Delivering the CABDA Keynote
February 4, 2015, I am grateful to have been asked to keynote speak at the inaugural breakfast at the CABDA Expo in Saint Charles (Chicago), IL. (Announcement)
Having recently enjoyed running a very successful bicycle shop for seven years with business partner Aaron Apel, I am looking forward to sharing my takeaways from that experience with hundreds of other retailers, as well as encouraging retailers and suppliers who are there with retail best practices that will help them succeed for years into the future.
Jim Kersten, the show’s organizer, is doing an incredible job of reviving and breathing new life into this expo. The floor is sold out, reflecting the support from the region and the industry that this is the right time of year to take stock of the selling season to come, learn, and make final planning adjustments.
Good food and good conversation is always makes for a good day at work.
