Master Panels Show Shop Managers They Are Not Alone

Master Panels Show Shop Managers They Are Not Alone

The session helped shop owners realize that help is only one shop owner away. 

Being a shop owner or manager can be a lonely job. It is also a difficult job requiring them to wear many different hats, from marketing to human resources. Interacting with other shop owners in your position can give you a new perspective on daily operations.

At the DRIVE EXPO, The Master Panels on Saturday morning gave shop owners a chance to share new ideas from everything, including parts inventories to pricing strategies. DRIVE Master-certified shops head the panels.

Shop managers and owners heavily attended three one-hour sessions.
