2018DLA AutomotiveTRAININGSOLUTIONS Comprehensive Training. Proven Results.

WHO WE ARE David Lewis & Associates (DLA) has been training Dealers, General Managers, Service Managers, Sales Managers, F&I Managers, Salespeople and Service Advisors on the “Art of Inspirational Selling.” For more than 30 years, our unique ideas have helped thousands of dealerships nationwide achieve their sales and management goals. As an F&I Training company in the 1980s, DLA created the initial concept for presenting F&I products with presentation flip charts, which later developed into what is now known as “Menu Selling.” In the 1990s, DLA created the concept of “Inspirational Selling” based on the philosophy of a more customer- friendly dealership environment. The program has evolved over the years to keep up with the changing times and today’s technology, but the idea behind “Inspirational Selling” remains the same: provide a positive selling experience for customers and dealerships alike. In 2007, David wrote his first book based on his sales concepts titled Secrets of Inspirational Selling, which quickly became a must-read book for the automotive industry. Since then, David has written four more books; Common Mistakes Automotive Salespeople Make, The Leadership Factor, Understanding Your Customer, and Winners vs. Losers. David Lewis & Associates is headquartered in Melbourne, Florida with DLA Training Centers located in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and NY/NJ Metro. All DLA Trainers are DLA Certified and are recognized experts in the industry.2 David Lewis & Associates

This course will now be mandatory for all of our F&I Managers.” Sandy Adams, Finance Director, Mike Piazza Honda “I have enjoyed myself this week!
