Dave Luehr And Ryan Taylor To Host Fourth Annual Positivity Summit

Dave Luehr of Elite Body Shop Solutions and Ryan Taylor of BodyShop Booster and AMP Bureau will present the fourth Annual Positivity Summit, themed ‘Creating Opportunities from Challenges’, on 24 March 2023 from 10am to 4pm US CDT.

The free online event will address the many challenges facing the body shop industry and how proactive repairers can position themselves for a stronger future.

“Positivity isn’t smiling while ignoring reality,” said Luehr. “Genuine positivity faces challenges, learns from them, and finds the opportunities contained within. As we move forward in a different business landscape, there is much to be gained by sharing what we each have learned for the benefit of others and the industry as a whole.”

Luehr and Taylor will be joined by more than 25 body shop owners and managers, industry leaders, and ‘thought leaders’ from around the world to discuss the industry’s most pressing topics. Attendees will hear how to handle labour shortages, DRPs, the administration burden, ADAS, and other challenges.

Leading body shop operators will also share strategies to create stronger teams, increase income, and take the lead in their markets.

The presenters include:

  • Johnny Kloeckes from CarStar Edmonton
  • Stephen Bozer from Fix Auto Tempe
  • Katie Smith from Ricks Paint and Body
  • Greg Lobsiger from Loren’s Body Shop

Additionally, special guests who serve the industry will share how they are dealing with everyday challenges. The presenters include:

  • Liz Stein from OEC
  • Tom Bissonnette from SAAR
  • Launce Bennett from Lexus / Toyota Collision
  • Mike Jones from Discover Leadership
