The International Women’s Day Podcast
David Kitchener talks to four successful women in the AV industry, to celebrate International women’s day.
“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all embrace equality”.
So, celebrating women's achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is key.

Power Management with GUDE Systems
To the AV integrator, power is everything.
The connection of a system to the mains fires up all sorts of solutions, from lighting and HAVAC through to cinema and music. But how much attention do we actually give to the power source?
All it takes is a spike in power or power cut and all of the integrators hard-earned work requires service visits and, at worst, swapping out of kit. So, to discuss this important topic we are joined by Philipp Gude of GUDE Systems.
