NBN adviser switches off in South West
After presenting almost 200 public seminars to more than 3800 attendees, the South West’s independent NBN adviserMike Hendry is calling it a day.
Mr Hendry helped thousands of businesses, not-for-profit organisations and households switch to faster internet in the South West over the past couple of years, thanks to a free NBN advisory service.
“It has been a privilege to assist businesses, community groups and not-for-profit organisations make the change to the NBN by providing people with trusted information, so they could make the best decisions for their own circumstances,” Mr Hendry said.
The position was established through a partnership between the South West Development Commission, Regional Development Australia South West, NBN, Business South West and the South West Chambers of Commerce and Industry established the adviser role in October 2016.
Since then Mr Hendry has provided free and impartial advice to more than 500 clients. Develop- ment commission acting chief executive officer Rebecca Ball thanked Mr Hendry for his dedication in delivering the service to communities around the South West.
“We think locals have appreciated having the opportunity to tap into this free service and receive independent advice . . .
this was all about making sure South West residents, businesses and groups received access to an independent voice they could rely on when connecting to the NBN.”
South West independent NBN adviser Mike Hendry says his mission is accomplished after presenting almost 200 NBN seminars.
