Commenting on his role as presenter of the nationwide TechTalks, Darren says: “I want to demystify the jargon, clear up any confusion and help everyone who comes along to the CEF TechTalks understand the new regulations.
“At CEF, we want to make things easy for our customers. I’ll be presenting all the information they need to know in a way that’s easy to understand. I’m looking forward to answering their questions so that they can feel confident they know what they need to get the job done.”
Darren will be joined on stage by Dave Austin, Technical Presenter of the Learning Lounge and guest speaker Mark Coles, Head of Technical Regulations from the IET.
