  • Building your Bench Strength (All)
    Attract, Hire, and Retain employees. A panel of HR experts will present strategies that have been successful at their companies in building their bench strength through attracting qualified employees, hiring the best, and retaining these new hires through career path and development strategies.
  • Evolving Leadership Roles as Companies Grow (Principals and Executives)
    Listen, question, and comment to two owners who have grown their businesses and how this growth impacted their leadership roles. These dealers have grown their businesses from single store operations with $5MM to $10MM in total revenue to multi store operations with $100MM+ in revenue.
  • Roundtable Discussions focused on Departmental Best Practices (All)
    Tables will be set up by Department with an experienced facilitator to lead the discussion on best practices and problem solving in that particular department (Sales, Service, Rental, Parts, Finance). To prepare for these sessions, participants will be asked to submit their current/future challenges related to that department. These challenges will be sent out in advance in order to prepare for impactful discussions.
  • The Journey of the Dealer Principal: Moving Out of the Business (Principals)
    Listen, question, and comment to three principals who have moved out of ownership in three different ways: ESOP, Generational Transfer of Ownership, Merger/Sale
  • Managing the Game Plan Deep into the Organization (All)
    Many business leaders struggle with the fine line of micromanagement. Sports coaches don’t incur that anxiety because their job is prescribing specific behaviors around the winning game plan. This presentation will present leaders with an understanding of the difference between coaching and micromanaging along with specific strategies and action items.
  • Keeping up with Technology and the Value of Data (All)
    What is happening with technology in my industry? How do I protect my data and is there any value in it? Learn from a panel of technology experts on what is on the forefront for your industry.
  • Divine Leadership (All)
    From military strategy, sports, and politics, to philosophy and religion, unique and powerful business strategies can be found everywhere. The study of these various practices and processes can lead to abundant creativity, and stunning ideas for establishing your optimal desired culture and vision at work.  What can we learn from the Greek gods, from Jesus, from Buddha?  How can we apply their principles to our companies?  And why would we want to?  Robin Currie will lead you through some forgotten yet powerful concepts that are sure to elevate your organization to a higher level of employee and customer engagement, as well as assisting you in creating a more meaningful life, both at work and at home.
