Key Talking Points

  • 30-year Anniversary for Vision- saw the need for technician/manager training for an entire shop to come. Formed a Management Peer Group in 1992. Needed $10,000 upfront to book a venue, Jerry and Doug used their own money to start the event called ‘Vision 2000′
  • 10 years ago Jerry self-diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Started noticing he was walking slow, customers asked if something was wrong, and his primary doctor didn’t know what was wrong. Noticed when he wrote his name in cursive would get smaller and smaller at the end, took a quiz in a magazine about Parkinson’s. Continues to work in the shop which has helped his mobility. 
  • In the early 1980’s he started dabbling with integrating floppy discs and computers in his shop
  • Over 140 pages of scholarship submissions for Vision
  • Roughly 80% of attendees for Vision KC are from outside the area
  • “Vision is more than training”
