John Gardner, host of “Tech Garage” and “Motorhead Garage” on Velocity Channel, and MAVTV and Chipola College automotive technology instructor, will deliver the keynote address at MACS 2018 Training Event on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2017, at the Caribe Royale Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. MAHLE Service Solutions is the sponsor of the MACS Keynote luncheon, which also features the recognition of the mobile A/C industry pioneers.
Gardner’s speech will discuss automotive education for the coming era. “The integrity of our profession hangs on passing the baton of knowledge and ethics to future generations. In order to fill the global need of technicians, we are called to bridge the gap between aspiring technicians and current successful businesses. We must be intentional about passing on professionalism and ethics on both fronts incorporating attitude, communication, etiquette, diversity, honesty, pride in workmanship and more. The automotive technical workforce is being built by us, today,” he said.
