five for five

YANG is now accepting applications for the Five for Five session at the 2019 YANG Leadership Conference!

What is the Five for Five session?

Based on last year’s success, the Five for Five session is back! Rapid-Fire style presentations have become a popular way of sharing ideas in a concise, engaging way. Presenters have a limited amount of time and slides available to share an idea, keeping the audience engaged and the overall session moving at a fast, lively pace. For the 2019 YANG Leadership Conference, the Five for Five session will include multiple Five Slides in Five Minutes presentations on topics that matter to young professionals in the auto care industry.
