A Sound Effect on People
About This Show
A Sound Effect on People is a show that explores how we're all affected by sound, or to use a technical term, by acoustics. We'll investigate how poor acoustics can be disruptive, even harmful, while good acoustics can help us learn, work productively, even heal. We'll discover that our responses to sound are both psychological and physiological. And we'll learn about how people with different personalities react in different ways to the same sounds.
A Sound Effect on People is produced by Saint-Gobain Ecophon, a manufacturer that specialises in developing and producing materials that improve room acoustics.

Episode 9 - Creativity and Technology
In our ninth podcast, part of our mini-series from Workplace Trends, we are joined by Nigel Oseland (@oseland) and Mike Adams (@supervideomike) as they discuss creativity and the impact of technology on the workplace. People should been seen as a company’s “best assets” due to the creativity they bring to the workplace. Yet Nigel believes people are often still expected to be seen at their desks and to look busy, despite this not necessarily meaning that people are productive and creative. Nigel explores how fostering creativity can also depend on the way the employees are treated, and how to develop that philosophy within an organisation. Workplace technology is continuously being improved and developed to meet ever increasing demand. Mike Adams, technology consultant for VEGA Europe, believes that many “people are afraid of technology; they see it as a horror story”. Mike discusses the current technology trends; wireless technology, video communication and conferencing and working remotely, and the effect this technology will have on many workplaces.
