Before going full-time self-employed in 2018 I worked for my entire working life in the automotive industry. I worked in roles from Sales Executive up to General Manager in dealerships, and then in the aftermarket in regional and national roles, before going on to work for manufacturers in training and coaching positions. I have been fortunate enough to work all over the UK for the likes of Volkswagen Group and even spearheaded a programme roll out into Eastern Europe for Mercedes Benz.

I am utilising this experience now by filling the gaps in my work in professional sport and events by writing and hosting training courses and carrying out in-dealership coaching for a number of motor manufacturers, including Toyota, Hyundai, Mercedes Benz Van and Porsche.

To help with the structure of this work, in April 2020 I set up The Seymour York Consultancy Ltd, a company under which I now complete all of my work.

Here you see me with my colleague and friend Leonie Blackburn, conducting online training webinars for RTS to help launch the all-new Toyota Yaris Hybrid through the second coronavirus lockdown in November 2020.
