Agenda

This year’s conference features more than 30 strategy sessions, each focusing on a different aspect of running an auto repair shop. They’ll range from customer service to apprenticeship programs, from maximizing your ROI to investing in new technology, and everything in between. No stone will be left unturned at the 2018 Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference.

Speakers

Learn tangible strategies directly from real shop operators who have achieved real success in this industry. With more than 20 speakers at this year’s Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference, there will be plenty of opportunities to not only learn from them, but also connect with them one-on-one.

Opening keynote: Joe Marconi - How I Did It

Conference keynote: Jeff Butler - Attracting and Retaining Millennials

Networking

Attendees have the opportunity to speak with other shop operators during our carefully crafted cocktail & networking hours. This is also a great time to seek out the speakers and ask them any follow-up questions.

Workshop

On the final day of the conference, three Ratchet+Wrench columnists and renowned industry leaders will lead the “Break Through Your Bottlenecks” workshop. Attendees will learn from three of the industry’s leading operators—Aaron Stokes, Brian Sump and Rissy Sutherland—to help them identify their businesses’ largest obstacles and develop strategies to overcome them.

Other Happenings

In addition to our strategy sessions and workshop, we’ll have more opportunities to kick back and connect with other shop operators. Here are some core events to get you started:

  • Pre-Conference Meet and Greet

  • Kickoff and Awards Party

  • The Big Networking Party

  • Presentation Theater
