Business Students meet Porsche Business Manager
Mr Sinclair, Teacher of Business, writes:
On the 14th and 16th October 2019 both Year 9 and Year 12 Business students were privileged to receive a presentation from Dan Jones, the business manager at the local Porsche centre in Hatfield. Dan spent 45 minutes each time delivering information on Porsche’s sales turnover, demand and supply and the dynamic nature of the market that they operate in. This guest speaker truly brought Business to life and allowed students to put their theory into Business context. Most exciting was the news that Dan was going to Barcelona this week to launch the new all electric car; the Teycan 4s!
“I thoroughly enjoyed having Dan come in to see us as he taught us a lot about the risks and rewards that they took. I especially loved having him in as I love cars and really love Porsche.” Alex O’Carroll, 9O
“I really enjoyed listening to the guest speaker from Porsche. I was able to understand a different aspect of the business world”. Archie Bell, 9H
“It’s always lovely to have guest speakers from various industries as this really brings home to students how applicable the business theory they are learning is. Dan was particularly inspirational, it was clear from his delivery how passionate he was about his job. Our students were fully captivated and could have asked Dan questions all day!” Mrs Ramsamy
