In June Autoworld hosted a three day technical and sales training course given by Mercury Marine at the Downtown branch on Kafue Road in Lusaka. Mercury sent two technical experts to conduct the training. Dealer representatives came from Mozambique, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, as well as Zambia.
The Mercury Marine technical training course was conducted by Paul van der Westhuizen (Mercury Marine's Area Sales Manager for Africa) and Georg Nieuwoudt (Mercury Marine's Technical Customer Support Specialist). Both are well known to the Autoworld team.
The feedback for our hosting of the event was positive. The training sessions were not only enjoyable, they gave the participants better understanding of the Mercury Marine range of boat engines, propellers and other accessories, as well as technical knowledge to help them guide and advise clients.
