Dave Anderson Plans Agent Summit Return


Sales, management, and leadership expert Dave Anderson will serve as keynote speaker at this year’s Agent Summit, his first appearance since delivering a show-stopping speech at the 2016 event.

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual Agent Summit have announced that Dave Anderson, one of the automotive industry’s most popular speakers, trainers, and management experts, will deliver a keynote address at the 2019 event, which is scheduled for May 19–22 at the Venetian & Palazzo Resort Hotel Casinos in Las Vegas. Anderson will appear courtesy of EasyCare and GWC Warranty.

“Dave’s been instrumental in shifting the mentality of organizations across the globe and we are excited to have him back to share his thoughts and powerful processes with the Agent Summit to talk about how each of us can become ‘Unstoppable,’” said Larry Dorfman, chairman of APCO Holdings, the parent company of EasyCare and GWC Warranty. “Our entire team has improved because of Dave’s programs, and we will be giving out copies of Dave’s book ‘Unstoppable’ to attendees who will also get a chance to have him personally autograph them while he is there.”

Returning attendees will remember Anderson from “Mastering the Art of Execution,” the motivational keynote he delivered at the 2016 event. The founder of LearntoLead “brought the house down” three years ago and will undoubtedly draw a big crowd again this year, according to show chair David Gesualdo.

“Few speakers bring the breadth and depth of experience, combined with an indefatigable stage presence, as Dave Anderson,” said Gesualdo, the publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom magazines. “Thanks to EasyCare and GWC, we will have the opportunity to welcome him to Agent Summit once again.”

Anderson said he enjoyed his first appearance at Agent Summit and was looking forward to the 2019 event.

“I had an outstanding time at the last Summit and I’m honored and excited to return once again and share with attendees new strategies for becoming ‘Unstoppable’!” Anderson said.
