Mann University Expands Curriculum Offering With The GEAR Super Trainer Course


May 29, 2014 – Asheville, NC – The Mann Group has announced dates for the first GEAR Super Trainer in Colorado this summer. June 12th and 13th, positioned at the tail end of Grassroots Summit. Founder and President Dan Mann will conduct this two day advanced course work specifically designed for store owners, managers and trainers.

The core benefits which can be applied immediately in the shop environment will be an advanced understanding of GEAR for all selling situations and customer types, learning the most effective method for teaching successful selling behavior, increased powers of observation and evaluation, how to grow and leverage Key Profit Indicators and small group workshops to practice GEAR.

“We really wanted to dig deeper into the GEAR training with retail ownership and management,” said Dan. “We’ve had a lot of requests for this level of training from stores that are committed to exceptional customer service and experience. They realize how it impacts top line sales and business growth. In addition, taking the GEAR Super Trainer course to different cities provides stores a more cost and time effective way to participate and see immediate results.”

The cost for the 2-day GEAR Super Trainer is $1,000.00 and includes course work, course material and lunch on both days.

If you’d like to attend the GEAR Super Trainer course or want to know what cities are on the schedule for future sessions, please contact Leslie Cunningham at 800-936-3049 x 701 or via email .
