Make sure you don’t miss out on this brilliant and informative session, the essential beginning to your 2015 AADA National Dealer Convention
An exclusive, private symposium featuring one of the biggest names in world automotive retailing is the feature of the opening morning of the 2015 AADA National Dealer Convention.
Robert H. Kurnick Jr., president of the world’s second-largest automotive group, Penske Automotive Group, will deliver the keynote speech of the AADA Dealer Symposium, an exclusive event for Australia’s retail automotive dealers.
Mr Kurnick will share his thoughts on the current state of the automotive landscape internationally, elaborate on DJR Team Penske – a powerful new alliance in V8 Supercars – and answer audience questions in a Q & A session at the end of his keynote address.
National Dealer Attitude Survey Results
The Symposium will also feature the release of results of the first-ever National Dealer Attitude Survey, a detailed examination of the current mood of our industry, compiled from the thoughts and feelings of those on the front line – the Dealers themselves.
BDO partners Mark Ward and Randall Bryson will use their extensive automotive industry experience to explain the survey results and interpret the implications for dealership operations. Mark and Randall have a thorough understanding of compliance services, dealership operations and taxation matters, including income tax, FBT and GST.
The Australian retail industry has never before undertaken such a broad survey of Dealers all across Australia. You would not want to miss the results and implications for the future.

Hugely in-demand for his knowledge and experience across all aspects of dealer operations, Dale will address critical indicators through 2017 to help you prepare for the next 2+ years.
