Owners' Summit

AOCA Owners' Summit October 15-16 2013

The inaugural Owners' and Leader's Summit, which took place October 15-16 in Phoenix, Arizona, gathered 30 business owners for in-depth workshops on financial management, marketing strategies, human resources, and leadership training.

The two-day event featured three dynamic speakers and was a great success! "Really appreciate the time and effort it took to put together the Summit by AOCA Staff, Board of Directors, Vendors & AOCA Member volunteers. I felt the information provided was excellent and provided immediate value to me and our operations," said Eric Frankenberger, President and Chief Operating Officer of Oil Changers in Pleasanton, CA. Frankenberger went on to add, " It made it very easy for me to justify the expense when I got back to our shops feeling revitalized and full of ideas to run with. Some of the most beneficial time spent was talking 'shop' with other operators before or after the sessions. Some of those conversations you could definitely put into the priceless category.”

David Haney, Owner of Oil & Lube Express in Magnolia, AR, agreed, "The Owners' and Leaders' Summit was great, but the interaction with the other operators was priceless. I have already implemented several simple ideas from the Summit and have seen good results. It would be very difficult to share anything of value when I found value in every part of this summit."
