Automation for productivity, piracy data operations and softskills for broadband engineering will be the key focus of the Society for Broadband Professionals (SCTE) Summer Lecture programme on 6 July, the organisation has announced.

The SCTE’s annual Summer Lecture, this year titled: Maximising Data, Maximising Performance, will take place at Tylney Hall in Hook, Hampshire.


SCTE’s annual summer lecture: Maximising Data, Maximising Performance

As part of the organisation’s incentive to offer training and career advancement of technical professionals in the field, the day features a morning of lectures from leading industry figures on a variety of current topics, followed by a networking lunch.

Speakers this year include John Knox, Consulting Solutions Engineer from broadband network provider Calix, Sarah Golley, founder and director at Borderless Performance, and Guy Oliver, Enterprise Sales Director at Muso.

Knox will be focusing on efficiency across the business in a lecture entitled, “How Embracing Automation Can Boost Productivity, Lower Costs, and Transform Your Operations”. Golley will be delivering “Breezing Through Change,” a lecture looking at the personal demands as the telecoms industry evolves, and Oliver, from a data analytics perspective, will be looking at how data can be utilised to maximise performance, entitled “How are Major Studios, Broadcasters and Distributors using Piracy Data to Drive Revenue?”

The lectures are part of an effort to consistently raise the standard of broadband engineering in the telecommunications industry. Anthony Basham, President of the SCTE said: “One of the greatest strengths of the SCTE is its ongoing and very popular lecture series. We are always delighted to bring this event back for the summer.”

Speaker Sarah Golley said, “Qualifications, accreditation and experience are all important, but it’s the softer (or human) skills that are the secret sauce to successful technical career.”

The SCTE recommends that registration for the Summer Lecture is completed in advance.
