Broadening my skill set was a no-brainer. It’s important to be able to see beyond what's right in front of you, which you can often get caught up in. I knew that this apprenticeship would enable me to think outside the box, conduct more critical and creative thinking, and open up new connections.
Having enjoyed sales for quite a while, I felt it was time to immerse myself in this world even more, and get my teeth stuck into this learning journey.
Throughout the course, I was presented with plenty of alternative learning opportunities and methods. My development coach Sarah and I had numerous conversations that led to the discovery of podcasts and blink lists (15-minute book summaries) to help me progress without having to do lots of heavy reading.
Sarah provided fantastic support on both a professional and personal level. She helped me to be strategic, as well as effectively engage with processes and colleagues.
Whilst sales has been the core of this apprenticeship, I’ve also been able to develop my knowledge of finance, marketing, supply chains and more. This has broadened my insight into the day-to-day running of the company.
I was given the opportunity to attend an event in London, which looked beyond sales, and featured talks from retired tennis player, Marius Barnard and managing director of Brother UK, Phil Jones. It was incredibly engaging and uplifting, because in a typically male-dominated industry, we heard talks from female leaders too.
