Creating Balance… and Still Learning

Creating Balance… and Still Learning

In two of my previous posts (here and here), I had discussed my position of combining Sales & Marketing into a cohesive group through consistent detailed communication and collaboration. After discovering that sales people are consistently poor intra-company communicators and marketing people can be annoyingly persistent (LOVE both my sales and marketing roles at RelampIt), […]

Networks and Referral Webs

I spoke as part of a seminar today that was called “30 Seconds to Success” for my local Chamber of Commerce.  It was focusing on the first 30 seconds of meeting someone- whether it is a business meeting, a networking event, a round table, etc. My section, in particular, was addressing the well known (but […]

2012: A Year To Be Proud Of

This year my company, RelampIt, celebrates its 5th year in business.  SWEET!

(Wait- don’t stop […]

Green AV: Beyond Energy Management

Ok- who said Green is passé? Granted, the term “Green” may be getting kind of annoying.  And the references to our childhood, redundant (poor Kermit doesn’t get royalties, ya know!) But we, as the AV industry, haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of Green. It will go beyond sucking less energy and reducing or carbon footprint. Heck, […]

Where’s the Communication?

Background info:  We had been trying to contact InfoComm’s PR department for well over a month (since she canceled a meeting with us). We respectfully reached out a number of times via both email and phone. My frustration finally got the better of me and I sent out an SOS to @InfoComm on twitter, not entirely expecting a response.  […]
