I am seeing a lot of social media activity from automotive professionals being concerned about what to expect from the Driving Sales Executive Summit in Las Vegas next month. This post is a little bit different coming from since usually when I write about conferences I write from experiences. I have been to most automotive industry conferences and for odd reasons have missed each and every DSES event (scheduling conflicts or work related projects). Well this year I adjusted my schedule to go to DSES.
I am beyond excited to attend DSES this year because of the impressive line up of speakers and educational opportunity. I have attended most of the big conferences as a guest and even a speaker so I know quite a bit about the automotive conference. I have noticed that Driving Sales Executive Summit was one of the first conferences to have keynote speakers from other industries. One year they had Gary Vaynerchuk and another year they had Billy Beane as keynote speakers (boy do I regret missing those events).
This year the DSES conference continues to deliver "outside the box" keynote presentations with big names like David Amerland, Frank Cespedes (Harvard Business School Professor), Robert Rose (best selling author) and many others. Additionally, there are some great automotive industry related speakers including Justin Brun and Ben Koller (Dynamic Beacon and Acton Toyota), Joe Chura (Launch Digital Marketing), Shaun Raines (DealerOn), Dennis Galbraith (Dealer eProcess), Joe Orr, Dale Pollack (vAuto), Eric Miltsch, Joe Webb (DealerKnows), Brian Armstrong and many others. Just look at these names and do some reasearch of their successful backgrounds and make the decision for yourself if this conference is worth the trip.
I am personally looking forward to attending and learning from some of the brightest minds in the business. Automotive industry conferences all offer quality education and networking opportunities (speaking from my experience) and this one will be just as great. Generally, after each conference I write a review so follow me on social media and on here to get my review. I look forward to seeing you at the Driving Sales Executive Summit this year. If you are interested in meeting up to discuss strategy and make a new friend in the business please feel free to reach out to me by emailing me at Stan@dealeretraining.com.
