Our Corporate Training Center is located at:

6950 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Norcross, Georgia.


Bill and I saw too many contractors spending their hard-earned money on Fake Guru’s and short-lived Motivational Speakers – getting little or no ROI. Even in the restoration industry, there are so many “pseudo-consultants” selling their pre-packaged, cookie-cutter advice that it’s embarrassing!

You’ve all experienced the hype, the rah-rah fist-pumping, motivational Speakers – where the thrill and excitement fizzles after a few days. And, yes, even “Consultants” that are still peddling 1980’s or 90’s strategies – especially sales and marketing schemes. They haven’t stayed with the world of today!

CREST (Bill & I) believe every contractor should be able to get a minimum ten-fold ROI. Business strategies for 2020 must be for NOW and this coming decade. That’s why our coaching is customized for your company, people, culture, and market. You deserve this! CREST does this.
