@TimothyTroast @MikeSlamer @chris_neto Demographics have shifted just as life spans increase. The traditional model of retire at 65 worked well when the average person lived to 70. Working longer hasn't been normalized yet but it will...even in France
@DwayneSmithAV Awesome photos! Love the art. My grandfather was in the RAF, didn't fly but was part of the ground crew for Spitfires during the Battle of Britain.

Robin Williams explains the 2008 banking crisis, found by WSB:
@chris_neto I agree with you. I have a daughter who's 23 and parents who are boomers. Glue that holds it together or bridge that spans the differences? That's our role now
@chris_neto Absolutely. At JAV the youngest is 21, oldest 67. Incredible difference in outlook, up bringing, expectations. I'm Gen X, roughly in the middle
@chris_neto Maybe the company began to grow considerably in the last 5 years and this is a by product. Side note, inter generational management is a real thing. #AVintheAM
@Vegas_AV_Ace I'm going for 2500...
@barryjgrossman @_AVAP @chris_neto Coding is now being integrated into the new curriculum here in Ontario as early as Grade 1. Initial concepts and math. Second part of that needs to be normalizing trades at an early age. #AVintheAM
@brittdice Agreed, it can't be dictated from the top down. It is critical that leadership adhere to it and be seen to adhere. Lead by example. #AVintheAM
@TimothyTroast @chris_neto Agreed. Skills shortage, yes, and those can be taught to talented people. #AVintheAM
@chris_neto Apprenticeship for initial skills development. Mentorship is equally important. Retention comes from engagement which comes from being heard & supported. Retention rates help feed the initial intake, it's a feedback loop. #AVintheAM
@chris_neto What exactly is meant by company culture? I think people need to be heard, to feel their contributions are meaningful & there's reward for their effort. Seems like common sense #AVintheAM
@ChrisFitzSpeaks @chris_neto Agreed. I've found strong retention rates helped "sell" the company vision to prospective employees. Training & skills development at all levels keeps people engaged #AVintheAM
@chris_neto Skills shortage. For entry level installers we run an extensive in shop skills development program. It's been successful. We've also developed programs to advance current staff into new roles. Look within and automate where sensible #AVintheAM
Saturday night feeling....#scotch
@TheAl3xFortin It's a tight rope. Good product delivery leads to repeat business and more sales. Selling more to current customers is easier than having to find new because of poor product delivery.
@chris_neto I feel this tweet... #GirlDad x 3 for me. On the plus side "Dad of the Year" is the most prestigious of awards
@AV_JamesKing Love the advice! Take the opportunity, make it work. That's growth #avtweeps
40 years old...wow... so many #legends twitter.com/landofthe80s/s…
@burch_cam @AVPhenom @chris_neto @DanFerrisiEdit @tdalbright @MeganADutta @neotilive @thesmoothfactor I'll be there for the first time
@TheAl3xFortin @DanFerrisiEdit @commintegrator Precisely. Build strong partnerships with companies who specialize.
@chris_neto @NABShow Looking forward to seeing you @NABShow
Couldn't agree more. Always learning is part of my personal 2023 plan. CTS-I was step one #avtweeps twitter.com/DwayneSmithAV/…

Who could’ve ever thought that zero interest rates, easy money, and trillions of dollars in economic stimulus would create problems for the global banking system. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
