 Asheville, NC – The Mann Group brings Mann University to Interbike

 The Mann Group is excited to announce multiple Mann University sessions at Interbike 2015! Leslie Cunningham, Chief Connections Officer at The Mann Group, says, “We are incredibly excited about sharing the Mann University experience with Interbike attendees. Our expanded curriculum for 2016 promises even stronger retail results for student attendees.”

 Pat Hus, Vice President at Interbike, added, “The partnership with Mann U has been a huge boost for us in terms of attendance. Last year we had a strong turnout even though it was late, so we knew we had something dealers really wanted. This year it has just blown up and we have literally overbooked both sessions. We are figuring out ways to make more room – this is a good problem!”

 Dan Mann, President and Founder of The Mann Group, explains the core successes of Mann University: “Mann University implements ORBT, a foundational strategy used to teach new skills and improve behaviors, resulting in better leaders and higher profits. If you’re working in retail, you need Mann University.”
