AkzoNobel recently hosted the Sikkens Acoat selected Winter Performance Group meeting with 165 attendees representing 112 businesses Feb. 18-20 in Phoenix, Ariz. This meeting is the first of two meetings annually sponsored by AkzoNobel.
A number of shared business practice classes were conducted at the gathering. Classes covered topics such as, Franklin Covey’s “4 Disciplines of Execution,” process centered environments and enhancing team performance in collision repair, as well as Internet-based productivity tools. In addition, seven individual performance groups highlighted the three-day learning and growth forum.
AB Ghosh, general manager of AkzoNobel Vehicle Refinishes Americas in his welcoming comments quoted a recent Wall Street Journal article that said, “Bad news has the ability to paralyze people.” The article went on to say that “the savviest entrepreneurs right now aren’t hunkering down.”
“Your choice to be here, to seek new information and to learn from each other is evidence to the fact that you can be counted among the savviest entrepreneurs of this industry,” Ghosh told attendees.
Membership to the 32-year-old Acoat selected program is open to all users of the AkzoNobel Sikkens brand. For more information, visit www.akzonobelcarrefinishes.net.
