Brock Shop founder Joe Argiro joins Bob Ansett for VASA AGM event

JOE Argiro, founder of The Brock Shop, will address members at VASA’s SightGlass Training Day and Annual General Meeting on Saturday June 4th, 2016, as part of an unmissable all-day event of top-quality training followed by an evening function where Australian business legend Bob Ansett will deliver a keynote speech.

Everything, including the pig-on-a-spit style BBQ catering, will be hosted at VASA headquarters in Mark Mitchell’s SuperTest facility, which is now undergoing the final stages of a major expansion project that promises to make it an even more impressive venue than ever.

In addition to Joe Argiro and Bob Ansett, air-conditioning guru Grant Hand and OEM-approved diagnostics wizard Peter Trees are locked in to impress, inform and inspire attendees with high-quality training.

VASA is working hard to make this must-see event as affordable as possible with the aim of attracting a high number of delegates and create a networking opportunity to rival VASA’s famous Wire & Gas convention.
Non-members will be welcome to attend all sessions except the members-only AGM formalities.
