5 Quotes from 5 Speakers You Don’t Want to Miss at NADA100

Next week will be the equivalent of the Oscars for those of you in the Auto Industry — the annual NADA Conference in New Orleans! They’re celebrating their 100th year this year, and have a schedule packed with workshops and an expo hall full of well-suited vendors to satisfy all of your auto needs. Unlike the Oscars, you won’t find any teary-eyed speeches here, but there’ll be hundreds of speaking sessions that will inform, educate, and inspire you to be a faster, better, more productive version of yourself in 2017.

To help you decide on which workshops are worth your time, we’ve made a short list of some of the great thinkers who will be presenting:

Number 1:

 —Jim Flint, Founder at True Blue Media Group / Local Search Group

Number 2: 

“Stories form the backbone of your business, and best of all, they are unique to you. You offer a wide range of products, services, and capabilities; and by weaving experiences together into a brand story, you create relationships with customers and earn their trust. Rather than simply selling, you are building a brand presence and connecting with customers.”

  —Joey Little, Director of Social and Digital Engagement at Auto Alert

Number 3: 

Nearly 65% of dealership personnel rank service retention as a No.1 priority, according to Xtime research. However, most miss the connection between experience and retention. That’s a costly mistake, as the industry’s 51% retention rate shows in an R.L. Polk Loyalty Study.”

Number Four:

People will willingly pay lots of money for a process that either speeds things up or slows things down. Although many people want things and processes that speed things up, just as many are fighting brain drain because of all the speed and want to slow things down. Change your process with your customers in mind, sell your unique advantage and experience to the customer and they will pay for the process.”


                                                                                     —Mark Tewart, President of Tewart Enterprises Inc.
