Australasia’s largest automotive cooperative, Capricorn, is hosting an information filled, one day Collision Repair Conference in Melbourne on Saturday August 10, 2019.
This detailed conference, titled “Futures Collide” will connect collision repairers with a host of industry specialists and suppliers who will share their knowledge relating to current and topical local and international industry issues, technological advancements, product developments and the growth opportunities that exist for repairers and industry stakeholders.
The “Futures Collide” Conference has Mike Anderson as special guest speaker. Anderson is the former owner of United States based Wagonwork Collision Centres and the current owner of CollisionAdvice, a leading industry research, reference and consulting business.
Anderson’s shops held OEM certifications including Audi, VW, Porsche, Nissan GTR and many others. He is also an Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) and he has served on numerous industry advisory committees. He is widely recognised by industry and received an award from the Governor of the State of the Virginia for his contribution to the Virginia State Education System.
Anderson is taking some time off from his in-demand teaching obligations and advisory board responsibilities across North America to play a major role in this Australian Capricorn Collision Repair Conference. He will discuss cutting edge collision repair business management and operational techniques that every delegate is sure to learn something from.
This conference will include input and guidance from our Women in Collision, given their knowledge and involvement in the daily planning, negotiation and interaction with work providers, suppliers and customers.
Located at the Novotel Melbourne in the trendy beachside suburb of St Kilda, the Capricorn Collision Repair Conference is all about the sharing of information, business networking and education. The key focus of this event is to provide support from the industry, for the industry.
A cocktail reception and excellent value corporate accommodation rate ensures that collision repairers enjoy a weekend in Melbourne, while learning more about optimising their business operations. This Capricorn event also welcomes non-Capricorn members to learn more about becoming a part of Australasia’s most successful and rewarding automotive cooperative.
“We look forward to welcoming collision repairers from across the country as well as our New Zealand industry colleagues to the Conference. The rate of change taking place in our industry with technology, materials, techniques and management requires effective business operators to be informed and updated. This one-day event is all about achieving this with minimum business downtime,” said Rob Mildenhall, Capricorn National Panel Manager & Business Development Manager NSW.
