Australian cricket legend, David ‘Boonie’ Boon, hosted a cocktail party recently to celebrate the launch of SecureTel — the telco formerly known as BeSecure.
About 200 guests gathered in the Orbit Bar, atop Australia Square, as Boonie regaled them with highlights from his swashbuckling career as a top-order Australian batsman.
His alleged record of drinking more than 30 cans of Victoria’s best on a flight to London didn’t get a mention, but a full lap of the revolving restaurant (which takes quite some time) was completed as Boonie told tales covering everything from facing bouncers in the West Indies to toned-down versions of famous sledging incidents.
SecureTel managing director, David Stevens, said the event was a worthy showcase of the company’s products and services.
“SecureTel may be a new name, but the business has been with us for more than five years now,” he said. “We have built the company from a boutique ISP into the largest secured telco in the country.”
Stevens said the name change and corporate image were essential to move to the next level of business — a full service telecommunications company.
