Troy Peters, CTS

You may be the smartest person in the room, but how do you communicate that? How do you communicate in general when the person you need to communicate with can’t understand your ‘language’? By using simple communication tools and channels we’ll develop your network of potential future resources, potential employers, and possible minions.

• What is today’s accepted standard when it comes to communication? Email, text, Facebook, Snapchat? Heaven forbid we meet face-to-face!
• The Communication Deviation
   o Deviation: The action of departing from an established course or accepted standard.
• How do we communicate? How do we miscommunicate?
• The Networking Renormalization
   o Who you know means everything. Who you don’t know means even more.
• The Internal External Paradox
• The Self Transmogrification
   o Transmogrify: To change or alter greatly and often with grotesque or humorous effect
   o Discover how to overcome shyness in the group situation

Troy Peters PhotoTroy's background began in motion picture production before migrating to association show management. There he took on the role of managing the Audio Visual logistics at their dozens of events across the globe.

Holding city-wide multi-day conferences with upwards of 20,000 attendees he quickly grew frustrated with not knowing AV. In 2010 he had enough and pursued his knowledge of live event AV technology by becoming a Certified Technology Specialist through Infocomm International. By learning the ins and outs of live event technology he was able talk-the-talk and help the association be a more proactive player in the direction of the ultimate attendee experience.

Troy is currently the VP of Marketing & Business Development with Video West, a national AV provider based in Phoenix, Arizona. He also sits on the MPI Arizona Chapter Executive Board as the VP of Communication and Chairs the Infocomm International Item Writing Committee.

The life portion of his work-life balance consists of family time with his wife and twin four-year-olds living by their family motto to Promote Laughter, Practice Kindness, and Pursue Adventure.
