Vancouver, BC – LGM Financial Services Inc. (LGM), one of Canada’s leading Finance and Insurance (F&I) providers, announces that they have partnered with Big Think+, the world’s largest archive of video lessons that teach essential 21st century skills from the world’s top minds, to enhance their suite of training for dealers. As part of LGM’s already robust training offer, which is touted to be among the best in the industry, dealers will now receive access to modern courses from Big Think’s library, including relevant lessons like Selling with Insight, Emotional Intelligence, and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. LGM recognizes the business value of soft skills training and is the first F&I provider in the Canadian automotive sector to partner with Big Think+.

LGM’s suite of dealer training is different from any of their competitors. They offer a ‘Women’s Corner’ with lessons curated specifically for women’s learning and development. Big Think’s video lessons are also designed in a convenient and flexible way, as all their courses are online and take less than 35 minutes to complete. In addition, they are taught by prominent speakers, including: Elon Musk (Founder/CEO of SpaceX and CEO/Product Architect at Tesla), Michelle Thaller (Astronomer and Assistant Director at NASA), Shane Battier (Former NBA player), and Chris Voss (Former FBI Negotiator and Founder/CEO of the Black Swan Group Ltd).

“Big Think+ is disrupting the traditional market of bland and generic training content,” says Meghan Phillips, Head of Partnerships at Big Think+. “We’re happy to be partnering with LGM Financial to offer digital learning content that allows LGM customers to learn from the biggest thinkers of today.”

For dealership staff, LGM’s training represents an opportunity to become more well-rounded individuals and to grow and succeed in both their personal and professional lives. Whether employees are looking to increase their overall sales performance, enhance the consumer experience, gain theoretical knowledge, or fine tune their specific skill set, LGM’s training delivers. Dealerships also benefit from LGM’s training by attracting, developing, and retaining top talent at all levels of the organization.

“With this partnership, we are excited to bring a variety of lessons that have an even greater emphasis on consumer experience, well-being, and personal growth” says Nathalie Abdallah, Vice President of Dealer Training at LGM. “Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had over 6,000 course completions, which tells us that there is an appetite for learning now more than ever.”
