Current Trends for the Pawn Industry Hello to all
Ladies and Gentlemen in Pawnland!
I am happy to report how a number of activities are going for Pawn Shop Consulting Group and our continued plans to further educate and stimulate the Pawn Industry as we know it today.
For starters, we have our next Executive Leadership Camp IV currently underway. This camp like the last 3 will be held in Orlando Florida from July 8th – 10th.
We have selected the Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport location once again for our next upcoming camp.
Pawn Shop Consulting Group is producing the Executive Leadership Camp series in conjunction with John Thedford and David Johns. John was the founding CEO of Value Pawn, one of the most successful multi-unit pawn chains in recent history along with his founding partner David Johns. David was the former Human Resource Director for Cash America, Sears & Roebuck along with Value Pawn and LaFamilia pawn most recently and has a background in Industrial Psychology.
Our camps are designed to fully engage our participants in active feedback and discussion through interactive forums. Each of our presenters creates an environment that is centered on actively engaging our participants.
All boundaries of the business world and specifically the Pawn world are explored at these Leadership Camps, along with our “Book Camp” portion of these events. The Book Reviews at the camps are a series of authors and books that Mr. Thedford and Mr. Johns utilized to build an award winning organization that focused on “Bench Strengths” and the “Human Capital” necessities required to run highly successful organizations.
Each attendee of our book camps participates in chapter summaries and presents their views on how they could apply the knowledge gained into their operational worlds and their lives.
PCG has also teamed up with Mr. Brad Huisken, the founder of IAS Training and is also one of the world’s leading educators on high-level team engagement and productivity. Brad has a variety of high-level educational programs along with his new highly acclaimed “Pawnbroker Certification Program” that he has been sharing with us in our ongoing series. The camps present a wonderful opportunity to interact with one of the industry’s most informed trainers today.
