NPI kicks off first franchisee workshop of the year in Atlanta, Georgia.

NPI Atlanta WorkshopNational Property Inspections, Inc., parent company of National Property Inspections in the United States and Global Property Inspections in Canada, held its first franchisee workshop of 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month. On March 3rd and 4th, Kimberly Stevens, Marketing Coach for NPI, Inc., and Bob McDonough, NPI franchisee, Atlanta, Georgia, held a two day, intensive marketing and business management workshop for 28 NPI franchisees and spouses. Bob, top franchisee of 2016, shared his knowledge with the group, teaching his favorite tricks of the trade and tactics to his achievements. Kimberly challenged our business owners to get comfortable with public speaking and leadership by incorporating a number of one-on-one and team exercises. “This business takes strong networking skills to be successful. At NPI we challenge our franchisees to step outside their comfort zones to grow not only as business owners, but as confident individuals.” Says Kimberly Stevens. “I make it my mission every day to be here to guide them along their path to greatness.”

“Thank you Bob and Kimberly for putting this workshop on for us.” Said Mark Naquin, NPI franchise owner, Houma, Louisiana. “The material and information you provided was extremely helpful for me. No doubt, the way it was presented was key and helped me with more direction and how to stay on track to become successful in this business. I hope this is something that continues, because the interaction was great and getting to meet other NPI folks who are open to talk and share their stories, recommendations, etc. was an added bonus. I got to experience the family feeling within NPI for sure.”

“We are thrilled so many franchisees participated in our workshop in Atlanta,” said Roland Bates, president of National Property Inspections, Inc. “We believe in growing together, and our family culture is our biggest asset. When our franchisees come together to learn from one another it builds a lasting bond and a stronger company for everyone. We couldn’t ask for a better group to represent NPI.”

In addition to our regional workshops, we are excited to begin creating our agenda for our annual conference in November, where our franchisees will spend a weekend learning, growing, marketing, and bonding with one another in Omaha, NE.

Randy Yates, Training Coordinator and inspection expert for NPI, has earned his pilot’s license and will now be leading a training course on how franchisees can introduce drone use during an inspection. In order to use drones commercially you still need obtain your pilots license, but NPI will give you the training needed to pass the exam successfully.

“I am thrilled that the FAA has released their new regulations so we have the opportunity to fly drones commercially,” Yates said. “As property inspectors we sometimes need to access unsafe areas on roofs or around homes and buildings. With the possibility to use drones on inspections our franchisees will be able to provide more thorough reports with less liability and risk of falling.”

Bloomberg recently interviewed Randy Yates about the changes in drone laws and accessibility. “The sky is going to open up at the end of August for a lot of opportunities,” Yates said. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx agrees, stating, “These aircraft truly have the potential to transform how we fly and they also offer many potential benefits to society.”
