What I Do
a small sampling, really
Having served in EVERY department of the retail automobile business over thirty years, I can safely say, if it needs attention, I can help. I am a Dealer Therapist (Unlicensed). I love studying dealership culture and CSI.
General Managers, Sales Managers, F&I, Sales Professionals, Internet Departments, Parts, and Service. You name it, we teach it. I am warning you, I am unconventional. If you are looking for old-school 'Steps' and 'Hard Close' stuff, I'm not your guy. I can, however, email you a long list of 'old school' trainers that will freshen you up on some 80's style techniques.
Traditional, Digital, Social. We can help unlock the mysteries of where to spend your marketing dollars while giving out-of-the-box ideas to set you apart...way apart. Unconventional warning #2: I hate the status quo. If you are calling on me, chances are your current marketing efforts aren't working. My motto is, "If it ain't broke, change it anyway."
No matter how large or small your event is, I can light up a crowd like nobody's business. Almost all of my thirty plus years in business have either been in the car business or stand up comedy as a performer or writer. Enough said.
See "Speaking". As an after dinner speaker, you can get by with a few jokes and a beer or two. When conducting hands-on workshops that last from one hour to one week, you better have something to say. My workshops are current and informative with an emphasis on original take-home ideas that can be utilized immediately. They are also funny as hell.
When it comes to moderating, you either have it or you don't. Improvisation is my bag. I know a lot of people who think they are moderators, but I can count the great ones on one hand. I am proud to be one of those fingers. (Not that one!)
