Flomatik CEO, Dean Checkley, to bolster Connected Britain panel
On 20-21 September, Connected Britain will open its doors to 150 exhibitors and 3,000 attendees across the public and private sector.
Delegates from over 800 organisations – including global telecoms giants, trailblazing altnets, and everything in between – will explore the latest developments in technology, regulation, and investment, for the rollout of next generation networks.
Hosted at The Business Design Centre in London, it remains the UK’s leading event in the connectivity space – helping to shape Britain’s digital future through the productive sharing of must-know knowledge and expertise.
Taking to the stand on day one at 2:20pm, our CEO Dean Checkley is set to bolster one of the many thought-provoking conference programme line-ups taking place at the expo.
Joining Dean at the panel will be Digital Advantage’s managing director, Ravinderpal Gehlon, Adele Reynold, Principal Skills Manager at Greater Manchester Combined Authority, PhD researcher at the University of Exeter, Daisy Curtis, and director at Cable Telecommunications Training Services, Martyn Cook.
Delving deeper into ‘The future of work: strategies for equipping individuals with the necessary digital skills’, the discussion is centred around the nationwide skills shortage, how to develop a coordinated approach to overcome this hurdle, and the social and economic benefits of upskilling the UK’s working population.
With a rich portfolio of experience – including 35 years’ management nous in the telecoms industry, plus a rising impact on business growth and CX during his tenure as Flomatik’s CEO – Dean is perfectly placed to deliver such insight.
Speaking on his panel contribution, Dean commented: “Because the roll out of FTTP is a finite project, we should be nurturing next-generation talent to support the future services that come hand-in-hand. But it should be less about why talent acquisition takes shape, and more about how, if we’re to truly maximise this opportunity.
“With the right development plan and resources to support on-the-job learning, organisations can facilitate upskilling within the industry’s growing talent pool – and from a variety of generations too. As a leader and supporter of new talent, I want people to join Flomatik for their career and not just as a job – no matter their age or background.”
The team will also be in attendance on both days with international technology group and Flomatik sister company, Teleste Group. For an exclusive look into upcoming innovations – including demonstrations of Teleste’s all-new passive optic products – and to discuss the future of connectivity with our experts, you can find us at stand 29.
We look forward to catching up with fellow delegates next week.
