Feb. 28th Webinar - "Rethinking Industry Challenges"

GPA Training, Inc, is hosting a webinar on Feb. 28th, 11AM CST (register here). We invite you to attend, as well as to share with your network--fitting for both auto and truck dealers and OE's. I hope you can all join me as I present.

We will investigate and provide creative, often proven, solutions to the top challenges facing dealers.

Register early as attendance caps at 100. We'll add more meetings, as needed; however, this time slot won't be available once filled.

Topics include:

1) How our dealer-OE set up differs from other industries
- It opens the door for 3rd party competition, including from Amazon
- How to close that door

2) Closing the tech gap; hiring Millennials & iGen (23 years and younger)
- We say, "Have skills for a lifelong career;" they hear, "Prison sentence"

3) Transition from being order takers to hunting and capturing new business

4) Hiring and retaining staff to grow profits and customer relationships
