Following GV's Technical Sales Conference that took place over the weekend, Dan Victory, Nigel Thomas, Matt Price, Richard Watts, Jain McGarty, Kim Liddle and Joanne Stewart grabbed the opportunity to explore the island's fantastic capital to do some Christmas shopping. The outing followed a hugely successful weekend for the team. With the group working solidly at the conference to focus on the year ahead as well as shaping GV's technical future, the entire GV Multimedia team enjoyed lunches and dinners at some of the island's amazing hotels and restaurants before going on a guided tour of Jersey. Wrapping up their weekend by taking in the sights of St. Helier, the team relaxed in Jersey's incredibly welcoming capital and carried out Christmas shopping in style before heading back to the mainland.

GV Multimedia continues to win awards as Hounslow branch is commended for their stellar work at Kingston University and their integration of Sharp equipment. GV Sales Director Kristian Cutting was delighted to accept the award for Most Innovative Project - Education for the team's efforts throughout the extensive project over the summer.

GV Multimedia’s work was recently spotted on the BBC’s recent documentary At the Exeter Northcott. The programme focussed on the theatre’s new artistic director’s efforts to turn the Northcott around after audience figures dropped and financial pressures took their toll on productions.

The documentary served as a fantastic look behind the scenes of the theatre and the efforts undertaken that gave the Northcott a new lease of life.

Over the past year, GV Multimedia's Hounslow team has developed a healthy relationship with Kingston University. Working with the university to develop their facilities, the team has worked tirelessly throughout the summer in the design and installation of an impressive campus-wide AV system. Including a record-breaking installation on Panasonic projectors, the work at the university has been notable for a variety of factors. As such, the team always appreciates such positive feedback from our customers and so would like to take the opportunity to thank IT Project Manager Caroline Cabraal for her recent kind words:

Exeter’s Sales Manager Steve Grimes remains as characteristically calm and composed as ever when faced with cameras on the door at the AV Awards which took place at the Grosvenor Hotel in London last month. Eschewing the option of a brief smile at the lens before walking on, Steve instead grasped the opportunity for stardom with both hands and stole focus for a few snaps while Divisional Director Richard Watts looked on in awe, unable to curb the South West Sales Manager’s bountiful enthusiasm for self-promotion.

Despite Steve’s inimitable presence at the event, the GV team sadly didn’t win the Best Education Project award for the Exeter branch’s superb work at Cardiff University’s Business School (CARBS). Still, an enjoyable evening was had by all. The work at CARBS marked the third time that GV have been a finalist for the Best Education Project prize. The first nomination was back in 2011 for the group’s work at Bournemouth University’s Kimmeridge House while the following year, the Exeter team received a High Commendation for the all-encompassing AV system designed and installed into Falmouth University’s Academy of Innovation and Research.
