Cable and Wireless CEO Inge Smidts underscores the importance of the company’s greatest assets – its people, during the 36th Annual CANTO Trade and Virtual Exhibition held between July 28 and July 30.
Cable and Wireless (C&W) Communications was the headline sponsor of the event.
Held under the theme, ‘The New Digital Reality – 2021 and Beyond’, the event was formally opened by David Cox, Senior Director, Regulatory, CWC and current Chairman of CANTO who welcomed participants and panellists to CANTO’s first-ever virtual trade event.
CWC put together an impressive line-up of discussion panels on the first day that focused on topical issues faced by the sector in the wake of an ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic.
In the first session of the day, CANTO Chairman David Cox spoke with CWC CEO, Inge Smidts, in a candid and insightful virtual fireside chat.
Smidts detailed how the regional communications and entertainment provider has been able to navigate through the challenges of the pandemic and put a uniquely ‘human’ face on the company’s commitment to keep its employees working and its customers connected.
