Driver to Manager Development Scheme – Day 1

Day 1 is always a tough day on these schemes.

We challenge the delegates to use their brain differently. 

Topics covered included:

  • Listening
  • What Alan Miles the Managing Director wanted to achieve from the scheme
  • 100 tips for success
  • Review of psychometric tests
  • What does an MD do
  • Added value
  • Terms and terminology
  • Case study on cost saving initiatives for customers
  • How we gain new business
  • Advantges of inexperience v experience
  • Shipping to and from Ireland and associated risks
  • Weather forecasts and  implications
  • Self presentation

We had delegates from Scotland, Warwick and Holyhead on the course.

All participated well.

It will be interesting to see how they develop as the course continues.
