How personal branding can speak for you when you’re “muted”

An afternoon with the worlds leading AV influencers and technologists

We're inviting our Midwich customers to join us for a truly unique in-person event happening on Thursday 4th November at Innovation House, the UK's largest multi-brand experience centre. We've hand-picked two of the world's leading global AV influencers, Chris Neto and Tim Albright, and partnered them with Midwich's AV technologist, Jenny Hicks to bring you an afternoon of unforgettable knowledge, interactivity, support and networking.

PLUS It wouldn't be a Midwich event without getting your hands on the latest in world-leading meeting room and WFH technology solutions from a handful of supporting vendor partners.


We want this event to provide real value to our supporting vendors and attending customers, so we're limiting the number to only 30 Midwich customers, on a first-come, first-served basis.


"Can you hear me now? How personal branding can speak for you when you’re “muted” 

The seminar, hosted in-person by global AV influencers Chris Neto (Starin) and Tim Albright (AV Nation), will cover topics around how to promote yourself online and generate your very own competitive edge. Think of this session as a beginners guide to becoming an AV influencer. Chris and Tim are passionate about helping others on how to better evangelise their AV message by blending social media, industry expertise, Technology while adding a humorous personal touch.

Is it time to update your profile picture?

Attendees will be offered a free professional headshot photograph from our resident in-house photographer at Innovation House.

Do you want to see some world-leading meeting room and WFH technology solutions? 

It wouldn’t be a Midwich event without some technology on show.

We’ll be demonstrating the importance of communication and how Midwich can create solutions for both the office (boardroom setup) and the home. We’ve chosen five supporting vendors to create two live environments. Both setups will be in different locations at Innovation House so your customers will see how they work seamlessly with one another. You can ask all your burning UC&C questions, have a play and chat with the vendors.

What's hot and what's not in 2022 - future AV trends update! 

Our global head of technology and co-presenter of Midwich Live, Jenny Hicks will be presenting a future technology trends update on the day. As part of this session, Tim will be moderating a Q&A session between you the audience, Jenny and Chris - this session is not to be missed! 

Jenny has been responsible for driving our technology strategy, so usually what she says will be big next year, usually is! Take note, this could form your 2022 end-user technology strategy.
