Fifth year of management shadowing at Chamber

Last week we were delighted to have Guernsey Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre student Megan Jones in the office to management shadow our Director Barry Cash.

This year was the fifth that Chamber has offered to take part in the management shadow scheme which Barry wholeheartedly embraces.

“I see Management Shadowing as great opportunity for both the student and the business involved. On the one hand it gives the student insight to the practicalities of being a manager and on the other it gives the manager an opportunity to explain his style of leadership and management.”

Megan was with the Chamber office for three days and had a varied experience ranging from attending our July lunch and council meeting to a potential new member meeting.

“A student who arrives with the right attitude is a real pleasure for the manager involved as it encourages them to explain their business in detail knowing that whatever meeting they may attend their shadow will not let them or themselves down. Often the student asks questions on subjects the management may normally take for granted. This can lead to interesting discussions and makes the manager question whether what they have been taking for granted is the best way or not,” said Barry.

We wish Megan all the best with writing up her presentation and look forward to hearing her thoughts on the experience.
