Back in 2014 Craig was invited to speak at the submarine cable media launch and said that the undersea cable will be a massive game changer for our region and will set a great foundation for our region to become a significant global player and make a difference in our local economy. 4 years on Craig said he was honored and proud to be invited to be a part of this Sunshine Coast historic event back in December 2019.
