Jim’s Pool Care team convenes to learn, grow and share

September 27th, 2022

The Jim’s Pool Care national conference was held in tandem with the recent SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show on the Gold Coast.

The conference traditionally aligns with SPLASH! as a way for delegates to enjoy both events during the one week. However, the covid pandemic that forced SPLASH! to be delayed, also caused the Jim’s conference to be postponed.

General manager Brett Blair says it was great to be meet up face to face again, and spend three days working on business development strategies while discovering all the latest product developments.

“Not only that, but we also got to share knowledge on personal development and how we can provide better service to our customers,” he says.

He says that the addition of being able to attend the SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show enabled excellent opportunities for franchisees to see the latest trends in the pool industry, and to explore the latest products and development.

“A big push this season has been pool automation and IOT (the Internet of Things). Plenty of exciting developments around the pool can now be controlled or monitored through real time apps for customers and service technicians.”

Blair says that feedback was very positive about the annual conference. The was a range of guest speakers, suppliers and a well-received keynote from the famous financial commentator Noel Whittaker.

“Noel gave his thoughts on the current economic situation and plenty of advice about just focusing on the small things you can control. Noel is a true believer in always putting some money away each month towards your future and eventually retirement.”

Blair says that while there have been supply issues and regular trade price increases for the past 18 months, the pool industry has grown year on year for the past three years and he truly believes the industry is in great shape for the future.

“It is an exciting time in our history, and we need to monitor our businesses closely, but I feel positive that we have a great season ahead.”
