Verde spoke at the event, which featured five of the industry’s leading performance strategists at the one-day event designed to help automotive retailers increase profit and productivity in every area of their dealerships. The event was sponsored by Covideo by EasyCare, NCM & Associates and Shell Lubricants.
“The event was a great format for all of us,” said Verde, the company’s president. “The dealers and managers who attended were committed to growing their dealerships, and they came specifically to learn more about training their staff.”
“We’re excited to help Patrick boost his dealership to the next level of sales and profit,” Verde continued, who is known for having trained the highest achievers in the automotive business since 1985.
