Held on April 14-15th 2018, The Australian Running Festival in Canberra consisted of a number of events including 5km, 10km, Half Marathon, Marathon and 50km Ultra Marathon events.
The P.A. People, an Australian provider of large-scale–event communications systems and equipment, has been providing intercom packages for the Olympic Games since the 2000 Sydney Games were played in its own backyard. At the 2018 Winter Olympics in February, The P.A. People were on the ground in PyeongChang, teaming up with OneUp Solutions to deliver a full suite of intercom gear — including Studio Technologies Model 211 announcer stations — to each of the Games’ 15 venues.
I’ve been with the company for 4 years, having joined in October 2014 as the junior showroom assistant, with some Event Communications work thrown in. I moved to Event Communications full time about 18 months ago.
I didn’t have much industry experience prior to joining, but I completed my Bachelor of Audio Production at SAE. I heard about the initial opportunity to join The P.A. People through a friend at the company.
