In the session, Chris will share his journey from a trainee to managing director and all he has learnt in between from his various roles in operations. He will provide you with advice and encouragement that will help you with your career.

As a result of his own experience, Chris is a huge believer in the apprenticeship pathway and has been an employer governor for the Heathrow region of the BIFA Young Forwarder Network since its inception in 2019 and massive support to BIFA in getting the initiative launched. 

GEODIS’ apprenticeship programme has been highly successful, and Chris encourages their young people to engage in the various initiatives and opportunities provided.
