The business of buying and selling cars has always been competitive, but in the age of digital disruption, dealers need to be more innovative and strategic than ever before.
The inaugural Automotive Game Changers Conference on December 3, at the Huntington Hilton in New York, aims to equip dealership owners and managers with the latest skills and strategies to excel in the digital world.
Presented by El Patronn, aka Rudi T of Brooklyn Mitsubishi, the event will bring together speakers from the forefront of the automotive and technology industries to show how these two worlds can make big sense and big sales when they come together.
As owner/partner of Mitsubishi Brooklyn with 15 years industry experience, El Patronn has sold over 36 000 vehicles and earned a reputation in the New York industry as a game changer. Working as a consultant and speaker, he helps to educate dealers on the importance of digital marketing for sales, even starting a successful Youtube channel, the El Patronn Show, where he shares his knowledge and advice.
“A year ago, I went to a seminar that changed my life,” says El Patronn, “Now, I am running my own conference so I can share with others how I experienced a 248% increase in sales where I went from selling less than two hundred cars to almost four hundred in one month. I will be joined by my inner circle of experts and vendors that have gotten behind my massive success and you will be able to learn how we went about creating this incredible transformation.”
Expert speakers will also include Max Zanan, best-selling author of Perfect Dealership: Surviving The Digital Disruption – Amazon’s top-ranked automotive management book, Jason Geras, automotive entrepreneur and creator of the Next Sale app, and digital marketing expert Paul Getter, aka The Internet Marketing NERD.
No other panel of experts is better positioned to help dealers and salespeople in the automotive industry to evolve.
Max Zanan is recognized across the industry as a preeminent voice leading the charge for modernization of the auto retail industry.
“We are witnessing a tectonic shift in automotive retail because of the change in consumer buying habits, online disrupters, and greater focus on convenience, transparency, and customer service,” he says, “To compound this problem most consumers do not like the buying process currently taking place in the showrooms across the country. I will address the necessary steps each department needs to take in order to survive the digital disruption. We will examine the inner workings of Sales, BDC, F&I, HR, IT, and Fixed Ops departments and spell out the best practices for each department.”
Jason Jeras’ innovative Next Sale app has been revolutionizing the industry by streamlining the review process.
“This app was the result of MANY years of car sales experience by myself,” says Jason Geras – Founder of Geras Associates, “I was extremely successful in sales, took my best techniques for success, and built them into this app. This app makes use of the biggest resource you have to advertise and promote your store. Next Sale allows your entire team to utilize the most effective form of advertising to promote your store, and ask for the Next Sale – Referral advertising.”
In just nine short years, Paul Getter become one of the most sought after marketing experts in the world, spending MILLIONS per month online for his clients, who include high profile names like Tai Lopez, Grant Cardone, Les Brown, Anik Singal, Lewis Howes, Tim Storey, Kevin Harrington, Neil Patel, and Bob Proctor.
“The investment of a ticket is less than one sale, but the opportunity to join us at the Automotive Game Changer Conference is priceless,” says El Patronn, “What if in one year everything could change for you too?”

9-year-old genius to graduate university
(CNN) – A child prodigy from Belgium is on course to gain a bachelor’s degree at the tender age of 9.
Laurent Simons is studying electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) — a tough course even for students of an average graduate age.
Described by staff as “simply extraordinary,” Laurent is on course to finish his degree in December.
He then plans to embark on a PhD program in electrical engineering while also studying for a medicine degree, his father told CNN.
His parents, Lydia and Alexander Simons, said they thought Laurent’s grandparents were exaggerating when they said he had a gift, but his teachers soon concurred.
“They noticed something very special about Laurent,” said Lydia.
Laurent was given test after test as teachers tried to work out the extent of his talents. “They told us he is like a sponge,” said Alexander.
While Laurent comes from a family of doctors, his parents have so far not received any explanation as to why their child prodigy is capable of learning so quickly.
But Lydia has her own theory.
“I ate a lot of fish during the pregnancy,” she joked.
The TUE has allowed Laurent to complete his course faster than other students.
“That is not unusual,” said Sjoerd Hulshof, education director of the TUE bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, in a statement.
“Special students that have good reasons for doing so can arrange an adjusted schedule. In much the same way we help students who participate in top sport.”
Hulshof said Laurent is “simply extraordinary” and praised the youngster.
“Laurent is the fastest student we have ever had here,” he said. “Not only is he hyper intelligent but also a very sympathetic boy.”
Laurent told CNN his favorite subject is electrical engineering and he’s also “going to study a bit of medicine.”
His progress has not gone unnoticed and he is already being sought out by prestigious universities around the world, although Laurent’s family wouldn’t be drawn on naming which of them he is considering for his PhD.
“The absorption of information is no problem for Laurent,” said his father.
“I think the focus will be on research and applying the knowledge to discover new things.”
While Laurent is evidently able to learn faster than most, his parents are being careful to let him enjoy himself too.
“We don’t want him to get too serious. He does whatever he likes,” said Alexander. “We need to find a balance between being a child and his talents.”
Laurent said he enjoys playing with his dog Sammy and playing on his phone, like many young people.
However, unlike most 9-year-olds, he has already worked out what he wants to do with his life: develop artificial organs.
In the meantime, Laurent has to finish his bachelor’s degree and choose which academic institution will play host to the next stage in his remarkable journey.
Before that, he plans on taking a vacation to Japan for an undoubtedly well-deserved break.

Gang members slam BMW into rival and his 8-year-old son in Harlem
Two gangbangers aimed their BMW like a missile at a father and his 8-year-old son on a Harlem sidewalk in a horrifying incident captured by video distributed by police Thursday.
The BMW — driven by a man police believe is a member of the Gorilla Stone Bloods Gang — was zeroed in on the father, a rival gang member, said cops.
Around 3:45 p.m. Nov. 6, the boy and his father were walking on W. 112th St. by Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. when the BMW jumped the sidewalk and slammed into them both, said cops.
🚨WANTED for ASSAULT: on 11/6 at approx 3:43 PM in front of 128 West 112th St in Manhattan, a 32 yr old male was walking with his 8 yr old son when a white BMW jumped the curb & hit the father & son. The driver then got out and slashed the father. Call @NYPDTips with any info. pic.twitter.com/cwd79rcM4c

Father and son were both knocked through a gate.
The BMW driver then backed up — and its driver and passenger, also believed to be a gang member, jumped out of the car and ran toward the father and the son.
One of the attackers slashed the father, identified by sources as 32-year-old Brian McIntosh, who’s served prison time for robbery and bail jumping.
McIntosh and his son went to Harlem Hospital. Miraculously, the boy escaped serious harm.
McIntosh was so adamant about refusing to help police catch his attackers that the young boy’s mother had to file a police report alleging he was the victim of a crime, police sources said.
Cops released video of the attack, and ask anyone with information about the suspects to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
