Personal Peace Expert Jack Manilla to Deliver Keynote for Wise Counsel Boot Camp
Entrepreneur will share lessons for listeners in “From Salt Water to Holy Water - Surviving the Super Storms of Life”
By: Portofino Pools
Manilla will discuss how he survived a “super storm” that left him destitute and directionless.
Financially shipwrecked and set adrift, Manilla was rescued, transformed and enlightened by the Lord, during an 18-month stay in “The Pink House,” a cracker bungalow in a Florida orange grove. Only upon surrendering control of his life to God and developing new habits did he gain personal fulfillment and professional success.
Manilla eventually moved to Jacksonville, Fla., where he founded Portofino Pools, the leading post-build full-service provider for commercial and residential pools in Florida. A licensed contractor, international consultant, trainer and instructional designer, he now serves on numerous community, church and professional boards.
Manilla balances strong outward looking entrepreneurial talents with administration skills, integrating spiritual values and Biblical principles into his business and everyday day life. He is a highly self-motivated strategic executive with a unique combination of technical competence and understanding of organizational clarity.
Prior to founding Portofino Pools and Portofino University, Manilla rapidly grew two Fortune 500 companies (increasing annual revenue by more than $100 million for each) and three mid-size businesses (increasing annual revenue by more than $50 million for each).
He is currently the chair-elect of the board of directors for the national Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, whose members have more than 100,000 employees throughout the US.
As a keynote presenter at Wise Counsel Boot Camp, he will speak about how God has directed his personal life and business direction, helping him to overcome financial and personal crises.
