In support of the professional chauffeuring industry, the Guild of Professional Chauffeurs releases its document ‘A suggestion of best practice – providing a chauffeur service during the Coronavirus pandemic – May 2020’. The document aims to help promote chauffeur services, and to reassure clients and the general public to start using our services once again.
Today is the Guild of Professional Chauffeur’s 3rd birthday. Set against the backdrop of the Coronavirus epidemic, which has severely affected our industry, we celebrate the positives of the only UK non-profit organisation in existence supporting the chauffeur industry’s reputation.
On a warm and sunny spring day at a crowded conference room within Parkers European HQ in Bicester, the 18th May 2017 saw the first GoPC Committee being formed. Our Committee and Company Secretary, Mr Gary Jacobs, formerly announced the news that with the listing of GoPC at Companies House in combination with our newly voted in committee of twelve (slightly nervous but very keen & excited) volunteers, the room echoed to the words “Gentlemen, congratulations – you now have a Guild!” to which followed a heartfelt, energised and surprisingly loud round of applause.
The weekend of the 18th and 19th of January saw a hugely successful GoPC networking and social event in the West Midlands with a turnout of Chauffeurs from all over the UK that well exceeded our expectations.
We were keen to give the many Chauffeurs interested in being part of the Guild an opportunity to see first hand what’s its all about and quiz both the management team and existing members about the merits of becoming part of it.
The GoPC management team are delighted to confirm that we’ll be running one of our popular one day, emergency first aid at work courses in Doncaster on 29th February. This will support the following day’s assessment, although you don’t have to be booked onto the assessment to attend the first aid course.
We hope you’ve all had a great Christmas!
If you’re not aware already we are holding a GoPC social and networking weekend on 18th & 19th Jan 2020. Please see the flyer below!
If possible we’d like to get GoPC members and those who are interested in the Guild together here, so we can network and mingle in a relaxed, fun and informal atmosphere.
