NBN ad­viser switches off in South West

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

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.
