Porsche Centre Silverstone’s Customer Host, Lucy Garrett recently gave a presentation to year 12 students of Sponne School in Towcester about her journey through education and life at Porsche Centre Silverstone.
Sponne School invited a group of their highest achieving alumni to share their stories with the current crop of Sixth Form students. Porsche Centre Silverstone’s high-flyer, Lucy Garrett, was one of the key speakers at the event and gave a captivating insight into the challenges and triumphs along her journey to Porsche.
Lucy told the students: “The chance to become a brand ambassador for a prestigious name like Porsche was an opportunity that was too good to turn down.” She went on to describe how each day at the Centre brings a fresh challenge and an opportunity to engage with a wide range of people:
“I love the variety that each day offers – whether it’s helping a customer find the car of their dreams in our state-of-the-art showroom, or discussing technical specs with our Aftersales Team. I definitely feel that my education at Sponne School, along with the challenges of university, have provided me with a skills set I use every day at work”
When one of the students asked Lucy what her favourite part of her job is, she replied: “I am surrounded by beautiful cars ever day - it’s pretty hard to beat the view of a 911 GT3RS (my favourite car) when you’re working at your desk – what a pleasure!”
One of Lucy’s former teachers led the ovation as Lucy finished off her presentation by announcing Porsche Centre Silverstone’s new showroom development: “Once we’ve finished with the refurbishments, it’ll will be a flagship Porsche Centre – something I think the whole community will be proud of. Make sure you all pay us a visit!”
Lucy is set to graduate from Anglia Ruskin University in October and is looking forward to her next stage of her journey with Porsche.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
