“We held our first Cremation Strategies Conference last year, and our experts did not disappoint!” said Thomas Parmalee, coordinator of the conference. “This year, attendees will learn everything from how to protect themselves from litigation to capitalizing on new revenue opportunities when helping cremation families.”

You’ll walk away from the conference knowing:

  • Strategies to price cremation to boost market share and boost profits.
  • Steps to enforce proper procedures that help you avoid lawsuits.
  • Ways to effectively and efficiently market your business.
  • Tips on handling price shoppers on the phone and in person.
  • Insights on pet cremation, alkaline hydrolysis and more.

These experts will share proven strategies to boost business operations when serving families that choose cremation:

Poul Lemasters, a licensed funeral director, lawyer and owner of Lemasters Consulting, delivers guidance on how to start out on the right path when serving families who choose cremation. Before you can even think about growing market share, you need to protect the business you’ve already built by following procedures that keep you out of trouble.
