DALLAS — Organizers of the annual Industry Summit announced renowned leadership trainer Dave Anderson will deliver the evening keynote address at this year’s event, which will be held Sept. 11–14, 2017, at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas, in partnership with The Best Training Day Ever (BTDE).

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Dave Anderson, amongst additional BTDE trainers, at a VIP dealer- and manager-only dinner event, hosted by the Best Training Day Ever, on Monday, Sept. 11.

“Dave Anderson is an elite, one-of-a-kind trainer and coach. He is a powerful speaker whose message resonates with anyone looking to learn and get better,” said Larry Dorfman, chairman and CEO of APCO/EasyCare. “I can tell you without hesitation that he has made a significantly positive impact on me personally and on EasyCare’s success over the last five years. He will definitely deliver a message that inspires and motivates attendees at the close of our first day.”

Anderson will present “How to Become a Game Changer in Your Organization” at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Drawing on his personal experience as an automotive retail professional, entrepreneur, trainer, consultant and author, Anderson is expected to address the need for leadership in every organization and how dealers, managers, and sales and F&I professionals can make leaders out of themselves and bring out the leadership qualities of those around them.

“Game changer performance is more about the right mindset — mental toughness — than it is about talent, skills, knowledge or experience,” Anderson said. “In fact, toughness beats talent when talent isn’t tough. I’m excited to share steps for developing the game changer performance mindset that will transform your business and your life to ‘unstoppable’ status.”
