Our plan is to showcase our academy targeted towards installers looking to grow their business. We ll also be handing out some useful marketing information for security installers. IG: What s your background? MS: I learnt about the security industry through my father who left his management role with BT to become a full time security installer in 1990. I was brought up watching him fit security systems and It taught me a lot about the nature of running your own business.
Fast forward 15 years, I left university and could not find a job so decided to become a CCTV Installer and found it incredibly rewarding. I was always fascinated with the products, so after three years I setup as a distributor and began supplying the trade with CCTV equipment. It was through this experience that I learnt how important it was for installers to understand how to manage their business. I think a lot of well qualified installers lose out due to a lack of attention on the marketing and management side. Whether it s advertising themselves, designing a sales system that helps them win more jobs or project management their installations. So many installers I used supply cut themselves short when it came to marketing themselves properly. This is when I had the first idea for an Academy that could teach business skills for installers who were primarily driven by technical expertise. I ve also been reading lots of articles about the shortage of engineers in the trade and our academy is planning on a campaign to help bring more people into the industry. IG: Please tell me about the things you have to offer the market?
MS: Our primary product is a training course which anyone from the trade can register and attend. The courses are specifically targeted towards business skills so you d learn things like: Advertising your business online Managing your projects more effectively Controlling your paperwork and finances We also have a solutions division which has successfully completed a number of business solutions since January.
