Wild & Marr gets smarter during lockdown

South Africa:

Like many companies, the lockdown in South Africa forced Wild & Marr’s day-to-day business to change rapidly, yet the company was keen to turn the situation into a productive opportunity. Since the lockdown started, the distributor’s employees have collectively achieved over 150 certifications and attended over 100 webinars.

“What can you achieve with the time you will have available?” was the question asked during the company’s first video conference.  The response, says managing director Gary Furman, was “immediate and powerful”.

Wild & Marr’s retail sales team quickly took a deeper dive into the technical side of training, taking it all the way up to Dante Certification Level 3. The commercial audio and voice evacuation team became certified in networked AV, conference room design and participated in expert-level training on JBL’s Performance Manager and Line Array Calculator applications. 

A member of the regional office administration found a love for the sales and technical side of the business, racking up enough courses on Shure’s Audio Institute that she attained an integrated systems level 2 and a Wireless Workbench 6 certification. Members of the technical team, specialists in Shure conferencing, are now certified Harman Control Professionals by accreditation of Harman Professional University. 

“You can be driven into lockdown or you can drive through lockdown,” commented Furman. “To the individuals in Wild & Marr who have absolutely hit the ball out of the park with the amount of certifications you have been awarded, knowledge you have gained and goals you have achieved, I say well done. Awesome job. You are not the same person you were a few weeks ago. In the face of adversity, you have become better and more accomplished as individuals and as a team.”
