AV Power Up! – Episode 53: AV/IT? IT/AV? The Battle Rages On…

AVPowerUp_750x400Join the Crew: Corey Moss, Katye McGregor Bennett, Johnny Mota, Stacy Kringlen, Victoria Barela, Deron Pinchback and Justin Watts as the welcome their guests:

Scott McGarrigle – Founder, President and CTO at Utelogy

John Greene – VP, Sales and Marketing at Advanced AV

Leonard Suskin – Sr. Consultant at Shen Milsom & Wilke

On this episode we talk with our guests, John Greene and Leonard Suskin who have been terrific guests of ours on multiple shows (we’ve already lost count with John) and in his first appearance Scott McGarrigle, where he tells us all about the company, their software-defined AV solution and being the IT side of the business – this all leading into the night’s main discussion based on Corey’s rAVe blog:

AV/IT? IT/AV? Just Where Are We These Days?   

Some great perspectives on cloud, network, the relationship of AV and IT and more from the guests as well as the Crew here. We also talk about an Advanced AV blog New Style IT: Are Your Employees “Tech Empowered?” with some very interesting discussion about social media to go with it. Guess where among the four major tech categories John put that one (as if you had to think about that one)?

Along with a great show – it’s the return of the Tier PM Hot Jobs! Along with the jobs, we talked about a good AV friend who is on a job search.  Please listen in to find out more about her.

We also welcome our 7th (and final?) Crew member Justin Watts of Google who impressed us so much as a guest on the previous episode, we convinced him to join us. Didn’t hurt that the Crew also chipped in and bought him his own personal nap pod.

What? You want a nap pod of your own? Well, lay back on the couch, plug in those earbuds, imagine you too work for Google and…
