CMH Kempster Ford Pretoria embarked on a journey in Ford Guest Experience (FGE) which is mainly a commitment we wanted to partake in delivering a sales and service experience that is distinctly Ford, and that all our guests love because every guest is special.
So to help us carry this through and sustain it we had the honour to have three interns who will be embarking on this journey with us and “excitement” is an understatement to use to describe what the opportunity of having these three energetic interns made us feel!
When we received the email from Ford introducing the three ladies whom we’d take under our wing to introduce and coach them about the real corporate we couldn’t be more delighted.
The three interns named: Zenande Picane, Kate Mtileni and Lehlogonolo Mako started with us on the 11th January 2021 and here is what they had to say about themselves:
Kate Mtileni is currently studying Public Relations through the University of South Africa and she has done marketing / promotions since 2014, she says she is passionate about make-up and is self thought. Kate started trading clothing as a side business (Mhhh I think we have a smart young lady over here)
“At a time like this where a lot of our youth especially graduates are unemployed whilst our country’s unemployment rate continues to rise above the waves, one may say that it is with great honour to be one of the few candidates that was selected to be part of YES4Youth Programme with Ford”, Says Zenande Picane who is an artist by profession and she highlights that during this Coronavirus Pandemic, majority of artists are and were left stranded as their work has to do with the mass being in contact and that is where she was rescued by the YES4YOUTH PROGRAMME.
Ms Picane says The YES programme has already created a future vision for her as to how one should conduct themselves in the corporate world in terms of being professional and being customer orientated. She further says as a young black woman, she is ready for the YES PROGRAMME to educate her in all aspects of the business!
Last but not least, we have Lehlogonolo Mako who is studying towards a degree in Law through the University of South Africa but she says marketing and sales is definitely her hobby ( well isn’t she at the right place). Lehlogonolo says she is passionate about working with different people in different fields, she speaks on not going to limit herself and that she will strive to do her best and work hard with every opportunity coming her way.
Lehlogonolo says she is learning how fast paced the industry is and all the challenges but she is willing to take it right ON!
We are extremely delighted to have them and we hope to impart all the necessary skills to these three SO positive women. From all of us at CMH Kempster Ford Pretoria, We wish them a great year with us and a brighter future!
