Technorama supported the CBAA at the 2016 Conference, with a panel titled “Future-proofing your broadcast technologists”. The panel members and moderator all identify as technologists, but critically and atypically, three of the panel members are women. Here are some excerpts from that session:
- How to plant and grow technologists at your station – watch this talk from Technorama’s John Maizels.
- How to maintain your station’s relationship with your technologists – listen to ABC’s Bernadette Young (note: link broken – has been reported to CBAA)
- How do we (and how should we) recognise our community radio technologists? Listen to 3MBS’s Sharon E Eccles.
- Supporting women in community radio technology – listen to Bernadette Young and Sharon E Eccles.
Holly Ransom’s CBAA 2016 plenary
The CBAA 2016 Conference kickoff was amazing. Brian Nankervis’ did such a great job of his keynote opening that the room was thoroughly rampted up. But then he was followed by one of the best plenary presentations ever. Holly Ransom’s key points – “start before you’re ready” and “embed your why in their why” might be two of the most valuable lessons that could be learned by technologists.

This is the presentation from CBAA 2008 in Alice Springs. It’s called “Planting and Growing Technologists at Your Station”, an exploration of how to build a technology team, and what motivates them. The presentation includes an explanation of the Four Drivers of Technologists™, and a map to help you characterise fault reporting and callouts.
