As is customary at AADA National Dealer Conventions, delegates were entertained by a crack lineup of some of Australia’s leading entertainers.
Those making the early starts for Wednesday breakfast were regaled by the rollicking raconteur, Sam Kekovich, whose signature mix of dry wit and bombastic delivery had delegates energised and ready to tackle the day.
Wednesday night’s cocktail event featured a talk from Shane Jacobsen, the award-winning actor behind the hit movie ‘Kenny’, as well as countless other television, film and stage roles. The story behind his ‘Long Road to Overnight Success’ (the title of his autobiography) was an inspiring lesson.
The musical comedy of Tripod opened proceedings at breakfast on Thursday, with their unique brand of silliness and sweet harmonies.
Lunch featured another great storyteller, author and columnist, Peter Fitzsimons. The former Wallabies representative told tales from his years of interviewing and writing about some of Australia’s leading political, social and historical figures.
It is this ability to complement the business nature of the Convention with such high quality entertainment that makes the AADA National Dealer Convention the continuing success that it is.
