Celebrating 10 Years
2023 marks “10 Years in Business” for Skills Junction, We are ecstatic and very proud to be celebrating this momentous milestone in our company’s short history. Skills Junction has grown from strength-to- strength, delivering “best in class” performance, taking on an increasing number of clients nationwide while constantly innovating to stay ahead of the evolving field of education, training and skills development.
Where it all Begun
Skills Junction was established in 2013 as an idea that flourished and began trading from a blackberry smartphone, relying heavily on sweat equity, personal debt, and customer funding to provide the initial capital with the vision of creating a training company that was a class above the rest.
Trial and Error
Trial and error is a popular and commonly used catchphrase, but one that is loaded with profound impact. Without trial and error, there is no possibility of innovation. It is the many attempts and failures that eventually reveal the solution to scale, sometimes in an unexpected way. This has been our firsthand experience at Skills Junction, as we maintained our goal and lived true to our slogan “Your Development is Our Driving Force.”
Skills Junction has weathered and survived many hurdles, including bankruptcy. During times of financial turbulence and poor consumer confidence, we used multiple strategies to keep the dream alive, employing a multi-pronged approach that places a heavy emphasis on standing out from the crowd by differentiating Skills Junction from the competition through innovation, diverse product offering, and reducing costs whilst upholding par excellence standards.
Opportunity Favors the Prepared
It was the Roman philosopher Seneca who first uttered these poignant words, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” and the aphorism has become a guiding principle at Skills Junction. Our unwavering commitment to quality is inherent in all that we do. We are relentless in our efforts to develop successful learning activities, exceptional stakeholder experience along with unique marketing campaigns, and these are critical areas in which we invest, yielding remarkable results, and repeat business.
The Next 10 Years…
We live in an era where technology is advancing at an unprecedented rate, and as a growing business, Skills Junction is constantly on a path of continuous improvement, exploring new technologies, and value creation, in order to continue exceeding stakeholder requirements and expectations.
Our training and skills development portfolio has delivered a wide range of services to hundreds of clients over the years, which has required a lot of hard work, dedication and consistency.
All of this has led us to where we are today, celebrating ten rewarding years in the training sector… and hoping for many more decades!!
A special thank you to our fantastic team (past and present) for all of their hard work and dedication – and to the many amazing clients and suppliers we have had the pleasure of working alongside.
