Revolabs Introduces Academy of Communication Video Series

July 12, 2017

Earlier this week, Revolabs announced that it has partnered with Julian Treasure, a well known TED speaker, author and chairman of The Sound Agency, in order to help both individuals and businesses understand the effect that sound and audio can have on corporate communications.

Treasure is, in fact, a gem in the conferencing world. His TED Talks have been viewed for 40 million times and his latest one, “How to speak so that people want to listen,” is one of the top 10 TED talks of all time. Needless to say, Revolabs struck gold by partnering with him. However, the partnership makes complete sense because Treasure wants to stress the importance of having quality audio in a business setting, and Revolabs wants to provide customers with said audio.

As the Revolabs announcement points out, focusing on sound allows people to better consider how they listen, speak and design their environments. Treasure feels the same way, stating, “Good sound is good business - and sound communication is essential for any business to succeed.”

So what can we expect from this new partnership between two sound enthusiasts? The pair has set up an eight part series, titled “Academy of Communication,” which will address a wide variety of topics related to audio. As the announcement states, “We’ll dive into the science of sound, the effects sound has on us, speaking and listening for effectiveness, and lastly, how sound plays into business environments. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of sound and tips to optimize your meetings and collaboration spaces.”

The series will progress as follows:

  • Part 1: The Nature of Sound
  • Part 2: The Four Effects of Sound
  • Part 3: Listening
  • Part 4: Cross Modalities
  • Part 5: The Human Voice
  • Part 6: Sound Quality Matters
  • Part 7: Four Steps to an Effective Meeting
  • Part 8: Sound Business Communication

Anyone interested in learning more about the benefits of quality audio to their organization can access Part 1 HERE. Once you’ve signed up, the rest of the series will be delivered to you as each part launches.
