Travel Log: Pitman On Tour

Follow our journey around the UK here, via our live blog updates.

Day 16: The Penultimate Pit-stop

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Office* show, and it was fantastic taking people through our new ‘Career MOT’ app; we saw some very interesting results and obtained great feedback. We were pleased to see our Executive PA plus diploma is still in high demand amongst experts in the industry.

It was great to see so many familiar faces over two days of motivational workshops, inspirational seminars and a showcase of cutting edge business solutions and services. We’re already looking forward to next year.

Day 15: There’s a Campervan in the Office*…

…show, that is. After a bit of a bumpy ride to London the Pitman Campervan finally pitched up at Office*; ‘The UK’s leading event for PAs, EAs, VAs and Office Managers’, to run  ‘Career MOT’ testing and to offer industry advice seminars on the career route maps available.

Day 14: Campervan Meets Queen Victoria in Manchester

A bustling Saturday in Manchester City Centre saw us pitched up at the foot of the Queen Victoria Statue in Piccadilly Gardens, with shoppers more than happy to take time out from their retail therapy to have a go on our new free Career MOT app and seek career and CV advice. We found a lot of ENTP’s in Manchester; Extroverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving character types; these are the visionaries and investors of the business world.

This was the last of our regional pit-stops, and what better way to spend it; surrounded with more enthusiastic people who are raring to drive their careers forward: Beep beep.

Day 13: Day 2 in Birmingham

We were once again greeted with an array of ‘Career MOT’ enthusiasts who were intrigued and impressed with their app results. It turns out there are a lot of INFP characters in Birmingham – Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving profile; with skills and attributes best suited to careers in journalism, consultancy and I.T , amongst many others.

Day 12: Will Birmingham Take the Bull By its Horns?

We set up our Pit-stops on Birmingham’s High Street, just next to the Bullring Shopping centre, ready for another day of Career MOT Testing.

We were very pleasantly greeted with a multitude of eager faces, happy to try our new free app ‘Career MOT’ and book some free career and CV advice.

It was really great to see so many people inspired to drive their futures forward. Looking forward to another busy day tomorrow!

Day 11: The Bridge to a New Career

We spent Day 11 travelling from Cardiff to our next Pit-Stop: Birmingham… ready to bridge the gaps in careers across the UK with our new, innovative, free app: Career MOT.

Day 10: Is Cardiff a City of Executives?

We’ve enjoyed another busy day at our Cardiff Pit-stop on Queen Street… so far we’ve gathered some quite remarkable stats which would suggest that Cardiff could be a City home to many an ENTJ – Extroverted  iNtuitive Thinking Judging profile: which could lead to career paths including an MD, Politician, Marketing Manager or Entrepreneur amongst many others.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time in Cardiff, and who knows, we may just have met the next Steve Jobs (a fellow ENTJ profile!)

 

Day 9: Passport to Career Success – A Testimonial by Jean

Yesterday we met Jean in Cardiff… Jean is 82, and studied Pitman Shorthand many years ago… she was really pleased to see we’re still Training the Nation, and commented that in her mind, Pitman Training is still the passport to career success!

Day 8: Revamped and Reunited… Campervan makes headway to Cardiff

We were very excited to be re-united with our revamped Campervan, after a short time away having a diagnostic check-up of his own!

We hit the road, looking forward to our next Pit-stop on Cardiff’s Queen Street.

Day 7: Victoria’s Avatars Shape the Face of London’s Workforce

Our team of Career Mechanics were overwhelmed by the response from commuters at London’s Victoria Rail Station – by far the biggest footfall of our tour to-date!

From results we’ve seen so far, it would appear that London is home to a healthy number of INTP  profiles – the Thinkers and Engineers… we’ll run a detailed analysis of national and regional results once we’ve finished up on the road!
