Heather Sidorowicz – President/Owner at Southtown Audio/Video
John Greene – Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Advanced AV
Bobby Swartz – Director of Marketing and Development at Starin Marketing
– And a special surprise call-in at the beginning of the show.
InfoComm is over and The Crew is back, as they and their guests came to this show really happy – or overtired and punchy after a week in Orlando. We think the choice is obvious.
Heather Sidorowicz, a great woman in AV and the first @The_AVLife Twitter follower selected to be a summer guest of the show (on the summer solstice no less), brings her commercial and resi world knowledge to the this episode as the well-known owner of an AV integration company in upstate New York. The best thing about Heather is that she brings the tech knowledge, and the Chi (@tech_chi to be exact). In fact she leads us in a special session which makes everyone feel better. Well, almost everyone (we’re not sure about that caller).
John Greene, who you’ll find after listening to this episode comes with every episode of The AV Life that you purchase (a terrific value at $0), brings the #AVtweeps wise man view of InfoComm to the show and if you stick around till the end you may just learn a thing or two from him. Or you’ll wonder why you’ve listened to every episode of every show he’s ever done in AV podcasting.
Bobby Swartz gets all dressed up for this one, though he eventually realized it’s an audio podcast (talk about confused). Katye took a screenshot for us just to show everyone how Bobby dressed for this special occasion:
Top row – Corey Moss, Katye McGregor Bennett, second row – Taylor Meyer, John Greene, third row – Justin Watts, Heather Sidorowicz, fourth row – Ruben Romero, Bobby Swartz.
The conversation theme for the show – of course InfoComm 2017. Heather brings her viewpoints and opinions as an integrator as well as a writer for Residential Systems, John also talks about what impressed him in terms of tech and more, and maybe some of what didn’t, and Bobby talks about all that Starin did there, as well as his thoughts at his 10th InfoComm show.
And of course, you get that humor the Crew brings – and they influence the guests too. Though as everyone knows John needs no influence, he brings his own whole brand of humor. As for Bobby, we get our first listen to his, umm, humor.
We’re back, we’re rested and ready to roll – so sit back, plug in, put your feet up and get ready to break through with the Crew as we live…
