Quiet Mark

In Episode 2 of The Quiet Mark Podcast, Simon Gosling, CSO, enjoys conversations during Lockdown, via Video-Call from NEW YORK, with Carolyn Forte - Director/Home Appliances and Cleaning Products Lab at GOOD HOUSEKEEPING INSTITUTE, Good Housekeeping Magazine, and Ethan Bourdeau - Concept Lead/ Senior Associate at the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI).

Like the Quiet Mark Award, The Good Housekeeping Seal and The WELL Certification are standards from trusted third party expert organisations. They each demystify the science, simplifying it for the public or defining it for industry, so that when one sees their mark, seal or certification they know instantly that the item that has received it, be it an appliance or a building, has been verified, thoroughly approved and commended by the longstanding experts.

Carolyn and Ethan discuss how sound and acoustics play a pivotal role in the assessment process of their standards especially now in the world changing around us, explaining how good sound design can not only enhance performance, but is also powerful to fortify well-being, productivity and one's overall mental and physical health.
