2-Day Virtual Summit Sessions

SESSION 1: Getting BACk to basics

What will it take to be profitable going forward? Towing company owners are asking themselves that question. Has the pandemic provided an opportunity to evaluate all aspects of your business?

 

 

session 3: Cyber Security and Towing

session 2: Maximizing Online Visibility, Ensuring Calls During Uncertain Times

Online Marketing has become an important aspect of the towing business.  Learn more about what to look for in your online marketing program, what you should consider budgeting, expected results and more.

Disaster planning is now a must for towing company management. What you should have in place to best handle any type of disaster, including financial decisions, staffing, document storage and accessibility and more.

What makes people great?

One of our country’s most acclaimed leaders, Benjamin Franklin, invested roughly an hour a day in deliberate learning. For Franklin, his learning time consisted of waking up early to read and write. He established personal goals and tracked his results. In the spirit of today’s book clubs, he created a club for “like-minded aspiring artisans and tradesmen who hoped to improve themselves while they improved their community.”

Hats off to Tow Summit attendees for their spirit of learning and goal of bettering themselves as businessmen and women. Ben Franklin would be proud.

Thank you to our 2019 Summit sponsors who help make this innovative event possible.
