The Refresh Friday broadcast series is proving to be a huge hit here on DealerRefresh. With more than 20 live episodes broadcast since May 2017, we look forward to even greater success in 2018 as we strive to broadcast a live event practically every Friday moving forward. Thank you to everyone that has participated and or supported this initiative by tuning in and sharing with friends.

New Show Format

The 30-minute show format has been a challenge for us and although we are committed to keeping each Refresh Friday broadcast short and sweet, we do intend to extend the length a bit to about 40 minutes per broadcast.

2018 takes on a different tune with host and founder @Jeff Kershner AND with the return of @Alex Snyder, and a slew of special guests. SO be on the lookout!!

RSVP on Facebook

Up until now, we had created an FB Event to RSVP for each individual event. With Facebook now supporting recurring events, we have set up a Recurring FB Event where everyone can RSVP for the ongoing series. Of course, there is no obligation to attend when you RSVP that you will, but we encourage everyone interested in the show your support on the FB Event.

Tune in Here for Updates

This thread is being created as the official discussion thread where we will announce each upcoming event and where we will post updates that include the original FB Live recording of each event. Be sure you're following this thread to keep yourself in the loop. You may also view all previously recorded broadcasts by looking for the Refresh Fridays Playlists in the Video Section of the DealerRefresh Facebook Page.

Refresh Friday 3/9/18 - Ryan Everson and Steve Stauning have fun with Jeff and myself

We can call this video "finding some control in a shit show." Come in for some laughs as is always the case when @Stauning shows up. @reverson proves to be the wisest of this crew.
