The course, run by Howitt Consulting, lasted 12 months and was completed by Gary back in October. It included coursework, quarterly knowledge tests and a final presentation to show case what he had learnt. Additionally, learning logs had to be completed and submitted on a weekly basis to show how he was applying what he had learnt in his day to day work.
Gary Warrington said, ‘It was very in-depth and took me out of my comfort zone at times. Within the course I learnt, how a building is built, negotiations skills, time management, managing external visits, securing opportunities and completing the course with a final presentation’. He continued to say that he received support internally from the Zenon team members including Paul Hanratty, National Sales Manager for Zenon and Ian Weakford, Sales and Marketing Director of Hambleside Danelaw.
This achievement has been the catalyst in Gary stepping out of the office and moving towards field based Sales and building on customer relationships on behalf of the company.
