The Rise and Fall of the Disruptors

I’m joined today by Darren Bedford and Andrew Clark and we’ve been looking at what’s happening in the future and asking questions such as:

Where’s the motor trade going?

Used car stock-what’s happening there?

And we’ve got to talking about the disruptors out there.

Who are these disruptors? Are the still “disrupting” or are they on the way out?

And where does that leave the rest of us?

Join us as we pick apart what the motor trade looks like in 2023

About Symco Training:

Symco Training was founded in 2000 by Simon Bowkett and it was his belief that the business had to offer its clients something different. That difference was clear to Simon from his days in the dealership when he experienced many sales trainers who had all the answers, but were unable, unwilling or both to actually show the delegate how they could be implemented. It remains the ethos of the business today. You see, Symco only employ trainers that are committed to delivering not only inspiring and insightful training, but are equally as happy to demonstrate these skills and techniques with real customers in your own showroom. We believe in order for sales training to be effective and in Simon’s words ‘real world’, it needs to be tried and tested in the only place it matters the showroom floor. There is no room for theory when your goals are for your team to sell more cars, hours or parts and retain more profit. In dealerships around the world the focus applied by many of the sales executives is to try and sell a deal. Symco specialise in getting your teams to focus on selling themselves, the product and then supporting this with the deal.
