SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2019 | 8 AM - 5 PM

Stay an extra day & attend a personalized strategy session to

activate what you learned in the 3-day training!

Limited seating available, so don't delay...

Join Dave Luehr & Bruce King for this intimate strategy session and get personalized support in developing an action plan for your shop. Ask questions and get expert advice from the Elite team and other participants in a spirit of learning and community.

The biggest challenge most shop owners face when they return to their shop is their inability to permanently influence their team and implement new processes. Dave Luehr is a master leadership trainer and will help VIP attendees overcome these challenges!

BONUS! Every VIP attendee will be granted a one-hour Elite Mentor group strategy session after the event. You will have access via GoToMeeting to Dave and his team to discuss any obstacles you may be facing with implementation efforts in your shop. Elite strategy sessions like this are valued alone at several hundred dollars, but VIP members have this INCLUDED! 

After a morning of hard, important work, you will be ready to let loose! We will provide all VIP members lunch and then onto the bus for a memorable Tennessee adventure...

No, you won’t be taking to the air, but you will enjoy a special flight in the Jack Daniel’s Hollow. A seasoned storyteller will guide us through Mr. Jack’s distillery and old-time Tennessee whiskey-making process. Then, we'll finish our trip with a memorable stop at the historic Barrel House 1-14. Here, we’ll linger over and sip five of their most popular whiskeys and liqueurs.

Only $545 for personalized support and a custom strategy for your business!
