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.
