff Kaplan, Ph.D., of the J. Alan Group. He will discuss why your network equals your net worth, focusing on the power of human connectedness to drive personal and professional performance.

Other keynote speakers during the week include David Horsager, who will discuss how the world’s most successful people gain and keep the trust of their customers and colleagues; and Frank Bucaro, an ethics expert who is an advocate on the benefits of ethics and values.

With a focus on collaborative learning, attendees will be assigned to a group of noncompeting peers upon registration. Following the educational session each day, the presenter will assign questions relevant to the topic to each group to discuss. After the discussions, the questions and answers will be shared with the entire group. Attendees may earn one CEU per hour of instruction attended—Great Escape education sessions qualify as PLANET Landscape Industry Certified recertification.

Great Escape also includes time for networking during receptions and special events, including a sunset catamaran cruise to benefit PLANET Academic Excellence Foundation and a leadership awards breakfast sponsored by Bartlett Tree Experts.
