A diverse group of likeminded - not to mention detailing-obsessed - professionals, all with the common goal of pushing their businesses further than ever before - that's exactly what the Auto Finesse Accredited Detailer Network is all about.
Every year we lay on a day at the Academy dedicated solely to the members of our ADN, our tight-knit family of industry associates. There's fun, food, party games… OK, maybe not the party games, but what our Annual General Meeting does do is give our network of certificated professionals from across the length and breadth of the UK an extra chance to meet up, share tips and techniques, and take a little refresher on the ever-growing Auto Finesse product range.
It's actually one of the most important days in our calendar, and it means that we can give unrivalled access to our facilities, cars and products. Starting with providing a vehicle or two for honing product knowledge and techniques, and expanding on everything and anything detailing throughout the day. It's crucial to say that the agenda is led entirely by the ADN team, too. Finding out what we can offer and how we can help is always at the top of our list of priorities… ask and ye shall receive.
What the day also does is gives all members of TeamAF the opportunity to give their social media channels a thorough workout with images that actively promote their businesses. We also lay on a tutorials, helping to brush up on techniques that may only see sporadic use. Development has always been a subject close to our hearts at Auto Finesse, and it's exactly what we're keen to offer any ADN member, be that through the sharing of skills, brand management, or advice on maximising their online presence.
Of course, it doesn't just go one way, either. There's also plenty of time for us to gain important feedback, and to help us develop effective new products in conjunction with the people in the trade, who use our range day in and day out. After all, we've built our name on a collection of top-end products that are simple and easy to use for the home enthusiast, but they still have to stand up to the rigours of the most stringent professional standards, or they simply don't make the cut.
Most of all, our ADN AGM is about collaboration and the team getting stuck in. Members that have the drive to make use of everything we have to offer are those that find that they will benefit the most. We can only do so much on our end of course, as with any aspect of detailing, you'll only get out as much as the effort that you're willing to put in.
