Join the Crew host Corey Moss, Katye McGregor Bennett and Michelle Loret as they welcome their guests:

Adrian Doughty – National Sales Manager at Nureva

Gina Sansivero – Director of Business Development, Education at FSR

Marika Aquino – Managing Partner at Tier PM

We dedicate this podcast, a show about AV, and life – along with this special episode – to the greatest people in any technology stratosphere… the #AVtweeps.

Corey talks about why this is a special episode of the show, and how Katye has been an important part of this ‘The AV Life’ podcast journey as well.  Michelle has been a very important part of the show as well since she joined at the end of January.

And Michelle shows some true feelings on this show…


…no, not those kinds of feelings (it is Michelle Loret y’know).

And Gina won a Convergent AV Radio award – announced on this show! You’ll hear all about it.

The InfoComm 2018 discussion begins with Adrian talking about Nureva and all – or should we say most – that is going on for InfoComm (and there’s more award winner talk involving our PR Ninja…). Corey also asks Adrian to talk about President and CEO Nancy Knowlton and her leadership, along with discussion of the company and their growth (Corey mentions a recent interview with Nancy on Convergent Tech Talk).  Corey talks about how Nancy is a woman in AV who all in the industry need to know.  Adrian also discusses the “collaboration discussion” in the industry along with how Nureva differentiates.

Marika talks about Tier PM, a leading recruiter in AV and IT, what they do in terms of recruiting in the industry, and what they will be doing at InfoComm. Corey asks Marika to talk about her background before she joined the AV industry, as well as how Marika has been recognized in the industry. Marika also mentions where they will be at the show.

Gina discusses her special award, and then talks about what FSR is doing for InfoComm, (as well as UBTech) – specifically furniture. There’s also discussion about Jan Sandri, President at FSR, Inc. (and another great Woman in AV) in terms of how the company has continued to grow and innovate, and Gina mentions how Jan talks about family and “staying true to their roots.”

Next, Corey talks with all about the InfoComm Reception and Networking events. Tier PM is a sponsor of the AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast (Marika talks about it) and FSR is a sponsor of the Tech Managers Reception (Gina talks about this).

Nureva is a global partner and sponsor of the TIDE Conference and Adrian discusses this.

And then finally… FREE BEER!


There’s free beer at InfoComm! This discussion actually leads to a more interesting discussion with all on the show. Tune in for this one.

Sit back, plug in, have some fun with the Crew and their guests as we get on the road to InfoComm ’18 and live…

The AV Life.
