Nick Seidel, GenNext HD Mentorship Chair

As summer has begun, GenNext is now in the planning process for the 2018 Distributor Training Expo (DTE). With such a success and large interest from the industry from this past April’s DTE, we have confirmed that we will be growing our distributor attendees to 225 participants for the 2018 event.  We are also hoping to add six more suppliers to the training weekend.  Much more information to come as the planning process continues.

GenNext will also continue to host a speed mentoring session at this year’s VIPAR Heavy Duty Annual Business Conference in October in Orlando. This makes the third Speed Mentoring event GenNext has hosted. We are excited to have the opportunity to provide a value offering side by side with VIPAR Heavy Duty.

In June, GenNext hosted the first of a two-part webinar series presented by Dirk Beveridge that focused on the innovative distributor mindset. During the webinar, Beveridge described what he believes are eight mindsets necessary for innovation in distribution, and how aftermarket employees, not companies, can cultivate those mindsets to thrive.

Following up on the success of this webinar will be part two of the series. The second webinar will focus on ‘How to Create Relevancy in the Age of Disruption. This webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017. Registration information will be available soon.
