Episode 302: ControlTalk NOW — Smart Buildings Videocast and PodCast for week ending Feb 10, 2019 takes the future head on — with interviews with two amazing and accomplished experts with widely differing perspectives.  Our first guest is author and Future Technologist, Sudha Jamthe, from Silicon Valley, who explains business model creation along the yellow-bricked-digital-transformational-highway, while our second guest, Total Controls’  Mike Schwan, Central California Regional Manager, delivers an insightful state-of-the-industry assessment that’s grounded securely to the most relevant building automation present, while taking an entertaining summary reflection of the past, and then Mike takes a solid stab at what’s next.  Amazing stuff!  Also, if you haven’t already watched the official 2018 ControlTrends Awards video, you should! Please take this opportunity to do so. Congratulations, once again to all the winners.

Episode 004 Next Generation Innovation: Teamwork improves results

Episode 4 brings Teamwork and Performance to-the-table, for the Smart Buildings and HVAC community. We use a couple good metaphors in Sports and Music for each. 

First-up is (recently Young Gun inducted) Brent Burrows and Chad Erwin from ENTEK. I performed Project Tracker Training with them and was fortunate to witness their exceptional Teamwork; we explore how they’ve become such a good Team and offer suggestions for you!

Next is my Brother, Adam Gorka and Myself! We had just finished our very-first-recording of NGI (including our rocking intro’s and a Thank You episode that’ll come-out later) and I wanted to hammer into something a little different. Among other things, we connect Musical performances with performance on a Job Site. We bounce-around-a-bit, but I think you’ll enjoy this interview; many more to come : )
