ŠKODA Newcastle Prove Their Skill in Budapest!

Back in 2016 our Newcastle site pit the wits of their Service team against the Skoda GB Challenge, a competition in which 130 dealers can participate to prove their skill and knowledge across Sales and Service.

Our nominees Stuart Carrick, Service Supervisor, and Mark Allman, Master Technician, have collectively been with the brand for just under 30 years making them the perfect pair to represent us in our first entry to bring home the prestigious awards on offer.

A multiple choice assessment set the first stage, quizzing them on customer service and knowledge but they both passed with flying colours and landed themselves in the top 5! Next up was a day of role-plays assessed by top Skoda trainers to see how they perform on the job and to test their nerves but noticeably, our super-team weren’t phased as we later came to learn at the award ceremony…

All 5 finalists were invited with their partners to the Retailer Event of the Year in Budapest, giving them the chance to get suited and booted for a lovely gala dinner. When the results were finally revealed, the whole team was delighted as Stuart was awarded 2nd place and Mark 3rd! They were both presented with a personalised plaque and a photo opportunity, whilst understandably getting a huge boost in confidence and morale.

We were of course delighted by the result and are extremely proud to house some of the finest in the business.
