Pret a Manger - Happy Teams, Happy Customers

Youth Sports Trust & PRET

Today at SHC we opened our doors to the YST and Pret as part of their happy teams, happy customer workshop - the first of four workshops leading to the recruitment of bright hopefuls to the Pret apprenticeship programme.

Former Thai boxing champion Rachel McKenzie gave the students a rousing and inspirational talk of her own experiences and challenges in the ring.
The moral?
No matter how many times you get knocked down stay focused believe in yourself and keep going. Having people to support and believe in you is also crucial but it starts with self-belief.

Although she claims to be an ordinary person who achieved great things, we think Rachel is a very special and her words clearly inspired and motivated our students. The young hopefuls participated in a number of activities that helped them to bond and learn the values that Pret install in their teams.

 “Ordinary people can do amazing things if they don't give up and put their minds to it.“
 -Rachel McKenzie

It was an amazing workshop that the students thoroughly enjoyed and learned from.

We can’t wait to see what else the great people at Pret have in store for our students in the following workshops, we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
