DALLAS—This summer, the on-site team of PSAV Project Manager Cory O’Brien and  Event Technology Specialist Ed Shaimas at the Hilton Anatole helped kick off the hotel’s employee engagement program, Blue Energy, by providing a major upgrade to the Dallas Life Foundation’s meeting room/chapel’s audio system.

The meeting room/chapel originally lacked a simple CD player and held outdated gear, including speakers that were far from optimal. O’Brien, Shaimas and the rest of the PSAV team came together to strip the rack of all components down to the bare wires, cleaned every aspect of the sound system, re-installed components, added a five-disc player and EQ, manufactured all cables for the new install, cable-tied all wiring to the back of the rack, labeled all AMP and EQ channels, set up a tape player for recording purchases, provided an on-site tutorial and donated necessary gear to ensure the sound system would provide a memorable experience for the children of the foundation.

“This project was a great success and the Dallas Life Foundation’s staff was very appreciative of our help and donation of the gear,” said O’Brien.

When asked what the most rewarding thing about this project was, PSAV VP of Strategic Accounts Todd Marinko responded, “It’s amazing how something so easy for PSAV can be so beneficial to many. Being able to partner with the Hilton Anatole to provide something back to the community was the most rewarding. Special thanks to Cory, Ed, Bud Monefeldt and Jacob Ingle for making it happen.”

The Hilton Hotels’ Blue Energy program encourages employees to live by its values: hospitality, integrity, leadership, teamwork, ownership and now. Hilton defines blue energy as its expression of the unique spirit its employees show to its guests, communities and each other.
