The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) has held the first in a new series of members’ network meetings for parts suppliers, distributors, installers and members of the press.
All 30 places were taken at the exclusive event, held at First Line’s headquarters in Banbury. Feedback was extremely positive with the information provided described as “excellent” by attendees, with additional comments rating the event as “very informative” and “thought provoking”. The opportunity to meet with fellow members was also highly valued.
Guest speaker Adam Petford, who is regarded as one of the UK’s leading trainers on using Linkedin in a sales environment, gave a useful insight into how to create a successful Linked In profile and how best to approach potential business contacts.
Brian Spratt, IAAF chief executive, said: “These member only network meetings are designed to bring the membership close together and deliver information conducive to the running of their aftermarket businesses. This marks the start of many successful future network meetings led by IAAF.”
