Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) with CEO Geoff Houston hosted a corporate party at Below Decks at Abaco Beach Resort on December 2 with the view to foster a better relationship with the business community of Abaco.
A number of upper-level management and local staff from BTC were present at the well-attended party who mingled and spoke with the guests around hors d’oeuvres and drinks while being entertained with live music.
Senior Vice-president Commercial and Family Islands, Tellis Symonette said BTC Since last year has done a lot of work with their network and in improving both the technical staff and the sales staff in Abaco.
“We want you to meet our staff so that you can know them and so we can build a better relationship with you,” he said.
“We came here, not to just eat and have a good time, but to be available to speak with you; to engage you so you can tell us what we are doing whether right or wrong. It’s very important for us.”
He said the Abaco market is very important to BTC and they didn’t do a very good job in the past of servicing this market.
“We want to improve our business, grow our resources, be able to work with you and make us all more successful,” he said.
He spoke of some changes to the company image, an updated logo and redesigned website, as well as the expectation that in early 2014 LTE – the next generation of mobile data offering higher speeds – will be available in Abaco. Presently LTE has been rolled out in Nassau and Grand Bahama.
