Brains on the Screen
Giant spinning heads were a recurring theme. The heads featured various members of the Metaswitch leadership team doing alternating voice-overs in a humorous vein. The technology was serious but the presentation wasn't, at least not always.

Phil - from the backside - also stars in the final shot from the "Thriller" video, which was hilarious. 

BTW, there is more serious coverage to come on Metaswitch.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
