Winner: SKODA Challenge

Sligo Motor Professional to Represent Ireland at International ŠKODA Challenge Final.

Eoin McGuinness wins National SKODA Challenge

Eoin McGuinness SKODA Challenge National Sales Consultant Winner

Our mighty Sales Executive Eoin McGuinness recently travelled to SKODA’s National Training Centre in Dublin to compete in the SKODA Challenge.

Eoin, found himself in the Top 3 of the Sales Consultant Category after completing an online exam where he competed against 26 other SKODA Sales professionals.  Another exam faced Eoin in Dublin against the best SKODA Sales Consultants in Ireland.  As part of this exam Eoin needed to demonstrate his knowledge of SKODA history, model line up including technology, connectivity, car systems and customer car personalisation.

We are delighted to announce that having battled off fierce competition Eoin won the National Final of the SKODA Challenge.  Eoin will now go forward to represent Ireland at the International Final in Croatia next year.

The ŠKODA Challenge has become a prestigious benchmark for measuring the qualities of the best employees in the ŠKODA network.  From this, we have proved we have one of the best Sales Consultants in Ireland right here in Sligo.

Commenting on the results of the ŠKODA Challenge, John Burns, our Dealer Principal said: “We are delighted with Eoin’s success in the competition.  Eoin joined our team in March 2017 and quickly gained extensive knowledge of the SKODA brand which he proved last weekend.  Eoin is a valued member of our team and is an extremely accomplished professional.  On behalf of everyone here at Burns Car Sales, I would like to congratulate him on his success.”

The winners of the national final will travel to Croatia to represent Ireland in the global finals next year. The ŠKODA Challenge is now in its ninth year and Irish ŠKODA employees have been key contenders in the competition throughout that time.
