Robert Simpson says, “I am pleased to contribute to InfoComm’s education and professional development sessions again this year. Electrosonic places a great deal of emphasis on learning and developing our own staff, and I am delighted to be able to share my knowledge and expertise to help AV professionals to continue to raise the ‘AV Bar’.”
The Women of InfoComm Network (WIN) is committed to promoting and empowering women in the AV and IT industries. “The Women of InfoComm Network breakfast at ISE will explore what women – and men – in the industry can do to encourage women into successful long-term careers in technology,” explains Betsy Jaffe, Vice President of Communications at InfoComm International.
Sarah will host the breakfast and share experiences and highlights from her 20-year career in technology. Diana Danziger, an organisational development and leadership consultant, will lead an interactive session aimed at promoting women in technology. The session concludes with networking and a roundtable discussion to solicit input from participants about potential WIN activities in Europe.
“Having worked in the technology industry for almost 20 years along with the roles I hold at Electrosonic and InfoComm, I feel it is my responsibility to empower more women in the AV and IT industries to reach their full potential”, said Sarah. “Besides being a great networking opportunity, the breakfast will be fun, interesting and dynamic. I believe this will be the first of many such events to help raise the profile of women in AV and encourage more to join and become engaged.”
