Mr. Medlin has worked with several companies as both a chief operating officer and a consultant, and also owned his own small business. He began to see that operating a successful business was similar to another of his passions, Formula One racing. As he watched and appreciated the skill and efficiency with which a racing team and pit crew do their jobs, he realized a successful growing business needs to operate the same way.

He developed the idea of a Business Pit Stop. Everyone needs to work together while the team monitors performance and adjusts as needed. The fastest car won’t finish the race if it blows an engine. The best team can’t win if the car runs out of fuel. The best driver can’t bring the car home to victory if a wheel flies off in the middle of the race. The best company can’t succeed if it doesn’t operate at a high level.

In this presentation, he’ll share several key elements of what a business needs to do to operate at the highest level and achieve success. The business environment is competitive and challenging, but there are things you can do to make sure you not only stay in the race but win!
