Management Specialties

I have experience delivering audio visual presentation support as internal and external communications for multimillion-dollar companies across diverse industries since 1980.

My experience includes managing technical staff, production and creative teams, and serving corporate communications professionals. I specialize in the technical development of presentations, marketing campaigns, successful product launches and public relations communication events. I have had some incredible opportunities, since taking the leap to operating my own consultative management business. I continue to support great working relationships with existing clients and forge exciting new client relationships.

My specialty is working within a creative group and translating their creative ideas into technical capabilities and helping to develop their needs into a specific technical design. As the project comes to life, I build a strong technical production support team and we then carry the event through to a successful completion. I'm an industry veteran, with a broad resource network of video engineering and technical project specialists, which I draw upon, to accomplish these goals on time and within my client's budget.

After working in the AV staging industry all these years I have built a very strong team. We are enjoying the opportunity to explore a whole range of new of technical support services for our client's projects. These include, 4K resolution camera and record systems, TEXT TO SCREEN, Polling, Audience response systems , interactive mobile device app integration, WEBCASTING , Augmented Reality, CUSTOM MOBILE APPS, and custom web applications that interface with Audio Visual production and other interesting uses of technology, as new trends emerge. We are successful at adapting to new technology, we are adept at embracing client goals, either using the systems they choose or that we can recommend, to fulfill their needs. We will then help the client to bring that new technology to their customers.

In the most simple terms, we can write the technical RFP for nearly any type of show or event and then follow through to be sure it get's done correctly.

How can we help you?

Testimonials

  • "The first consideration I use when evaluating a person's skill set is to ask myself 'Would you want him/her on your team?' In the case of Warren Tash, the answer is a resounding YES! I've worked with Warren since 1982, first at AVHQ, then at AVC. While at AVC, I enjoyed touring one of the shows he was managing in Las Vegas, and was very impressed with his grasp of every detail, anticipation of upcoming requirements, and willingness to do whatever was needed for success, whether or not it was something for which he was contracted. Warren doesn't understand 'why we can't', but is all about 'how we can'. Whether you want him on your team as a service provider, you won't go wrong in selecting him as someone who can help you meet your goals."

    Mike O’Brien

    Executive Director of Process and Profit Improvement | Freeman | www.freemanco.com

  • "My company has been the videoconference provider for Warren on several events. Warren's attention to detail and pre-production work on the audio visual requirements made our events happen flawlessly. Warren has been in the business for many years, as a technical director and I highly recommend his services."

    Steve Ferrera

    Owner, Millennium Communications

  • "I had the great pleasure of working with Warren for over ten years when we were at AVHQ together, and have continued the association, and friendship, in the 20 years since that time. Warren has a great skill at working with clients and consistently delivering beyond their expectations. He is talented, a great creative thinker, and good at thinking on his feet when the need arises. Perhaps the best thing I can say about Warren is that he is one of the most conscientious and honest people I have ever known."

    David Elliott

    Owner, South Pacific Image, Inc.

  • "Warren has been an associate of mine and CDP for over 20 years. During that time many opportunities have presented themselves for us to work together on projects in our respective fields. I have always been impressed by the degree of commitment, integrity and follow thru exhibited by Warren's provisions. I'm happy to see Warren's progress in his career and wish him the best of luck in his new enterprise."

He has great technical knowledge of the "machinery" of show production and is always sensitive to the creative and technical needs of the client, as well as the engineers, certainly a delicate balance! He displays great integrity in all his dealings, yet manages to deliver a project on time and on budget. I will always consider Warren one of my "A List" people, and a close friend, no matter how far ranging our business takes us."

BIO

Founder & CEO

 

After working in production and AV staging industry for 30 years, I have had some incredible opportunities since taking the leap to operating my own consultative management business. I have been able to continue to support the many great working relationships I have built up over the years with my existing clients. I have been able to offer them customized 'turn-key' equipment packages including management services. In addition, as my business has grown, I have forged some great new relationships and been able to explore a whole new type of technical support service for their projects; for example I have recently helped produce: "Twitter-walls", Rich Media Web-casts and interactive ‘video mapped’ art displays.

I have been successful in consulting and producing for a variety of production companies, event - marketing and PR firms for many years. My specialty is working with a creative group and translating their creative needs into a project with technical and design specifications. As the project comes to life, I will build a strong technical production team to support the creative team, and carry the event through to a successful completion.

I'm a corporate production industry veteran, with a broad resource network of video engineering and technical project specialists which I draw upon to manage and accomplish these goals on time and within my client's budget.

See below for a partial resume of my clients and projects with which I have had the privilege to be involved:

I have provided technical staging, video, audio, and lighting support for many high profile clients, including: Sony Studios, Sony Imageworks and Sony's Media Services Department, Feats inc. (serving many higher institutions of learning), The Crystal / Lucy Awards 'Women in Film', ESPN "The Party" at each Superbowl location for the last 10 years, the AACTA Awards (the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts ), Silicon Valley Bank, St. Mary's College annual RSWG event on campus, Neal Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air force Base, Universal, Fox and Disney Studios, E3 events and various trade show booths, Merrill Lynch, the Grammy Awards press area, USC, UCLA, The City of Los Angeles, Event Eleven, Skechers USA, Boeing / TPN, Verizon, General Mills, and many, many others. I have adapted my role in each of these projects to meet their unique requirements. When needed, I will serve as a content manager, or Technical Director "calling" the show for many live events, other times I will be a technical producer, sourcing equipment and manpower and adding whatever else on that might be needed to deliver a successful show!

• For the last 6 years I've been part of the production team supporting Discovery Communications.

My job description has been different each year, managing webcasts, teleconference segments and focus groups at their national sales meetings, always under the direction of my producer and the end clients at Discovery creative. One year I assisted in the production of a stunning 3D closing segment for the upfront tour. I coordinated the creative content delivery and managed the 3D display team for the tour. The result was described by the Discovery creative producer as the "best ever" upfront closing module to date.

• In the last several years I’ve provided technical production support for Event Eleven's various live events.

This has included a series of great Super bowl parties for ESPN. The talent for the last few shows included Ludacris, Kid Rock, and Drake.

For their Belvedere 'branding' events, I regularly provide video support and overall technical direction. Recent performers featured have been USHER, Mary J.Blidge, Kanye West, and many others.

I recently helped on an event for a public relations firm featuring X-Factor celebrity cast members and demonstrating the newest X-Factor social media campaign sites including Pepsi Pulse and SoundOFF!

We are currently working on an Augmented Reality (AR Video) project as part of a PR campaign which will take place in Grand Central Station in NYC.

For a recent charity fundraiser for Virgin Unite, I had the honor to work with BARTKRESA on some very innovative video mapping designs. This project was unique in technical design as it was webcast to sites worldwide and simultaneously to the entire Virgin Atlantic fleet in flight!

Maintaining close ties with my clients has always been a great priority for me, and have led to some great experiences; one of the best of which is when I worked with Mark Flaisher and David Wolper on David's last show, helping Party Planners West and Mark to produce the entertainment gala to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the LA84 Olympic games at the LA coliseum. That was a particularly significant show for me, since Mark and I were both also involved in the original 1984 Olympics closing ceremony.
