Did you miss our Executive Retreat in Nashville last year? Then you won’t want to wait to book your trip to N’awlins because there are just 85 spots remaining! Our event, scheduled for May 1-3 at the JW Marriott on Canal in the heart of New Orleans, falls right after the final weekend of the internationally renowned Jazz Fest, so extend it a few extra days to make it a true working vacation. We’re limited to only 200 operators, so what the heck are you waiting for?!

We’ve been telling you about all of the awesome things we have planned for attendees—and trust us, there are plenty of exciting one-of-a-kind day and evening activities for an unforgettable experience. We’ve saved the best for last: our education! It wouldn’t be a Chauffeur Driven event without an incredible and timely lineup of educational sessions.

On Monday, we launch our program with “Brand Harmony: Ensuring Your Message Strikes the Right Chord,” which will guide you in identifying, embracing, and aligning your brand with your overall sales and business development strategy. Speaker Steve Yastrow, founder of marketing firm Yastrow and Company, has a passion for creating revolutionary sales and marketing systems that yield major profit breakthroughs. He also has an understanding of the hospitality industry through his former position at Hyatt Hotels & Resorts.

After a group breakfast on Tuesday, we immediately kick off the day with “Priced for Profit: How to Calculate and Determine if a Vehicle, Run or Even a Client Is Making You Money.” This session will help you identify what services and customers are profitable by weighing their financial pros and cons. You’ll be able to determine what—and who—is either filling your coffers or decreasing your margins so you can move ahead accordingly. Speakers Mike Campbell of Grace Limousine and Ron Sorci of Professional Consulting Resources will share their knowledge and know-how from decades of industry experience in running their own businesses to make sure that you are maximizing your company’s potential.

Kristen Carroll—who is also co-chair of our education committee and helped to create this entire program—and Christina Davis of The LMC Group spearhead our final session, “The Termination Process: How to Protect Your Ass-ets.” This is something that any operator can relate to; Carroll and Davis will give advice on how to make firing an employee a little less painful and to minimize the damage done when severing a professional relationship.
