Facilitated by experienced HVAC Trainers, you and your peers will discuss the impact these Key Performance Indicators have on your daily operations, address current challenges and examine how adjusting small processes and behaviors can have a huge impact on your overall probability. Lastly, now that you have dissected your business, established your KPI’s and realized the impact they have on your company’s success, you will actually setup these KPI’s to track on a daily, monthly and annual basis.  Leave this class with an established plan and detailed process to facilitate success so you can have the time, money and freedom you deserve!

David Holt
National Comfort Institute, Director National Accounts

David joined NCI in 2011. He tells the story that he was contacted to interview for NCI by Dominick Guarino via a Facebook message. Initially his job was to focus on training contractors how to implement the performance-based processes into their business. Today he is still very active in doing that, but is also responsible for content development for a number of the classes NCI develops and teaches as well as the content for the company’s in-person training events.

David is also an NCI business coach – where he brings his expertise and knowledge in house for contractors who are looking for guidance on how to implement High-Performance into their business.

He has a storied HVAC career including starting his own company, H2 Solutions, which he ultimately sold, starting a coaching and training business called Ultimate Service Systems, and eventually joined a flat-rate pricing company. When that firm relocated to New York, David decided not to move with them and eventually found his way into the NCI family..
