RANT #03: Must be aware of our choice of words


“Words are free. It’s how you use them that may cost you.” – Unknown

In this 3rd rant brought to you by Events: demystified Podcast, I am repeating myself, not because I’ve got nothing better to do, but because I just ran into a similar situation in which the AV supplier I was working with used the “AV guys” term several times during our conversation, even as I was visibly annoyed by how unaware they were and I couldn’t wait to explain why them using those were in that context felt like an insult to me and all (not many, but still – and why is that I wonder?!) the amazing female AV techs that I have worked with for the past almost two decades of AV production. And if I must repeat myself like a broken record until everyone gets the memo, let it be so! 

And side note, the NEW series: “She said WHAT? The Rant Series” –  is where I go off the caff and say it as it is, tackling anything and everything in the AV production, technology, and event industry that not a lot of people are willing to talk about.
