Growth is key to every establishment, like a parent expects his or her kids to advance in stature and maturity so are the expectations for any forward thinking enterprise. Humour me on this, a child with kwashiorkor grows too right? Right, but this kind of growth is seen as a condition because it's not holistic in nature, some parts are enlarged while others shrunken. That may not be the most graphically pleasing example to cite, but one thing is for sure, healthy growth is all encompassing.

As practitioners in this industry, it is our duty to ensure this growth is "all encompassing" so everyone is carried along. We love our stars, but is there a place for the star makers? Is there a community where they can share ideas? Can they help each other ensure longevity in the profession they so love and that binds them together? Is there a niche for them to crack 'tech-ie' jokes only they can understand?

Sound is powerful! It helps us interpret our surroundings, make split-second decisions and also express our deepest emotions in ways no other medium can. No wonder Hollywood spends so much on it, they know the sound is just as important as the picture the same way we know the pounded yam is just as important as the soup it goes with.
