Jim Dance On How Great Companies Became Great at #DSES

 

Dealerships can have all the right tools, the hottest technology, and the easiest selling brand in their market and still fall short.  Why? Because if they don’t have the right people and an effective management team leading those people, they’re starting out with their hands tied behind their back. 

At DrivingSales, we feel passionately that curating the right team members for the job and for the company is paramount to success. Additionally, implementing the processes to help the team be successful is equally important for both the growth of the people and the endeavor of becoming a great organization. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that leadership and management extraordinaire, Jim Dance, will be joining us at the 2012 DrivingSales Executive Summit.  Jim’s training is renowned for helping hundreds of automotive dealerships, dealer groups, auto manufacturers, and industry clients – including General Motors, Chrysler Corp., Penske Automotive Group and NADA – achieve measurably better results.

At the 4th annual DSES, Jim’s keynote will add a much-needed layer of insight to dealers with regards to deeper understanding behind the mechanics of how great companies became great. His focus is all about getting the right people to do great work every day, and using the best processes possible to make that happen.

Jim’s grasp of blending process management with structure and dealership cultural dynamics will enlighten and inform the attendees at DSES. Most importantly, Jim will point out ways for dealers to actually execute these ideas to drive productivity and profitability. As always, the DrivingSales Executive Summit is aimed at inspiring the most progressive dealers and sending them home with actionable business plans geared toward a more profitable operation, and Jim’s keynote will be a huge factor in accomplishing that.

Dance speaks on October 23rd, and joins other DSES high-profile keynotes including Billy Beane of ‘Moneyball’ fame, SEO ‘superstar’ Rand Fishkin, mobile experience expert Luke Wroblewski, and an exclusive presentation from Facebook and Google

Last year's summit was standing room only, and although DSES 2012 will allow for an expanded number of registrants, it is expected to sell out quickly. To register for DSES 2012, and take advantage of early-bird registration through August 15th, visit: http://drivingsalesexecutivesummit.com/registration/.

We look forward to seeing you and the premier automotive event of the year in October at the Bellagio Las Vegas!
