Showpower Seminars Designed to Help Shops During Tough Economic Times

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Although some shop operators may consider cutting back on training during an economic downturn, many others realize that it’s even more important to stay on the cutting edge of business-management practices and technical advancements to prosper.

Showpower, the Transmission/Undercar Expo, has designed a seminar program to help make shops more knowledgeable and more profitable, according to Showpower Coordinator Michelle Dickemann. Showpower is scheduled March 26-28 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.

“Management seminars start opening day with Automotive Management Institute-accredited courses conducted by Matthew Winslow of the Automotive Training Institute,” she said. Five Keys to Making the Money You Want in a Rocky Economy and How to Use the Five Keys to Get Results Now! are ‘must-attend’ sessions, she said.

Two more AMI-accredited courses follow on Friday, March 27. Craig & Deborah Van Batenburg, AAMs, provide a two-part session, Tools for Understanding Men and Women in the Automotive Workplace. On Saturday, March 28, shop operators will hear from three more industry experts: Robert Spitz covers Increasing Profitability through Organization, Terry Greenhut provides a Sales Tune-Up, and Tom Langer discusses Motivating Good Workers & Getting Rid of Deadwood.

Technical seminars include some back-to-the-basics classes such as Performing a Brake Job by the Numbers, Pipe Bending Like a Pro and Building Your Performance Business. In-depth courses include Answering those Tough Brake, Alignment & Chassis Questions; the Transmission R&R Workshop by Jasper Engines & Transmissions; Diagnosing Noise, Vibration and Harshness Concerns; Profiting from Hybrids; and Up Front and Close Up with the ZF 6HP26 transmission.
