Feedback from some of Dealer Support Live 2018’s speakers:

“Although slightly daunting having to speak to fellow dealers about all the things we were doing at Coast to Coast to encourage sales growth, the experience of speaking at DSL18 was extremely rewarding and one I would absolutely recommend to anyone who loves our industry – and who, perhaps, wants to give a little something back. I had so much great feedback from everyone in the room which made it all worthwhile, and I’m delighted that I’ve able been to contribute something to this great event after attending for the last few years, gleaning information and ideas from the other brilliant speakers from other seminars and bringing it back to my office to put into practice.” Matt Stanley, accounts director at Coast to Coast

“I found speaking at dealers support very enjoyable; I think its important to put yourself our there and share knowledge with others in the industry.” Richard Lockley, sales director at Superstat

"I was a bit apprehensive talking about macro-economic changes and their impact on our industry, as I am not an economist. Also my predictions of the results of Brexit referendum, the subsequent election, Scottish Independence referendum and Trump’s attempts to get in the White House had all turned out wrong. However I was warmly received even though I was pretty much the last speaker near the end of the programme and it had been a full and interesting day. My wife was in the audience and she told me that no-one dozed off, and she was surprised how many had turned out to be there. Plenty of questions showed many had indeed been awake. Dealer Support are to be congratulated on running a very successful event, which was even better than the year before. Thanks for taking a risk on me!” Phil Lawson, former CEO of the BOSS Federation

“Keeping office products top of mind, in the news, up-to-date and sharing best practice is what Dealer Support Live is for me. Having also had the opportunity to present effective marketing to a captive and engaged dealer-focused audience was of huge pleasure, knowing that with a few take-outs and taking a consistent marketing approach can make a sizeable difference to the performance of a business in 2018. In 2019, with more headwinds, marketing matters more than ever and so does the support on offer at Dealer Support. They’re a great team and hosting a seminar was made seamless by their excellent communications, clear and timely information – I just had to turn up and focus on the presenting.” Marc Pinner, marketing director/consultant, QQM Ltd
