Winning Big With the Barenaked Ladies & Kona

November 07, 2012

Steven Titus was one of many people at Insight who attended a special session called “Getting a Team Going With Kona.” After the session, Steven chatted with speaker Jeff Eckerle about how he’s using Kona at his company. Little did we know, we’d be hearing more of Steven’s story later on because he was the lucky winner of the Kona Contest! After entering his name into the contest as an active Kona user, along with receiving additional entries for inviting others to join him in Kona spaces, Steven’s name was pulled from a mix of hundreds of entries. As the winner, he received two backstage passes to the Barenaked Ladies concert during the conference, an electric guitar signed by the band and a special meet and greet with the band members themselves. The win couldn’t have been more perfect: Steven not only shares Canadian roots with the band and lives close to some of the band members, but he also works for an Acoustics Engineering Company. Now that’s a match made in heaven! Thanks for sharing your story with us, Steven and rock on!

Steven Aercoustics Engineering

I work for Aercoustics Engineering Limited, which was formed in 1971 with the objective of providing high quality consulting services in the science and engineering of acoustics and noise control. Over the last 40 years, the firm has successfully transitioned and is currently comprised of five principals and a staff of more than 25. Between the years of 1995 and 2011, the company received five awards of honor and excellence.

As a firm who truly understands all aspects of acoustics, noise and vibration, Aercoustics has a unique approach to design. Given our depth of knowledge in each area, we provide our clients with a holistic and integrated design. This ability also allows us to push the boundaries of design and as a result, we have had the privilege of designing and working on high profile and challenging projects across the country.

Since learning about Kona, we have used it for coordination, collaboration and document tracking. We have created several spaces for the company that are focused on specific initiatives that we hope to achieve over the next few years. These include planning future company improvements, tracking for leads and contracts at trade shows, and internal initiatives such as planning IT upgrades. Having the conversations and documents all in one organized place has proven useful so far. We had considered using other commercially available software, but would have had to purchase licenses for everyone and find a central place to store the database. Kona has eliminated the need for both of these major investments.

Winning the Kona Contest and meeting the Barenaked Ladies was very cool! Being from Toronto, I listened to their tunes before they really took off, so I knew exactly who they were. The performance was great and the band was really representative of some good local Canadian boys!Steven with the Barenaked Ladies

Thanks for the great opportunity, Kona!
