WHAT IS REFUEL?
What started as a DEALER INSPIRE company event to give back to our employees has become a shared community experience to unplug, gain new perspectives, and get inspired to be our best selves. This can’t-miss day will help you refuel after a challenging year, and reimagine your goals for a healthier and stronger 2022.
HOW ELSE CAN I REFUEL?
In addition to our speaker lineup, we’ve brought in experts in meditation, nutrition, and creative relaxation to guide you through this year’s (virtual) workshops!
