AUTHOR: Inavate

Visitors to ISCEx 2009 were treated to an excellent array of seminar topics and technology providers in the UK’s commercial audio segment this week as they gathered at the Park Inn in Watford, UK.

The day started with a well-attended breakfast panel discussion. The panellists included Roger Gagan from the Watford Chamber of Commerce, Andy South of Clydesdale bank, Vanessa James of SA Law, Ian Gibbon of Aliots Chartered accountants and Stephen Herman from the local Business Link branch. David Hopkins OBE, past president of the ISCE, chaired the session, which was entitled “How to beat a recession”.

The panel were able to offer insight and advice on how to cope with the current economic difficulties from a corporate governance point of view. The issues covered included the importance of communication with your bank and issues around tax, as well as credit control and how to deal with redundancy cases.

Other seminar sessions later in the day included an update on a number of relevant safety standards, AFILS standards and also an interesting talk from David Tyas of Ikon AVS on the challenges of designing PCBs for analogue / digital audio devices.

Ros Wigmore, speaking on behalf of the Institute said: “We were delighted with both the turn out for the event, and in particular the number of new faces attending for the first time.”
