Ford Australia Apprentice Awards
Ford Oz runs awards for apprentices which undoubtedly give such people incentive to learn their craft and hopefully instill a good work ethic and quality tradesmanship. Typically an awards event is held annually and the best get to attend Ford facilities in the USA, race teams, and many will be working with Ford pit crews at Bathurst.
Typically corporate sponsorships help these awards and pay costs. Some of the best people I deal with at my dealership and Ford itself have been recipients of such awards.
Given my blue blood and my belief in these sort of things I am aiming to contribute a sum towards such an award, starting at around $500. Hopefully it will give incentive to an extra technician to do a good job and win over more customers at whatever dealership they work at.
Is anyone else interested in helping out?
Also, I specifically ask John and the FF.com crew whether I/we are allowed to maybe use the FF.com name as the sponsoring body (every bit of publicity will help right?). Having FF.com seen as being part of the Ford community would be great.
