The Telecom industry is under-invested in training as a whole. This was the general feedback and view of many attendees of the recent Convergence Summit held at Sandown Park during a panel debate session. So why is this so? Do people generally feel that there is no need to invest in training because they already have all the skills they need to have? I’m sure that most of us need training and do generally welcome it, so why is this the case? Perhaps it’s as simple as not having sufficient training available to them… I’d be interested to know what holds us back in this area, because I know from first hand experience how valuable training is.

I am a highly experienced, energetic, persistent and innovative senior sales professional/sales leader with 25 (plus), successful years of sales and leadership experience, developing and managing sales teams and winning new business with and through partner channels to deliver profitable revenue growth through an approach of clarity, openness and flexibility. I am by nature inquisitive and enquiring and whole-heartedly embrace any technology that enhances our experiences. Fun is an important element of work/life for me, so whilst I am deadly serious about the business of business, I do like to work in an environment that is fun to be in. I am very much a people person and fundamentally believe that it is the people in an organisation that make it a success or otherwise. I thrive in team environments - creating, developing and galvanising individuals into coordinated teams is my forte, and I thrive on a fast-paced dynamic environment, where great people challenge and ultimately deliver high quality results for demanding customers. I am a real customer advocate and hold a firm belief that in the customer economy in which we live today, World Class performance is the only option to retain (and grow) customers. If we get it wrong, we say so quickly and act to reach a remedy. I am a catalyst – connecting and coordinating people and opportunities. I am a motivator and inspire people to be the best that they can be through coaching and mentoring. One of my favourite "quotes" is Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a beer in one hand, shouting "Whoo, what a ride!!" Views here are my own. https://grahambunting.com/findme/ View all posts by Graham Bunting
