Join Craig to learn about alternatives to traditional land lines and on-premise phone systems. This short seminar will give an introduction to SIP phone systems and how:
• You can reduce your costs
• Increase your business profile
• Provide business continuity in the event of an emergency
Come and see how, regardless the size of your business, you can have a phone system and functionality traditionally only available to large companies spending £1000’s in set up and ongoing costs.

Craig spent 12 years in the Royal Air Force, initially as a Propulsion Specialist. His role changed towards the end of his Air Force career as he became involved in developing and supporting IT infrastructure and communications for a number of Royal Air Force bases across the UK.
After leaving the Royal Air Force, Craig’s first civilian job was as the IT Manager for RST Accountants. Craig managed a team of in-house IT specialists covering 19 offices across the north of England and southern Scotland.
His next role was as UK IT Manager for Thule, a multinational automotive company. Initially responsible for 3 sites in the UK, he was promoted to Divisional IT Manager with his responsibilities increased to include sites in Sweden and Poland.
In 2008, he founded Prestige IT Support. Based in Bradford, Prestige IT Support provide IT services and consultancy to customers ranging from sole traders to multinational companies across the UK and Europe. The company expanded into the African continent, being particularly successful in Nigeria. Due to this expansion Craig set up a separate Ltd company (Prestige Project Services) in Nigeria to deal with the growing customer base.
Due to continued growth in the communications side of the business, Galaxy Comms was formed to deal specifically with B2B IT Communications. Galaxy specialise in voice (SIP and VoIP) systems and providing broadband services such as ADSL, Fibre and Leased Lines across the UK.
Craig is a lifelong Bradford City fan and his dream is to be successful enough to buy Bradford City and get them back into the Premiership!
