Management Success! Spring Convention 2015

Big Fun in The Big Easy

On March 20th of 2015, 246 automotive professionals arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana for the 18th Annual Management Success! three-day Spring Convention, held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in the heart of the French Quarter. Attendees enjoyed networking, panel discussions, workshops, an Awards Presentation, a Riverboat Dinner, and a Masquerade Ball.

Pavaune Pearson, Management Success! Client Services Manager, was enthused: “For the Spring Convention, we found ourselves in New Orleans! This was our highest-attended convention to date with over 240 attendees and 120 auto shops. We had some incredible new workshops on PR innovation and maximizing a shop’s professional image. Topping it off, eight shops were awarded Masters of Shop Management, two shops received Competent Shop Manager, and five shops earned Effective Shop Manager. To say our clients loved it is an understatement!”

With the new Management Success! Advanced Consulting and Training (ACT) program, which puts shops on an accelerated path toward Masters, many more shops are likely to achieve Masters at future conventions. Management Success! also announced its new Advanced Service Writers School, which will enable service writers to master the skills necessary to become true sales professionals.

Mandee Bradshaw, VP of Production, says, “We at Management Success! have talked about offering Advanced Service Writer School for some time. It is the finishing touch to take a good service writer and make him or her great. We are very excited that Advanced Service Writer School has finally come to be.”

Management Success!'s Fall Convention 2015 will be held in October in Glendale, California. For more information, please contact Morgan Scott at
