Andrew Saywell – 10 years at Tavcom Training

With so much change over the last few months, we are delighted to share some positivity with you all; our very own Andrew Saywell is today celebrating his ten year anniversary with Tavcom Training!

Andrew is someone who always goes the extra mile, he is always on-hand to offer the best possible advice to learners, and he certainly works incredibly hard behind the scenes to ensure that everything is all working smoothly.

Sales and Marketing Director Sarah Hayward-Turton has worked with Andrew for 5 years and adds:

“Ten years in a career in technology means that Andrew has seen huge changes and advances in the systems Tavcom teach about. Andrew’s total commitment to put the customer first is where he has gained his reputation with learners across the globe as being their go-to person for whatever they need. 
The decade milestone is one to be celebrated in any business, but especially for Andrew who dedicates so much effort and time into doing the very best; not just for clients but his colleagues as well. On behalf of everyone at Tavcom and the Linx International Group, thank you, Andrew, for all you do.
Congratulations on this achievement, and for your valued contribution to the security industry.”

We also wanted to take this opportunity to see how Andrew feels over the past 10 years, what has changed and what could change over the next 10 years. Here is what Andrew had to say:

Q) 10 years at Tavcom Training –  how does that feel?

A) I can’t quite believe it, but today, I’m celebrating an important 10-year anniversary. The 1st July 2010, was the day I joined Tavcom Training and was so pleased to become part of this amazing company with its incredible team of staff and tutors. Tavcom Training was created to educate and train the security industry, and over my years with them, we continue to change lives by providing credible and practical hands-on training courses and continue to be the place to go for technical security training. I really can’t wait to see what happens over the next 10 years! 

Q) What have been your highlights at Tavcom over the last 10 years?

A) Highlights, there have been loads – the development of our new teaching facilities in both the UK and overseas, all of the shows IFSEC, the UK wide Professional Security Magazine Conferences & Exhibitions, AUCSO, CCTV User Group, The Security Event, the BEST show in London where the best part of the job is always meeting with fellow security professionals.  The job has taken me around the world from Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia to Singapore and Botswana to mention a few, where we have run our courses but its always the learners that have really shaped the courses and have been part of creating some fantastic memories. 

Q) What’s the biggest change you’ve seen?

A) The continually evolving technology in our industry from analogue to HD Analogue and IP, and the realisation of the importance of cybersecurity, analytics, biometrics and deep learning

Q) What do you think the next 10 years could look like?

A)  The past few months have shown the importance of online training, this will continue to involve at a pace, but the demand for practical workshop training I’m sure will remain at the forefront of what we do – putting that theoretical teaching into practice by getting hands-on with today’s technologies


From everyone at Tavcom Training and The Linx International Group, we’re thrilled to celebrate such an important milestone with Andrew! He has shown time and time again what a true asset he is to our company and we’re very thankful for all his work over the last 10 years and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
