Brad Grimes poses a very interesting question in his recent blog post: ‘Where do AV pros come from?’
It’s a great question – did you know that there are very few Individuals in the 18-24 age range working in the AV world? (See: http://bit.ly/12m0QM3) We’re a bit worried about this so we’re already working with local universities to help develop the next generation of AV and IT engineers. We’ve already had our first talented graduate from Aston University who we’re developing in to a business leader of tomorrow.
Did you know two of our employees are STEM ambassadors too? They are often out and about, very much representing the ‘T’ (Technology) and the ‘E’ (Engineering) to inspire even younger people to join us in their careers.
