5 minutes with John Stevens
This week we took 5 minutes out to chat with Business Development Manager for Stevenage and Cambridge- John Stevens.
1. What do you like most about working in logistics?
I enjoy providing a solution for our clients. Customer support, building relationships, and focusing on specific clients requirements is key, as is attention to detail in order to transport their goods safely and securely. I like to work closely with the customer considering what needs to be dispatched, providing the appropriate vehicle to manage their freight.
2. What do you do to wind-down after a busy day at work?
I do like to meditate in my spare time, it’s important to find peace and stay free from adversity. I’m also a musician, so at times it’s great to get behind the keyboard and play. When I can find time, I like to compose musical productions with my music studio set up.
3. At 8 years old, what job did you want to do when you grew up?
As far back as I can remember, I was very active, playing sports, basketball and football in particular. However, coincidentally I did enjoy talking and so with that, I enjoyed selling sport cards to computer games, to friends and with the help from family members, I enjoyed advertising my stuff in the local paper, to sell for pocket money. So I would say I was very much interested in commerce at a young age.
4. What is your favourite food?
I’ve always had a soft spot for Italian food, Pizza would be my choice. It will always be my favourite convenient takeout food.
5. What is your favourite film?
There are a few films I really enjoy and from different genres, but to pick one that resonates with me is “The Pursuit of Happyness.” I love that the film depicts a true to life story for someone that comes from struggling times to making his mark in the world for his family and achieving success.
