Is your dealership prepared to capitalize on the rapidly changing customer expectations? The world today is drastically different than it was a few months ago. From digital retailing to marketing to customer experience strategies, you must create an organization that can innovate.
Carla Johnson will show you a step by step framework for discovering innovative solutions and implementing them at your store.
Too often, we try to copy the strategies of the Apples, Zappos and Amazons of the world. Just because these strategies work for them, doesn’t mean you can and should deploy them in your dealership. This even happens in our 20 Groups. Carla will explain how to identify the strategies that work for your dealership and teach you how to implement them in a way that delivers sustainable innovation.
Carla Johnson is a world-renowned storyteller, an entertaining speaker, and a prolific author. Over the last two decades, Carla has helped architects and actuaries, executives and volunteers, innovators and visionaries rethink the work that they do and the impact they can have.
Her work with Fortune 500 brands served as the foundation for many of her eight books. Named one of the top 50 women in marketing, one of the top 10 influencers in B2B marketing and consistently a top influencer in content marketing, Carla regularly challenges conventional thinking. Today, she travels the world teaching anyone (and everyone) how to cultivate idea-driven teams that breed unstoppable creativity and game-changing innovation.
