ApexPro, the South African distributor of ETC Lighting, hosted a talk with Anne Valentino at the Market Square Auditorium on 13 June. The event was attended by an impressive number of young lighting designers, who were treated to a two-hour long presentation on the philosophies behind the development of modern lighting control consoles.
Valentino spoke with Pro-Systems Africa News following the presentation and shared with us her extraordinary professional journey in entertainment technology, spanning some 30 years. During her career, Valentino has taken the lead in developing some of the most renowned lighting controllers to enter the market and has been a true trail-blazer in the evolution of digitised lighting control.
Despite advances in gender equality over the past two decades, one cannot deny that the manufacturing and technology fields remain largely dominated by men. Valentino has set herself apart not simply as an outstanding woman but, more importantly, as an outstanding innovator and thought– a leader among her peers on the global stage.
