Since the YEN Live Chat series was introduced in 2016, YEN members have had the opportunity to engage directly with and ask questions to 21 young industry leaders in the specialty-equipment market. Through these Live Chats, participants get to hear from young executives in various careers of the automotive aftermarket as they exchanged their stories and career advice with other professionals in the industry.

Featuring entrepreneurs, product developers and business owners, the YEN Live Chat recording playlist is available for YEN members to access anytime, anywhere.
