Todd Takes

1. Context is so important to be able to ground the project in a practical reality. Marc discussed in great detail why it is crucial to developing buildings and infrastructure that leaves you with a positive experience. 

2. Co-opetition is here to stay. I believe that interoperability has moved far beyond being a buzzword or lofty aspiration to becoming reality. When we all are willing to work together it actually helps improve your bottom line and the industry as a whole. 

3. Marc said innovation means not being afraid to “be risky”. It is ok to think differently and challenge the status quo. I believe it is important to strike a balance between having a healthy respect of the past while also being willing to try something new. That is how we all grow.
