WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The education program of the Closets Conference & Expo (Closets Con) and Wood Pro Expo Florida (WPE) is taking shape. 

Woodworking Network (WWN) announced that Rich Harshaw, CEO of Level 10 Contractor, will deliver the opening keynote address of the co-located conferences scheduled for June 8, 2021, at the Palm Beach Convention Center. In addition, WWN also revealed that the full-day Closets and WPE conferences will conclude with a trio of facility tours.

Harshaw is the author of Unlocking Unlimited Lead Flow: A Blueprint for Remodeling & Home Services Contractors. He will draw upon his vast experience in the marketing and advertising industry to discuss how to generate more high-quality customer leads that result in sales.

"Rich Harshaw will show them the power of marketing, why they should and how they can. In addition to his opening keynote speech, Rich will lead a workshop during the closets conference focused on vetting leads to take on the most profitable jobs."
