SSAIB Host Another Successful Installers Forum For Registered Firms

SSAIB are celebrating our latest successful Installers Forum event – after the 2017 event was supported fantastically by our registered firms.

Demand for the event – sponsored by BT Redcare – saw places snapped up within 36 hours of them being made available, meaning that the auditorium at the prestigious BT Tower in London was packed out for the company’s annual showpiece occasion.

Attendees were treated to an annual update from SSAIB chief executive Alex Carmichael, who praised the progress that the company has made and discussed the changes that SSAIB has implemented to take us forward. Event host Nick Whiting then discussed BT Redcare and the recent developments they have made.

Cyber security expert Andrew Sieradzki gave a presentation on the dangers of cyber exploitation and also highlighted the benefits of the Cyber Essentials scheme – which SSAIB achieved to Cyber Essentials Plus standard – and the benefits of companies completing it.

SSAIB training manager Trevor Jenks informed attendees on the new Trailblazers apprentice scheme for fire and security – as well as going through how firms can apply for funding for it. IFSEC’s head of content Charlotte Wright then wrapped up proceedings by discussing next month’s event at the Excel in London and what it is likely to include.

Lunch then took place upstairs in the revolving restaurant, which stands at 189 metres high – allowing our guests to enjoy unparalleled views of London as they ate.

Sales manager Andrew Brown was delighted with the event and the support it had received from SSAIB firms.

Andrew said: “It’s great to have held yet another successful Installers Forum at the BT Tower. The success of them really does depend on our firms and the turnout for this year’s event was fantastic to see.

“I’d like to thank every single person that attended, all of our speakers and our brilliant hosts at BT Redcare. The BT Tower isn’t open to the public, so it’s great to be able to give our guests an almost exclusive visit to the revolving restaurant that has some magnificent views of London.

“We always try to give firms help and advice whenever we visit them, be it here or during our regional meetings throughout the year. So, we hope we’ve given them something to think about with regards to apprenticeships and cyber security – as they’re aspects of business that sometimes get overlooked.

“If we can continue to help and support our firms, then these events are more than worth it.”
