It stresses being pro-active when interacting with senior decision makers, helping them identify communication-related problems where your media tools and expertise could solve these problems and focusing on cost-effective results and outcomes rather than glitz and glitter.
* Marketing Your Shop In-House
Aimed at people who manage in-house video/media facilities. It encourages them to become pro-active mission critical resources instead of just the “AV geeks”.
