#ALB73 – The man who keeps people connected….. Tony Smith
This month’s guest is Tony Smith, Tony served 30 years with Lincolnshire police before enjoying some well-deserved rest in retirement. But it wasn’t long before he started getting restless, and when his son took redundancy and started up his own business a discussion took place. Tony joined his son and together they grew the business that is Genius Technology Solutions which is now over 10 years old.
Working with family members can be tricky, as some of you may know! But after a realisation that texting or calling at 9pm would not be acceptable in any other job. Tony and his son put in place some ground rules, to ensure thy both got the downtime they both needed.
The business has consistently grown and where his son finds himself looking after the enterprise side of things Tony looks after the SME’s.
Genius Technology Solutions provides all types of phones, from VOIP, mobiles and landlines plus broadband connectivity and Wi-Fi.
Last year we relied heavily on keeping connected virtually, and truly appreciated how important it is whether that has been for business or to speak to friends and family. This is something Tony has known for years.
Thank you to Tony for being our first guest of 2021.
