iKBBI CEO Damian Walters was subject to questioning by Essex Police this week, however we’re pleased to confirm only positive outcomes from the two hour investigation.
Invited to speak to a group of Essex Police Youth Cadets at their weekly session in Southend, attended by 13-18 year olds, Damian spoke about the history of the iKBBI and particularly how the organisation has evolved over it’s ten year history.
Discussions on the topic of apprenticeships was had, as was the opportunities the industry has to offer for those considering their current career options – “an ideal topic for this particular group of youngsters” said Damian Walters.
Damian went onto say: “Essex Police are operating a great initiative with the cadets and I was incredibly impressed by their conduct and professionalism throughout the presentation. I was honoured to be invited to speak to this group of outstanding young citizens and I hope my presentation inspired them to think positively about their futures”.
Damian also spoke about the various fundraising challenges he’s been involved in, to include the ascent of Everest in 2010 and his London-to-Paris cycling challenge in July.
Essex Police Unit Leader Vicky De’ath commented by saying: “The voluntary police cadets are built on a foundation of teamwork and contribution to their local community. Damian’s presentation showed them a different perspective of how he uses this ethos in both his industry and every day life. The cadets described this as an inspiring input and greatly benefited those destined to apply for job opportunities in different industries”.
The iKBBI are investing heavily in their educational programme, to include their newly launched iAcademy. Engaging local communities is an important element of the programme according to Damian.
