Ubi-Tech Industry Technology Awareness Event March 5th 2015
A hundred and fifty exhibitors, guest speakers and armed forces delegates attended the inaugural telecommunications Industry Technology Awareness Event organised by Ubi-Tech (3R) Limited an ELCAS approved resettlement training provider.
The event was held at the prestigious country estate of the Marquis Of Hertford, Ragley Hall in the Warwickshire countryside. The service at Ragley Hall was fantastic, coffee, tea and cakes were available all day and lunch was provided for all attendees.
The show comprised a mixture of major telecoms employers such as Ericsson, BT, Obelisk the BBC and others, some keynote speakers from industry and university research facilities and of course most importantly the armed forces delegates who are considering that life changing decision to leave the services and to start a new career. For the armed forces delegates the event was free of charge. The opening address was given by Falklands Veteran Simon Weston OBE which proved to be both inspirational and motivational for all.
It was a unique occasion as it offered something for everybody; for the employers an opportunity to have direct contact with armed forces leavers and to find out for themselves the incredible quality and calibre and talents of those who serve our country; for the delegates they were able to get a great insight into the telecoms industry and its many and varied facets, job roles and career streams and of course a chance to impress potential employers; the magnificent, respected and stellar cast of speakers kept the audience enthralled and spellbound with their unrivalled insights into the future of the industry; and of course it was a great event for companies, delegates and speakers to network and to establish relationships.
Frankly, when we first decided to put this event together we really had no idea how it was going to go; nobody has done anything like this before and we realised that we were in the realms of an entirely new and different type of show. I am pleased to say that the feedback we have had is overwhelmingly positive and effusive from all concerned. In short it has been an overwhelming success and the unanimous verdict is that we must repeat the event next year……the planning has already started!
Some service leavers were offered interviews on the day and we are aware that some offers of employment have resulted. How fantastic is that! The types of careers that our students enjoy are Technical Consultant, Project Manager, Network Designer, Field Engineer, RF Surveyor and Planner and Global Instructor.
So successful was the day that it is now an annual event; we look forward to seeing you in 2016. If you would like an early invitation then either “Like” us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/UbiTechLimited
