  • You will no longer hesitate to make the educational investment in an employee.
  • All of your employees will be able to take advantage of the educational experience.
  • Even as a small dealer, you will save tens of thousands of dollars over competitive training options and get more educational offerings! We’ve saved you the trouble of doing the math yourself, simply go to our website and look at our competitive comparison at www.strategydevelopment.com/competitivepricing.

Tom Callinan, managing principal of Strategy Development, stated, “We received absolutely stellar feedback on all of our training programs while partnered with BTA. But it could become expensive to take advantage of the depth of our programs and there were some programs we simply could not offer due to similarity to other programs offered by the association.” Continuing, “With sd|University we will offer both an expanded suite of educational opportunities and an investment approach that allows your company’s employees to participate in all of the educational opportunities for a fraction of the individual course expense.”

In addition to the company tuition plan, opening all of the training programs for your company’s employees, sd|University will offer a lower investment for individual participants and a 25% discount for clients of Strategy Development consulting. Finally, for larger dealers SD will offer training at the dealer’s location for a set fee saving these dealers travel expenses for multiple attendees.

Gary Schwartz, consultant at Strategy Development, commented, “In my years in the industry I’ve never seen such a great opportunity for the dealer community to take advantage of educating the entire workforce, from executive through management to front line employees, to ensure the company is well positioned for market share gains, to enter new and profitable revenue streams, and to ensure significant improvements in operating income.”
