The Novus biennial Super Session came to a close Saturday with doses of both enthusiasm and realism. The Saturday morning session began with the enthusiasm—in the form of two presentations by Gary Michaels of Southwestern Consulting, who challenged to group to be more enthusiastic about their work. “Enthusiasm is contagious,” he said, “it makes other people want to help you and makes people better than they are.”
Michaels helped franchisees put that enthusiasm into practice as he led the group in a rousing foot stomping, chair climbing cheer at the end of the session.
The dose of realism came from Bill Gibbons and Ben Jarrard of Novus who offered the group practical, step-by-step advice for gaining more insurance business. Others speakers included Paul Anaya of Mygrant Glass, Tim Glover of PGW, Tom Reid of Safelite Solutions and Debra Levy, representing the Auto Glass Safety Council™.
“We are thrilled that Novus is the first franchisor to become a collective member of AGSC,” said Levy. “This means that it has agreed that every new franchise will be an AGSC member and that is an outstanding effort on their part.”
Novus also presented its “Franchise of the Year” award to Tim and Jamie Kochakian during its anniversary dinner gala, which also celebrated the franchisor’s 42th anniversary.
