I have been managing motor dealerships for over 20 years and without doubt, the Used Car Profitability Clinic was one of the most useful and informative events I have attended. The course trainers had a huge depth of experience and knowledge across motor trade markets. It was hugely informative, with practical takeaway advice that will deliver real returns. If you are interested in developing your business and team, I cannot recommend this SIMI Skillnet highly enough.
