Guest speaker: Chris Marsh from UK Fast

On Friday 6th June The Juice Academy hosted a very special guest speaker. Chris Marsh, the director of partner development at UK Fast came in to talk to Cohort 4 about all things social.

Straight from the start it was clear to see that Chris had a strong focus on what he believes to be essential in developing yourself as a professional, highlighting several different aspects of what it takes to excel yourself as an individual, and enhance a company’s reputation at the same time.Chris gave a brief history of himself, explaining how he had always had an interest in IT and had worked in customer services used for server hosting for 6 years, which helped him develop his interpersonal skills. The best customer service skill he learned? Smile!

Chris also informed us that he had previously been an apprentice himself with the Arcadia Group in Liverpool, which he described as a “positive learning experience.”

This really helped to create an encouraging atmosphere amongst the group as we are all relatively new apprentices ourselves, so it was comforting to hear that someone as successful as Chris had also chosen a similar route to us.
