Episode 76: AVIXA Women and the Success of the DMV Group March Madness Event, Women and Men in Sales/Working in Manufacturing vs. Integration, and InfoComm 18



Join Corey (Moss) and Cory (Schaeffer) as they co-host this one along with returning (for one night only) Crew member Taylor Meyer as they welcome their guests:

Megan Riddle – Regional Sales Manager, Mid-Atlantic at Planar
Brad Orme – Regional Sales Manager, Mid-Atlantic at Planar
Alexis LaBrois – Systems Consultant at Avitecture, inc.
Scott Durham – Enterprise System Consultant at Yorktel

The first Corey/Cory co-hosted ‘The AV Life’ show focuses on an AVIXA Women’s Council event in DC Metro put together by the DMV Group – Megan Riddle and Alexis La Broi are leaders of the group (and put this event together), and other great AV women in the area are a part of it. Corey was at the event and detailed it on Convergent AV – here is a picture of some of the women in attendance (including Heidi Voorhees and Amanda Eberle Boyer with AVIXA). 

Brad Orme was there of course as he works for Planar (and also helped Megan with the planning) and Scott Durham was one of the men in attendance. All of the guests begin talking about what they do which leads to an interesting conversation about working in integration vs manufacturing (for Megan, Brad and Alexis who have been on both sides), and Brad also talks about the advantage of having the Planar showroom in VA – where the event took place – for integrators and end users. Scott also talks about keys being the demo for the customer, as well as the integrator’s relationship with the vendor. Cory adds to this in terms of some end user specified project timelines and expectations impacting both integrator and manufacturer.  And of course, Taylor Meyer talks robotics and how this can be of help for the manufacturers. 

Next came discussion of the March Madness event, and Megan and Alexis talk about putting the event together – coordination, inviting the guests, and why it took place at March Madness time. Cory talks about the mission of the Council meetings and events, the connections that are made at them, and even business getting done. Cory also talks about the AVIXA Women’s Breakfast at InfoComm. Megan also discusses women in sales and engineering and their impact on the industry through the AVIXA Women’s Council. Alexis also talks about a young woman who attended the event who is looking for a career in AV (her name is Bella, she is front row, far right in the picture). Scott also talks about the AVIXA Women’s Council and events. Alexis also talks about the next event coming up with Integrate Baltimore. 

Finally, all talk about InfoComm and what they are expecting at the show (and something about a shoe game at AVIXA). 

Sit back, plug in and enjoy our third AVIXA Women’s episode with some of the great women and men in the industry as we live…
