What's Cooking At Listen Technologies

Publish date:

There was a family atmosphere in the kitchen and dining areas of Listen Technologies' headquarters here in Salt Lake City on June 7. The company was hosting an open house event to celebrate the expansion of its facilities, and the extra room was appreciated. The crowds of guests spilled into hallways, a new conference room, and the new courtyard seating area where at least one clever guest used a barbecue to turn shrimp cocktail into a grilled shrimp appetizer.

The cooking talents of Listen employees are continually put the test in the company's headquarters, where a full kitchen has inspired staff members to cook meals as a group. But it was more than a culinary affair at the Listen open house. Tours of the newly expanded warehouse occurred continuously, and visitors got a peek at the new technical center for product support and quality assurance, as well as new fulfillment operations facilities.

"When Listen originally moved into this location it was with the hopes of continuing growth to support an expansion of this kind," noted Listen president Russell Gentner in a press release issued before the event. "Listen's success could not have been possible without the support of our families, friends, customers, and valued partners. The open house is a great way for us to say thank you and enjoy some time together."

U.S. Business Booms At ISE

After every big trade show event, questions about mood on the show floor and how it pertains to business growth are at the forefront of everyone's mind. Well, I can safely report that the mood at the Integrated Systems Europe ( ISE ) show last week in Amsterdam was ecstatic. And I don't mean trade-show-press-release e

IT for AV People: What Actually Matters?

by Danny Maland Todd McCandless recently authored an article for this site called “ The Khaki Invasion .” In his piece, McCandless set forth a number of strategies for dealing with the reality of IT having kingship over AV in the world of the information hyper-mesh. “Hyper-Mesh” is, as far as I know, my own term.

I Know You Understand What You THINK It Does, But...

by Danny Maland I made it all the way through high school without actually using my assigned locker. I spent four years hauling every book and supply needed for each day in backpacks and handle bags, sometimes two at a time. There was one particular year where I broke the strap on a rather nice, black leather bag th
