Discussing key topics such as AV and IT industry supply chain issues, to reconfiguring the work and learning environments, the Adapting to a Changing World webcast is a must-attend for AV/IT managers and directors, technology integrators, and CIOs in corporate, government, and higher education.

Wednesday, January 26, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. ET, join me as I moderate a panel of AV/IT industry experts and discuss what is top-of-mind today — Adapting to a Changing World. Every technology manager, director, integrator, CIO, and anyone involved in making decisions about the new working and learning environment needs to have a plan to adapt. 

SUPPLY CHAIN: Some feel the supply chain issue is old news, and if you plan 12 weeks out, everything will be okay. Think again. Learn how some manufacturers are redesigning products to adapt to chip shortages or discontinuing products. And others are well-positioned because they make the parts. 

REFRESH CYCLE: How to plan for a refresh when you don’t know what will be available and when? What equipment is the new “must” in the hybrid workplace and classroom? 

NEAR AND FAR: Going into year three of hybrid environments, some say we aren’t any closer to creating parity. From wireless BYOD, casting just about everything, ensuring speech intelligibility and visual clarity, we discuss what is truly needed to make “hybrid” successful. 

2020 and 2021 HINDSIGHT: Beyond the pandemic, we discuss some assumptions made that didn’t set us up for the long-term.

ATTENDEES: Join the conversation. Bring your questions, share you hero-like successes and 20/20 hindsight—and lessons learned.
