Houston 2014 training IMG_4063The Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) held its first Training for Success and Growth seminar earlier this month in Houston, and the event was met with a resounding applause.

Featuring presentations by Nancy Friedman, “The Telephone Doctor” and Jim Pancero, the seminar gave each attendee something they could take back to their businesses and implement immediately, says CVSN Executive Director Angelo Volpe.

Attendee response was equally strong.

“Our guys are really pumped and have utilized their experience this week. I heard from both on several different situations where they used their training,” says John Minor, executive vice president and COO at Midwest Wheel.

“When I talk about Jim, all I can say is wow,” adds Todd Scheitler, territory manager at Midwest Wheel. “He has so much great sales information it is amazing. Being proactive instead of reactive, selling against low price, low profit. Just a couple of the many topics covered.
