SOLiD to Sponsor and Conduct Training at the CIBET Initiative

(PRWEB) September 20, 2012

SOLiD is sponsoring and leading teaching sessions during the Certified In-Building Engineering Technologist (CIBET) training and certification initiative which takes place September 24 28 in Denver, CO. The program will provide a foundation of knowledge to the in-building radio frequency (RF) engineering community by exposing participants both industry newcomers and veterans to the scientific principles associated with Distributed Antenna System (DAS) deployments through a combination of lecture and hands-on lab experience. Held in conjunction with the Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program at the University of Colorado at Boulder, students will, upon successful completion of the course exam, receive three continuing education credits.

The CIBET program is comprised of lectures and demonstrations from equipment manufacturers and system integrators designed to share practical deployment experiences for addressing unique and challenging venue requirements, merging indoor and outdoor environments, DAS noise impacts, interference sources, mitigation techniques and public-safety waveforms, networks and regulations. An optional workshop curriculum includes DAS deployment fundamentals such as RF propagation, waveforms and signals, link budget analysis, RF coverage, and confidence and capacity planning.

As DAS deployments become increasingly complex to support large-scale projects consisting of multiple wireless operators, high bandwidth capacity needs, convergence of both indoor and outdoor coverage spaces and public-safety communications, the level of sophistication required of the RF engineers who design, install and manage these networks similarly increases, said Seth Buechley, President of SOLiD. The first of its kind, the certification program through the CIBET Initiative ensures that current and future RF engineers will possess the sharpest skillsets to deploy and support mission-critical DAS networks.

SOLiD will train students on filtering techniques required for multi-service DAS deployments in which RF signals used by commercial cellular providers and public-safety communications services need to be properly isolated. SOLiD will also explore how DAS network technology and architecture will likely evolve into a single, all-fiber communications platform on which to plug in myriad services including cellular, public safety, WiFi and other applications such as RFID, building automation and more.

Accelerate launched – major internal communication training initiative to improve comms practitioner strategy skills

(PRWEB UK) 5 July 2012

The Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) and communication training specialist Gatehouse Academy have joined forces to launch Accelerate a fast-track masterclass that puts communicators on the path to success when tackling strategic internal communication.

As internal communicators move on in their career, what makes them stand out from the crowd is their ability to translate organisational objectives into meaningful communication strategy and implement this smoothly, taking senior managers and colleagues with them.

The Accelerate masterclass has been designed to help practitioners achieve just that, providing a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of strategic internal communication within a short time frame two blocks of two days.

Subjects covered include: the fundamentals of planning; hardwiring communication to organisational objectives; choosing and using the right channels; driving engagement through leaders; becoming a trusted advisor; leading organisations through transition; managing projects effectively; creativity for communicators; and research and evaluation.

This internal communication course is fast-paced, interactive and pragmatic with a focus on equipping delegates to deliver practical solutions while also covering the vital theory. It includes techniques and insights to fine-tune those vital people skills.

Going forward, the programme offers ongoing benefits and networking opportunities for course alumni.

In addition to the training expertise of the two organisations, Accelerate is able to draw on the detailed competency framework developed by the Institute in its capacity as the professional body for IC practitioners and Gatehouses extensive experience as a leading full-service agency of advising major clients in the UK and overseas.

Institute chief executive Steve Doswell said: Internal communication has a higher status than ever before but, for the function and individual practitioners to reach their full potential, they must make a genuine contribution to achieving organisational objectives and add real value whatever the challenges. Accelerate provides key knowledge and confidence required to make this happen.

We are delighted to be working with Gatehouse on this programme which is fully integrated with our other training and development offerings and further contributes to the Institutes objective of providing learning solutions for a spectrum of career stages and circumstances.

Gatehouse director Lee Smith commented: This is an exciting collaboration focused on providing delegates with practical tools and techniques, alongside robust theory, that they can use from day one back in the workplace.

Considerable emphasis is placed on people skills as the ability to persuade, influence and ultimately become a trusted advisor is something that really makes a successful communicator stand out.

The first Accelerate course will run in central London in October.

In addition to being available as an open course, the programme can also be offered on an exclusive basis for in-house teams.

The Institute of Internal Communication is the only UK professional body solely dedicated to supporting internal communication practitioners throughout their career, and promoting best practice in the function, through training and development, events, awards, networking and the development of knowledge and research.

Gatehouse Academy is the dedicated training arm of fast-growing communication consultancy Gatehouse. Launched in 2009, it provides training, coaching and professional development support for professional communicators, line managers and aspiring leaders across a wide range of sectors, including central government, financial and professional services, FMCG and oil and gas.

Mickey Mouse Club Alum Dale Godboldo Launches Global Initiative To Support Youth In Arts And Entertainment

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2012

Dale Godboldo Enterprises, Inc. (DGE) announced today a broad-based initiative to develop platforms for young talent to excel in the arts, by partnering with financial institutions, production studios, educational institutions, and not for profit organizations to produce globally distributed content that, much like the Mickey Mouse Club, will serve as breeding grounds for young talent while providing scholarships and mentoring programs dedicated to advancing the skills of young creators.

Dale Godboldo was a cast member on the 90′s Mickey Mouse Club alongside Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, JC Chasez and NBC’s “The Voice” finalist Tony Lucca. Over a 20 year period, Godboldo appeared as an actor in over 130 episodes of television and films, and in business managed millions in project financing, media design and distribution contracts.

“Our experience on the Club was unique in that our creativity was nurtured on a daily basis and backed by a million dollar production budget per week,” says Godboldo, “That kind of structure, support and training is a missing link when trying to understand the later successes of so many from that show, and why I am passionate about giving young and dynamic artists similar opportunities.”

Unique to DGE’s production plans is its commitment to preparing young artists for long-term careers in the entertainment industry, both in front of and behind the camera. DGE’s strategies include building infrastructures for training and project financing, as well as providing guidance in managing success.

DGE will focus on creating both mainstream and art-house projects traversing music, film, television and new media. Projects and strategic alliances will be announced throughout the remainder of the year.
