VIDEO: Era of Uncertainty for Automotive, feat. Cliff Banks

This is a preview of my conversation with DrivingSales Member Cliff Banks that aired live on May 9, 2018. To listen to the complete conversation visit the podcast

For the last 100 or so years, five fundamental aspects of the industry have stayed relatively the same: Product, Manufacturers Distributors/Dealers, Buying Experience, Ownership Experience.

However, all signs point to change, serious change, and disruption. But when, and how? Who will be the winners? Who will be the losers? 

Cliff Banks, from TheBanksReport.com and a well-respected industry veteran and insider, sits down with me for a discussion around the forthcoming Era of Uncertainty, how the franchise dealership model will be affected, and what the real meaning is of the idea of "disruption" in the automotive industry.

Enjoy!
