CEO’s MESSAGE
Cable and Wireless Seychelles (‘CWS’) came into existence in 1893, 125 years ago. Its existence and history is tightly woven into the cultural fabric of Seychelles, making CWS the most iconic business. Almost everyone in Seychelles has a close friend or family who is associated with CWS. CWS has evolved with the people of Seychelles. It has been ever present through easy and hard times, through peace and war times, through happy and sad times, from colonial to independent times; always serving Seychellois and keeping them connected to each other and to the world. CWS is not just a service provider, it forms part of the kindred Seychellois community. This is why CWS cares deeply about Seychelles and has touched and moved generations not only by being an operator but also through its extensive Foundation and CSR activities.
If you wanted to send a message from Seychelles to a family member or business partner overseas in 1893, the fastest way that you would do this is through a telegram message. The alternative was by ship which took several weeks or months. The telegraph enabled family members in Seychelles to inform those abroad of the birth of a new baby, the passing of those dear to us.
CEO’s Message
2


It enabled merchants to place important last-minute orders for goods to be put on a ship headed towards Seychelles. Technological innovation came to Seychelles in 1954 in the form of voice calls whereby one would place call from her house to be patched (switched) to the recipient in another location in Seychelles through copper network that expanded to cover most of the country. With excitement and happiness, families would visit the telephone exchange once a week to place international calls to loved ones overseas. Automatic switching of calls defined a higher level of customer experience. CWS not only led all of this from the front, it also led the introduction of satellite communications, mobile telephony, fibre optic undersea and land cables and even radio entertainment.
Today, in these times of mobile data and big data, of Facebook, social media and YouTube videos, of blogging and tweeting, of WhatsApp and Skyping, CWS connects Seychellois: To the things that matter to them; To the people that matter to them; To the content that matter to them. CWS connects lives to create moments, special moments, moments that move our customers, moments that move us, moments that make us proud to be CWS. By doing so, CWS makes people happy. CWS has evolved from being in the business of telegraphs and telecommunications, CWS is now in the business of HAPPINESS. CWS continues to demonstrate that it cares for its community by leading the way with the best quality services. It is the effort of each and every single one of you; from those on the front desk, to those implementing projects, to those in the homes fixing faults, to those behind the lines maintaining our networks. The CWS family all work together in delivering happiness to our customers.
This yearbook documents our evolution over the last 125 years and most importantly celebrates the hard work of our staff. I would like to personally thank all of you; past and present, for your service, dedication and loyalty. This is what makes CWS what it is today. Looking to the future with 125 years of experience in delivering quality service to our customers. I feel like we will continue to develop, we are in the everlasting business of bringing happiness to our customers. No one knows Seychelles better - The choice is clear!
