More than 200 Burson Auto Parts store managers go together on the Gold Coast earlier this month for the company’s annual Managers Conference.

This year’s theme was ‘it starts with us’ as Burson Auto Parts looked to focus on personal development and wellbeing among its managers. This year’s conference had a bevy of great guest speakers:

  • Darren Flanagan, an explosives expert who helped during the 2003 Beaconsfield Mining Disaster.
  • Steve Bradbury – Australian Winter Olympics Gold Medallist.
  • Hunter Johnson – founder of Mancave.

Another highlight of the conference was the day three challenge in which teams crafted their own cardboard Formula 1 race cars.

“This conference saw a perfectly balanced business, social and personal wellbeing agenda for our store managers,” Bapcor Trade Executive General Manager Steve Drummy said.
“I am sure that all have gained personal and professional inspiration from each special guest speaker, by networking with other store managers, at our supplier presentations and from our own business development sessions.
“As an employer of choice in the automotive aftermarket industry, these detailed events held in idyllic locations like the Gold Coast, seek to support and reward our store managers for their efforts, while inspiring them to continue their personal and professional growth.
“It was great to spend so much time with our store managers once again.”
