Join Joe, Corey, Kym and Kaleo as they welcome some of those superstar women of the AV industry, and Gabe, who we found out comes with every Zoom videoconference (at no extra charge).
All talk about getting into the AV industry, how it happened, and we also found out how Kym became a part of all of this – that it’s really all one person’s fault. Renee we believe texted him immediately during the show.
Kelly talks about the NSCA, Ignite and raising AV industry awareness. Joe talks about how it’s possible – and how it’s all about the industry, and not just commercial or residential. A very good conversation, one that all in the industry should listen to, including what they can do to become a part of the efforts. Michelle mentions the NSCA and BLC, and a little branding confusion ensues.
Next all talk about industry award nominations – yep, more confusion.
You’ll hear about this too:
Then comes discussion of the holidays and Renee drops some big news! No, it has nothing to do with NEC. Gabe, who mostly sat and listened to the whole thing finally talks – and it rhymes with boom, room and zoom (wait, it is Zoom – or maybe even Zoom Rooms).
