We can’t promise you a red carpet premiere but we are extremely happy with the release of the first in a series of Guild of Professional Chauffeurs PR videos. The first one gives a brief insight into the reasons behind the Guild’s formation, what membership offers, and even a sneak preview of our challenging assessment process.
The Guild has announced two forthcoming weekends which will again give chauffeurs the opportunity to undertake professional driver-specific first aid courses and attempt the the assessment process to gain membership.
Welcome from Steve Sommerfeld, Chairman.
Steve Sommerfeld, Andy Dubberley, Alan Whitehall, Steve Lynch, Gary Dodds, Shaun …
Apologies from Gary Jacob and Simon Rudd.
Steve Sommerfeld outlined the general position the Guild currently finds itself in, together with the main topics requiring discussion.
‘Meet the Guild’ and Chauffeur Industry networking event on Saturday 26th May at Parkers European HQ near Bicester.
The day will consist of static chauffeur car displays, (Audi and others TBC), trade stands from leading industry product and service providers and Parkers themselves will be recruiting for Chauffeurs to join their team. We will also be running a chauffeur-specific first aid course as per earlier posts.
Saturday 24th February saw the GoPC’s first ‘open to industry’ members assessment day. And we have to say it was a fantastic success! It was the culmination of well over a year’s worth of painstaking planning and preparation.
We are proud to announce the first candidate assessment date for Guild Membership is 24th February 2018. At the time of writing, there are still a couple of slots available, so if you are keen to be one of the first to gain full membership of the Guild of Professional Chauffeurs, contact us today.
The Guild wants everyone to have the opportunity to go through our assessment process and hopefully be successful in gaining membership. One question we’ve been asked numerous times is whether there’s a way for those individuals without their own chauffeur car to be assessed.
We’re very aware of the interest in the Guild and how keen many chauffeurs are to be part of such a long-awaited industry body. February will be the month when we open our doors to everyone who wishes to apply for membership by attempting the assessment process.
In January, (date TBC), the Guild will hold an open day for invited guests to come and see what we are all about. Guests will include our wonderful sponsors and supporters, members of the motoring press, and even the odd celebrity!
The Guild’s next committee meeting will take place on the 9th December.
The day will also see six of the committee attempt the assessment process to gain full membership. There will be no short cuts for committee members, they will have to satisfy the same criteria as any other potential candidate.
