This week we invited Michael Stillone Senior Field Sales Manager from Sonos Australia who discussed the newest Sonos Ray Soundbar. 

“We made the strategic choice to make everything all white and all black. But this makes it a lot harder to manufacture. You’re dealing with many different materials that sit next to each other, and all those parts have to match so that the outcome looks very clean and elegant. These colours are long-lasting and not super trend sensitive. If you think about Shadow Black or Lunar White, they’re very neutral colours. There’s longevity around colour choice, but there’s also this longevity around durability and making sure that from a technical perspective, these products last a long time.”

– Kitty Suidman, the Design Director of Colour, Material, Finish (CMF) and Product Sustainability at Sonos

Also on the show this week, we had Professor Theo Farrell Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student and Academic Life) from University of Wollongong and shared the an innovative new program for a new generation of cyber security professionals. 

Australia’s brightest young minds now have a unique opportunity to hone their craft at a landmark Cyber Academy, which aims to bolster the nation’s cyber security workforce and help combat the growing threat of online attacks.
