What happened at Trigard Synergy Convention? Part three.

It's our third week of recapping the 2015 Trigard Dealer Convention in Indianapolis.

After presentations from Creative Director Julia Sullivan, new Manufacturing Manager John Albers and Project Manager Blake Swinford, our big day of continuing education continued with Creative growth strategies and succession planning by Jeff Miller. He continued the message of growth, opportunity and encouragement as he offered creative growth strategies to our dealers. He discussed the importance of breaking out of your daily routine to focus on growth. He emphasized the importance of making time to work on your business, not just in your business. He also talked about an often difficult subject, succession planning. He explained that the time to make a plan is before you need to have one.

We were thrilled to welcome Sarah Fisher to Trigard Convention. She is the first female Indy Car team owner, and the fastest woman to ever qualify for the Indianapolis 500. She talked about her journey building a family business in an otherwise corporate industry. She shared an exciting video and held a lively Q&A session. We've been sharing some of her most quotable quotes on our Facebook page.

"Working together is just as important as working in competition." ~ Sarah Fisher
