Each year I make dozens of presentations to senior industry executives and car dealers. Most of these are "forward looking." I peer into my "crystal ball" and forecast changes and industry trends. For this reason, many in the industry refer to me as Canada's automotive "guru" ... and no, I do not sit on top of my desk meditating in the lotus position. What I do is study reams and reams of industry data, consumer surveys and other information in an effort to interpret from the data what the automotive future may hold.
