Hello Pawn Family, Just another quick update on
Ladies and Gentlemen in Pawnland!
I am happy to report that the Pawnshop Consulting Group continues our commitment to delivering up high level materials and events to continue to propel the industry into the future.
We are officially rolling out our highly anticipated Industry Peer Focus Groups. We outlined the concepts for these groups recently at our historical Pawn Symposium held earlier this year over in Naples Florida at the Ritz Carlton.
We are organizing two groups currently and they will be divided up into operators of less than 5 stores or greater than 5 stores initially for our first two groups.
For group I, our event is going to be in Los Angeles this coming year April 23rd – 27th.
Our case study will be King’s Pawn, founded by Sam Shockett in Los Angeles. This particular group promises to be like no other, Mr. Shockett runs one of the single largest operations in the world today, and we will have an opportunity to examine and critique the operation up close and up front while going thru our group formats for our high level industry Focus Groups.
These groups will be limited to no more than 12 members, they can not be competing members in any market and there is a host of other rules and regulations to abide by to be in the Focus Groups themselves. Our bylaws will be posting up soon and we are already taking on sign ups for the groups.
We already have sign ups for Group I and it is coming to a close very quickly!
Here is some info on the Groups:
Pawnshop Consulting Group Inc. is proud to announce that we are launching our much anticipated Pawn Shop Peer Focus Groups. These are the first organized groups at this level in the history of the industry.
What would happen if your business was infused with fresh ideas?
Innovation can be incremental and evolutionary, or radical and revolutionary. For Innovation to occur, it is sometimes necessary for people to change the decisions they make and the processes they use.
The great news is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. There’s a good chance that the business dilemma you’re facing today has already been solved by someone else. Networking and resource sharing are the most practical, economical, and entertaining ways to increase profits and attain personal success.
The Pawnshop Consulting Group is bringing together decades of proven methodologies, systems, and people to further assist in the high line fine tuning of our operational worlds. We will also explore the outer boundaries of what is possible if we put our minds together.
We would like to invite you to become a member of the Pawn Shop industry’s first true focus groups. The Pawn Shop Peer Focus Groups will be comprised exclusively of highly motivated Pawn Shop owners and/or management personnel who will meet twice a year in locations decided on by the group members. To ensure that members get the most out of this experience, groups will be made up of organizations of similar size and operational levels. At the meetings, members will discuss common goals and challenges, share best practices, and participate in financial analysis and benchmarking as well as tour and critique various operations.
Due to the extreme networking and close relationship-building potential of the groups, we must limit their sizes and availability. If you are interested in participating with these groups, we recommend getting on the lists ASAP. Events organized by Pawnshop Consulting Group sell out quickly, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
Group 1 – April 23-27, 2012 – Los Angeles California
Group 2 – May (to be determined) 2012
Are you ready to join the elite members of these innovative groups?
