WITH so much going on at CDX16 you may not have been able to catch all of the fantastic interviews and panels taking place on the Car Dealer Live Stage. Fortunately, we recorded them all so you can catch up with the important points from our keynote speakers.
First up, Baize CEO James Baggott was joined on stage by Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders chief executive Mike Hawes. He shared his views on the state of the industry, referring to it as ‘reasonably stable’, but warned that the current Brexit debate was putting it at risk.
Trade Plates TV presenter Rebecca Chaplin then discussed how to make the most from your website and Google presence with Google’s own industry lead generation manager, Scott Sinclair. Later in the day, our hosts were joined by Twitter’s Lucy McHenry and Facebook’s Brad Little, completing the social media trio, who also shared some fascinating insights into selling products using their platforms and how to make the most of the services.
