The guests joined in four separate groups, here in Part 1 you’ll hear those in groups one and two.
In group one we have:
Randy Pagnan – President/Owner, and Brandy Alvarado – Marketing and Business Development Manager at rp Visual Solutions
Penny Sitler – Marketing Manager at Draper, Inc.
Adrian Doughty – National Sales Manager at Nureva
Apryl Lamberti – Director of Business Development – Hospitality at Almo Professional A/V
Corey hosts the first group as Adrian Doughty begins by talking about some of the big things taking place with Nureva, Randy and Brandy (who were re-named for the show) talk about the business as well as a recent big project, Apryl Lamberti discusses a number of things happening in Almo Professional A/V’s Hospitality Division, and Penny Sitler talks about some of the big occurrences for Draper, from the rebrand to the launch of their new website.
An “unplanned guest” joins in, and the group gets to answer a trivia question about a company that has been in the industry for a very long time. Some of the best outfits and holiday scenes took place in this group as well – George judges contests on this show including best ugly sweater and best holiday scene (and he added another along the way).
Group two brought us two InfoComm 2017 Award Winners, 4 CTS-Duals, and a woman who flies drones professionally and may have qualified as a wiring nightmare.
Bill Nattress (CTS-D, CTS-I) – Director of Channel Strategy – Paging at Biamp Systems (CTS Holder of the Year)
James Maltese (CTS-D, CTS-I) – President at Audio Visual Resources (Educator of the Year)
Paul Zielie (CTS-D, CTS-I) – Manager, Enterprise Solutions at Harman Professional
Jake Corlett (CTS-D, CTS-I) – Regional Manager – North Central at Biamp Systems
Christina Engh – COO at UAS Solutions Group
Katye takes over hosting group two (after keeping her dog Jackson from grabbing her antlers) talking with all about how they are, what they’re doing and why Christina is dressed the way she is.
Last year’s ugly sweater winner Jake Corlett decided to let someone else win this year. Paul talks about what he had to leave to join all on the show, James might be looking to go for the contest wins, and brings a very good AV and data conversation to the show. Bill discusses how he’s winding down for the year, and talks wine/AV and music too. A true AV and drones trivia question for this group, listen in.
