In our fast-paced consulting environment, we need to be quick-witted and use our strong analytical backgrounds. But what if the challenge is physical – are we up for it?

Buying a vehicle can be stressful.  The sheer number of decisions facing a potential car purchaser can be overwhelming. One choice a buyer must make at the dealership is whether to purchase an extended service contract (or extended warranty).  At the 2017 Pinnacle U conference, we partnered with a student from Illinois State University for a presentation on auto warranties and extended service contracts (ESCs).
