    I go to seminars at every SHOW and MEETING I attend around the country. I will admit it was difficult to stay in class at the meeting in the Virgin Islands in 2000 that I went to.

    Just proves ole Mr Stuffy's take on these so called learning seminars.

    Maybe there will be some feedback from the show's "endorsee's" the Florida Ground Transportation Association on the pending suit that will not seek to fight Tampa's State mandated VFH law but enforcement of for the Super Bowl?

    All the sales training and marketing ideas in the world means jack shit with a FGTA, NLA, TLPA supported regulatory boot on the throat restricting market entry, innovation, creativity and business expansion.

    Advertising such with the FGTA Logo on the same page is pure hypocrisy.

    Gunny, If you stick to it, you can take the merchants of malfeasance ! The crooked regulators and the limo establishment had their boot on my throat until I cleaned their clock completely in Federal Court in the mid 1980's. You must make sure that their third century "laws" cease to exist. In the 1980's in New Orleans we referred to our regulatory authority as Beirut on the Bayou and our opinion was that they were so crooked they had to have their pants screwed on in the morning.

    Unlike other transportation industries, screw with one you screw with all doesn't apply. The douchebag regulators & crooked industry lackeys count on one common denominator to apply their evil ways, GREED. This stretches from the local associations straight to the top on the national scene.

    I am really not sure to begin so I will dive in. First of all, I am the educational coordinator of the Limousine Digest Show in Orlando. No one will be posturing or patting anyone on the back. I am facilitating all sessions except for the Industry Summit. I give you maximum effort and I am working very hard on the Orlando program.

    I cannot give you the nitty gritty on my speakers; Marc and Linda Shpilner of Limousine Eighteen in Boston, Mike Dozier and Matt Yorke of Signature Limousine in Nashville, Mark Shrayber of 360limo in Dallas, JC Carey of Coastal Limousine in Ft. Lauderdale, but I think they are very good operators who have much to offer.

    The program is devoted to sales. The presenters are all people I work with and all are running multi-million dollar limousine services that are profitable. The sessions are:

    1. The One Minute Limousine Sales Manager: focusing on closing techniques over the phone.

    2. Creating and Executing a Memorable Brand: We examine what makes a great brand and we critique some pre-selected attendee's brands.

    3. Farming for Dollars: How to find more business from your current clients: We look at 5 strong methods of getting more trips from your current base

    4. Making a Winning Sales Presentation: We show how to make a great sales presentation (me) then we again critique a selected attendee.

    5. Surfing for Cyberdollars: Making more money on the Net: My expert will guide us through a full selling strategy on the net.

    I think this is a VERY good program and certainly worth your time and money. Sincerely, Tom Mazza

    Lets lift the covers & take a peek here. Someone from Philly, Boston & Nashville flying into town to educate southern operators on selling their product in the socialist south. OOps, forgot JC from long time on the road Coastal based in restrictive market entry ala taxicab style, lottery sedan drawing, Broward County home of the Taxi Baron of Florida. At least he's not slated to give a presentation on selling against the competition. Not hard for old dogs to keep on top of the market when there are no young pups nipping at their heels.

    All sales training is good for those who can use it to full potential. Is the training set to be presented in Mickey Land worth the price v. paying a local instructor to come into the shop for one-on-one training in basic sales techniques? Party on.........

    When entry is restricted, the existing companies don't have to work hard..

    To be fair, Broward County does allow out-of-county limos (sedans) to bring in folks & return to bring them back to home county.

    During last months HCPTC meeting the cabbie crying for protection via placing caps on sedans referenced Broward County as one that does such. To make sure that the Commissioners do understand Broward's regulatory I sent them a copy of Broward's VFH ordinance with the preceeding out-of-county provisions highlighted.

    So let me get this straight someone from Philly, Boston, or Nashville could not help someone from Florida make more money or sell more effectively?

    Great premise, I will have to tell my Florida clients and my 35 other clients in 14 other states about it. And in case someone missed the memo, the biggest growth segment of our business is 1) groups and 2)national affiliate work. Our business went beyond "local" about 6 years ago.

    Please attend the Orlando program, we will explain further. And thank you Dean.

    Salesmen, if their lips are moving they're lying.

    Lets get someone on who does not have a economic vested interest in the number of attendees. Until then all I read is bad sales pitches & use of this forum to try a stir up business.

    Regardless, the fact remains that Digest picks one of the most regulatory repressive market areas to hold a conference geared towards southern based motor carriers & sales is supposed to be the draw? How many of the presenters are running vehicles with a dozen permits on the windshield? Number one priority should be movement towards ending regulatory restrictions that stymie new market entry business growth potential & then we worry about sales techniques to reach maximum potential. I do believe such would not be supported by Mr Mazza's protege's though or for that matter, the NLA, TLPA, LCT, Digest, FGTA or any operator heading up the local associations.
