The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association’s (CIECA) next CIECAST webinar, titled ‘How to Adapt to the Speed of Change in the Collision Industry… Without Getting Crushed’, is scheduled for 30 March 2023 at 11am PT. The one-hour presentation will feature Ryan Taylor, founder of CRM software BodyShop Booster and President of The AMP Bureau.
Taylor has also operated body shops, opening his first at 17 years of age. Through unconventional and creative means, he grew it into an MSO with locations across Canada, successfully exiting in 2014. He is an advisor and coach to thousands of shops, OEMs, and Fortune 500 companies around the globe.
During the live event, Taylor will share three ‘secrets’ of how Fortune 500 companies embrace change: ‘Upstream Thinking’, ‘How To Adapt And Ride The Technology Wave’, and ‘From Fear to Freedom: How The Military Uses Change As Rocket Fuel To Boost Advancement’.
According to Taylor, upstream thinking is a new way to solve some of the biggest challenges. “From staffing to supply chain issues, this problem-solving methodology is a closely guarded secret that many of the most successful companies use,” he said.
HOW TO ADAPT AND RIDE THE TECHNOLOGY WAVE
Taylor said some people can struggle to keep up with the fast-paced evolution of technology, but you don’t need to be left behind. He will share a proven framework that can be used by the industry to adapt to the latest technological advancements and thrive in today’s digital landscape.
FROM FEAR TO FREEDOM: HOW THE MILITARY USES CHANGE AS ROCKET FUEL TO BOOST ADVANCEMENT
According to Taylor, the military operates in a constantly changing and unpredictable environment. As a result, it has developed a culture that embraces change and adaptation.
“By using change as a catalyst for growth and advancement, the military has remained ahead of the curve and maintained its competitive edge,” said Taylor. “This secret approach can be applied to businesses in the collision industry by fostering a culture of innovation and adaptation, and embracing change to drive growth and success.”
A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
All industry segments, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend the webinar. Attendees can earn Automotive Management Institute (AMi) credit toward an industry-recognised professional designation and specialty degree.
