"What a great experience! I have been doing this for over 15 years and I really cannot believe how much my wife and I learned and took away from Jerry. He really does have great ideas with unbiased opinions, which to me is very important – no sales pitches here. Also, hearing how some things work and some don’t from others in the industry from all over the United States is invaluable. My wife and I had a game plan of what we wanted to change or make better when we left - we have checked everything off that list and have seen a return over and over. We can not wait to see what we take away from The 2nd Annual Lighting Summit in 2015!"
- Brandon Kuehler, Light It Right
"After attending The Lighting Summit in January of 2014, I knew immediately that this was the best experience that I could have to grow my business. The background and experience that Jerry McKay and his team at McKay shared regarding business development is first rate.
Business owners from around the country with extensive backgrounds in the lighting industry and who are serious about learning and sharing what can help take their lighting businesses to the next level. If true "business development" and understanding of how to better operate at a high level is your interest then there is no place better to be.
I attribute our record growth and ability to manage this growth in 2014 to our attendance at The Lighting Summit. After 12 years in the lighting industry, I can say that attending The Lighting Summit has been the single best business decision I have ever made. I would encourage anyone who is serious about becoming a leader in this industry to be in attendance and learn from the best in the industry. Looking very forward to this next year’s conference! "
- Keith Rosser, Landscape Lighting Pro of Utah
"The Lighting Summit was just great. I thoroughly enjoyed getting together with other successful lighting companies and learning the many ways that we can improve our businesses . There was an abundance of great ideas and concepts on business building and marketing presented. I'm already busy implementing them into my company. There certainly will be an ROI on the money I spent on attending. I'll be back again next year. A big thanks to everyone at McKay Landscape Lighting"

"Wow is all I can say. This was the best conference I have attended and again thanks to you and your team for making me a part of it. I felt welcome from the beginning even though my experience in the industry is close to zero. I think this event has cut a couple of years off the learning curve."
- Don Powell, Dusk to Dawn Stl
"I just wanted to let you know how invigorating your summit was. My hat is off to you and your crew for putting on a fine program that offered a great deal of pertinent information as well as a platform that facilitated networking and sharing among attendees. I typically warn my clients to be careful: that landscape lighting is addictive. I could put your summit in the same category."
- John Garner, Southern Lights of Raleigh. Inc.
"This was my second year attending the summit. I got even more out of this year's summit than I did last year, which was also good. Jerry and his team are great, and I highly recommend what they offer. "
- Mike Potucek, Artistic Outdoor Lighting
"I have participated in a number of seminars, expos, and study groups. Leaders in our industry today must constantly be pushing the envelope as our customers demand it. Education, knowledge, resources, connections, mentors, sounding boards, systems, methods, marketing, production, direction are all part of what enable us to meet and exceed expectations.
With that said, The Lighting Summit of 2014 brought all of these together in an action packed , no nonsense, professional, energy filled capsule. Jerry and his team put together, in a few days what a number of larger seminars couldn't begin to accomplish.
The Lighting Summit is a study group of non competing companies across the country seeking to be the best at what they do. I only scratched the surface of what I believe McKay brings to the table and is so generous in and capable of sharing with others. If you want to be the best, attend the Summit; I hope to see you in 2015!"
