On October 22, 2013 I was a motivational speaker for the Alberta Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association.
60 Recreation vehicle dealers owners, managers and technicians attended the event. Recreation vehicles in alberta are in high demand. The life cycle for a recreation vehicle is about 5 years. After this, many owners trade them in and upgrade to a different model. Many young families are purchasing recreation vehicles as it is a great way for them to enjoy being outdoors together as a family.
These business owners are selling lifestyle, family memories and fun. Most recreation vehicle dealers in canada are family owned businesses and are often passed down through the generations.
Some of the challenges these leaders face are generational challenges like work ethic, loyalty and attracting and retaining sales professionals and technicians.
We started the morning with the motivational speech, the Nerve to Serve... Say Hello to Humor & Goodbye to Burnout! We ended the day with the motivational speech, Follow Me I'm Right Behind You... How to Lead and Influence Others.
