“Companies don’t last to their 25th year without hard work and a dedication. I’m grateful to have such a talented team, many who have worked for the company for a long time and all are driven to help CNet succeed. We have fantastic relationships with our customers, industry associations and media contacts across the world, many of whom we think of as close friends and we wouldn’t be where we are now without them. I love leading the CNet team and seeing all that we have achieved over the years. We have created a fantastic educational framework that I’m immensely proud of and we never want to standstill. We are always striving to do more, and we have a lot of exciting things coming over the next couple of years, so watch this space!”
Looking ahead, CNet is working on exciting plans to expand its technical offering, adding more programs to its renowned education framework and working alongside the industry and leading organisations to create further technical apprenticeships for the network infrastructure sector. This will help to encourage more people into the industry and work as an industry to tackle the on-going skills shortage and make it a more inclusive workplace.
