The efforts ultimately came down to the driver going out onto the track and using his knowledge of the car and experience, to win championships.
Highflyer brand ambassador Kareem Wilson, said that he enjoyed “learning about and understanding the history of McLaren,” as it helped him take the practices that are embedded in McLaren and apply them to his daily role.
Choosing to be a self-employed brand ambassador within the Appco Group network, offers many benefits including flexible working hours, control over your earning potential and opportunities to grow and progress through a defined career development path.
Brand ambassador Kang Young Min says it’s about the people he meets every day and that every donor represents a “pillar of hope”. Kim Mi-Jung says a positive mind-set will take you far and Jo A-ra enjoys the team atmosphere and being surrounded by people who are “endlessly willing to help you improve”.
