According to renowned Chinese philosopher and author of the Art of War Sun Tzu, “Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory, tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”  And while it’s been more than 2400 years since he wrote that, we think the saying can still be applied to the retail automotive industry.  That’s why we’ve included a line-up of sales strategy experts to speak at the 2017 CBT Conference and Expo.
