Interview with Robbie Ladgrove

How did you become a Tech Specialist?

I started in the Telstra store in Geelong as a sales consultant and then moved into a position in the Tech Bar where I developed my skills and came to appreciate the more technical side of things. I moved across to ConnectTel about three months ago and I’m enjoying working with new clients and the ConnectTel team.


 
What's the best thing about your job?

Getting to play with the latest technology and learning everyday about new technology and where things are going. I also enjoy helping other people to appreciate and use technology more.


 
What gadget could you never live without?

My phone (HTC) because I can do everything with it. I use it for work emails, internet searching, blogs, watching video clips, listening to music, buying products online. It integrates everything I do - my social life, work, appointments. I’d be lost without it. 

 
Favourite thing to do in spare time?


I like to go fishing every few days. Queens Bridge is my favourite spot. It helps me relax and get away from everything for a while. I always go alone and it’s nice to have some tranquil time. I also enjoy surfing and all other outdoor activities.

 
What's the best advice you could pass on?

Don’t be scared of technology and use it to your advantage. Don’t be afraid to research it. Never stop learning, and never stop thinking that you don’t need to learn.


I didn’t come from technical background which shows that anyone can do it. You don’t have to be a genius to be tech-savvy. You just have to enjoy it and enjoy learning about it.
