In Sydney, more than 25 attendees were treated to some refreshments prior to the evening commencing, allowing for some great networking to take place. It is worth noting than Noelene Hanks from Emu Plains Smash Repairs was in attendance and she has been in business for more than 48 years!
It goes to show that by attending such industry events you will stay up-to-date with current issues, what the future may hold and of course, stay in business! Tony Naughton pointed out that Noelene was also the first person to register for their upcoming tour to New Zealand in November.
Tony Naughton was the first PPG presenter, with Greg Tunks also presenting at various times during the evening. The presentation was similar to those from last year but updated information on industry consolidation, insurer activity, benchmarking and process improvements, added up to a very informative and educational evening. Ample time was also allowed during the presentation for round table discussions on the many challenges facing the industry.
From all reports, the number of attendees from PPG shops and non-PPG shops in both Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie was also good, with some great ideas shared at each venue.
Anyone attending the Sydney, Coffs Harbour or Port Macquarie presentations would have left with a lot of useful information to assist them in the day-to-day running of their business. Attend a PPG presentation near you in the future – you will not be disappointed!
