We are extremely proud of Justin Paveley CTS-D, CTS-I for winning European CTS Holder of the year 2017 at the AV Awards on the 29th of September 2017.
Hear what Justin had to say about winning the award!
Before starting in the AV industry, I was a soldier in the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment. Adjusting to life outside of the army is not easy; I was used to my life being very structured and suddenly I was going it alone with no obvious career prospects. Then a close friend offered me a lifeline; a job in the audio visual industry! It was my only option at the time but I chose to embrace the opportunity, applying the discipline from my army days to deliver excellent AV services to our clients.
Many companies will only employ those with industry experience. Focus 21 take a different view; they believe that talented people come from all backgrounds. This award recognizes Focus 21’s emphasis on education and career growth for dedicated people.
It’s important that Focus 21 delivers the highest possible standards to its customers and industry accreditations like Infocomm CTS allows us to do this.
Focus 21 has created a platform to inspire talented people to do great things and I hope, by winning this the CTS holder of the year 2017, I can demonstrate what’s possible for those looking for an opportunity in a great industry, that I’m so glad I fell into.
