How To Hire The Right Clean Corporate Humorist For Your Event...

Hiring a corporate humorist for your event can be a tricky thing. On one hand, you know you want humor in order to get the message, whatever it may be, across to your employees, but on the other, you want to be sure that the message doesn’t get lost in the laughter. It’s a fine balance that must be met, and while many corporate humorists have been able to achieve it, it can be hard to find out which ones are the best. Here are a few tips on how to hire the right clean corporate humorist for your event. Be Sure Humor Fits Your Event’s Tone Before you even begin, be sure that the overall theme of the event is one where humor would be appropriate. Some events, such as those discussing cancer treatment, may not be the right venue for corporate humor, so be cautions when considering what type of speaker to hire. If the tone of the event would benefit from a humorous speaker, be sure that the brand and style of humor the speaker has is one that a large number of audience members would enjoy. While it’s true that you simply can’t please everyone, it is ideal if you go with someone who has a broad appeal. Ask For A Summary Of Jokes Of course you don’t want to hear their entire presentation in advance, but asking for a brief summary of the style of jokes that will be told, or an overview of their type of humor is acceptable. This will help you determine if it is indeed suitable for your event, and if your audience is likely to laugh, or groan. Hire Someone Familiar With Your Industry One way to ensure that the style of humor is...

Using An ESD Simulator...

There are many different components and devices that are tested using an ESD simulator. These are sometimes referred to as ESD guns and they are small, compact, handheld devices that are often used in conjunction with other EMC testing systems across a range of different industries and applications. The purpose of these tests is to determine the immunity, or the lack of susceptibility to ESD or electrostatic discharge. The pulses of electrostatic discharge are high-voltage, short duration, fast pulses that occur naturally when two or more objects with different electrical charges are in contact or even when simply close together. By completing testing in the lab with the ESD simulator the manufacturer has the ability to determine the parameters of use of the equipment. These tests are often a requirement within a specific industry, particularly the automotive and aerospace industries. It is also required for components or parts that are sold to the European Economic Areas or EEA. These components all have to have the designated CE marking that is required for the appropriate standards in the EEA. Testing Models Various ESD simulator designs will provide testing on three different possible sources of ESD. These include the machine, charged devices and the human body. The machine model creates ESD as would be found in a machine working in close proximity to the device being tested. There are various settings possible within this model that apply to specific applications and environments where the test device will be used. The charged device mode is used when the component, part or device is used in and around production processes and large equipment. This is more of a generalist type of testing that is used on most electronic devices found in industry and manufacturing. The human body model...

Mistakes To Avoid With Medical Device Contract Manufacturing...

There are many different companies and services involved in medical device manufacturing processes today. Many of the OEM or original equipment manufacturers are using medical device contract manufacturing as a cost effective way to produce components and to even be involved in the initial design and development stage. Finding the right company to work as a medical device contract manufacturing service is important. These companies have to perform to all required standards and to also have a top understanding of the implications for use of the device. This is becoming more relevant as medical devices become increasingly “smart” devices, actually performing in the patient based on complex factors for higher effectiveness and increased safety. Lacking Early Involvement The contract manufacturing companies are often not brought in by the OEMs early enough in the process. This can result in costly delays and changes to the design that could have been easily prevented. This may be a case of the OEM not being aware of the latest in technology and research or simply lacking the experienced professionals in microelectronic design and components on the in-house team. Regardless of the reasons, working with the contract manufacturing company early in the design and development process is increasingly important. Not Shopping Options for Companies When the OEM has a solid partnership with a contract company and is satisfied with the past experiences from design through production, shopping around for qualified contracts manufacturers may not be important on each project. However, if there were challenges in working with the contract manufacturer in the past, including late delivery or other issues, shopping around for a new contract manufacturer is always a good option. Ideally, look for medical device contract manufacturing that can provide a wider scope of tasks based on the...
