March 16th to the 19th was Supportworks, our foundation repair supplier’s, first annual convention in Omaha, NE. The convention had over 75 dealers from around the country, with roughly 800 people in attendance altogether. From Baker’s, Owner-Brian Baker, Director of Marketing- Mark Luba, Sales Manager- Orris Johnson, and Tom Eckersley- Corporate Mentor were present representing the company.
The purpose of the convention was to educate and to inspire dealers. The opening ceremony included an inspirational story from speaker John O’Leary. He unfortunately lost his eyesight in a fire explosion when he was a kid, and was strongly expected to die shortly after. He showed the importance of overcoming life’s struggles and to appreciate what you have.
The majority of the convention provided training classes for all departments including Marketing, Sales, Production, and Management. These training seminars are intended to help dealers improve their business practices, and most importantly, the customer’s overall experience. We are proud to say that the convention, and our relationship with Supportworks, provides us with the best products, expertise, and technology.
The last day of convention was an award ceremony for all of the dealers. Baker’s came in 31st out of 75 for top overall dealers in the nation, and 10th overall for installing the most GeoLock wall anchors.
We were very happy to have attended the 1st annual Supportworks Convention, and cannot wait until next years to learn more about what’s going on in the network.
