WE'RE EXCITED TO HOST THE FIRST-EVER INSTITUTE SUMMIT IN SUNNY ST. PETE FLORIDA
Introducing Keynote Speaker
Motivational Speaker & Author
Motivational speaker and author Kevin Brown is passionate about helping people and organizations embrace a simple philosophy that separates world-class organizations and
high-performance people from everybody else - he calls it The HERO Effect®.
Through his books and presentations, Kevin entertains, inspires, and challenges people to show up every day and make a positive difference at work and in life!
The Institute for Automotive Business Excellence has always been about improving the lives and businesses of auto shop owners to uplift the industry. After merging with RLO Training in 2021, that mission only became stronger with the creation of the GEAR Performance Groups (GPG).
We are excited to hold the first Institute Summit to celebrate the successes our GPG Members have seen over the past year. And to provide training and community support that everyone in the industry can benefit from.
Whether you're thinking about a Group or just hungry for more knowledge, The Institute Summit is where you'll learn how to take your shop to the top.
Join us for training with top-notch speakers, networking with Group members and industry professionals, and - of course - a ton of fun and good food. Your ticket gets you access to the conference as well as discounted rates for the hotel, making it the perfect trip to bring your family along to soak up some sun!
