Jason Weston, the UK Director of Prime Now, Amazon.com’s ultra-fast delivery service, visited Winstanley College this week to share the story of his incredible career.
Jason has spent the last 20 years working in the technology and ecommerce sector, having previously been Chief Operating Officer for online marketplace Notonthehighstreet.com, and having carried out several roles in a 12-year tenure at Amazon, including launching many new businesses for Amazon in the UK. Prior to this, Jason worked as an Editor and contributor for technology and computing magazines at Future Publishing, including titles PC Plus, .Net, PC Answers.
Students packed out the college’s theatre to listen to Jason speak and were given a chance to ask questions and get tips on succeeding in the ever-changing business world.
Clare Warrener, Business tutor, who organised the visit said: ‘Jason has worked and managed in some of the biggest e-commerce companies of today so it was fascinating to hear his ‘behind the scenes’ experience. The students got a lot from the visit and hopefully have been inspired to believe they too could achieve such a high-flying career.’
