In this episode of the ‘Where People Meet’ podcast, we are joined by Giovanni Galvez, Vice President of Business Development and Strategy at SyncWords, one of the world's top-rated captioning and translation services for in-person, hybrid and virtual events. At SyncWords, Giovanni oversees all marketing and communications programs, including brand and partnership strategies, as well as consulting with key enterprise customers on scalable, cloud-based SaaS captioning and subtitling workflows. Giovanni has been a software product manager for the past 10 years, and recently received an Emmy Award for Technical Excellence in Internet Captioning Workflows.
In this episode of the podcast, we were very lucky to have Giovanni sit down to answer a few questions about his background in the meetings and events industry, how he developed his interest in captioning and translation services, why it’s important for event planners to prioritize accessible and inclusive events, as well as the factors that are involved in planning accessible events. Giovanni also goes into depth about SyncWords and its technologies, and discusses next steps for SyncWords helping event planners run more accessible and inclusive events. As always, we close out the episode by asking Giovanni to provide our listeners with tips and tricks that they can apply to their own event strategies to make them more accessible and inclusive to everyone.
