Topics to discuss at Unconference: Status and challenges of the Right to Repair movement. Best Practices in_______: Marketing--social media, website SEO, in-store promotions iPad Screen Repair--pressure sensitive adhesives Employee Training and Retention Pre/post repair device checks Part sourcing and inventory management Accessory sales and promotions Business Development--how to score school/govt contracts Fixing odd stuff--what have you fixed, how do you seek these repairs Signature problems and common epidemics--diagnosis and troubleshooting Device refurbishing--profitability, sourcing devices, sales Industry certification/standards development Less interesting to most but still on the list: iFixit Answers Community ^seems like a lot of the suggested topics on here fall in that category. I would encourage folks to think more broadly about a repair conference than forum issues. I think most people will be drawn to this conference as a way to connect with peers and share information about the business of running a repair shop in lieu of CTIA---so anything that is discussed with a margarita in hand is valid.
