  1. Hi Jessie:
    Thanks for sending me the invite for the webinar on Nov.11 to which I have responded.
    I have recently conducted research vis-a-vis a literature review on optimization of transportation capacity utilization specific to the problem of empty travel of trucks, under the auspices of Wilfrid Laurier University (Dr. Michael Haughton’s team). My findings thus far have lead me to the growing concern of congestion and the huge imbalance in commodity flow in/out of urban areas–a condition that is expected to continue to balloon with the anticipated growth in the urban populations.
    Many logistics and transportation providers are looking for solutions that require the collaboration and cooperation of municipalities, private corporations and industry as it relates to consolidation centres, co-loading of shipments, and freight matching in order to minimize GHG emissions, fuel consumption and associated costs–all of which are necessary for sustainable cities.
    My question to you is whether or not you (Meeting of the Minds and partners) have any experts looking at this area of concern since efficient transportation is vital to every aspect of life? Is it part of the new ISO evaluation?

    Thank you.

    P.S. I apologize for any errors made as I thought the email was from Gordon.

Digitally Connected Campuses Offer Enhanced Experiences

Digitally Connected Campuses Offer Enhanced Experiences

Following such a tumultuous school year where change was the only constant, perhaps there is no greater opportunity for colleges and universities to reimagine their campuses than there is today. To stay relevant in today’s increasingly competitive educational marketplace, schools must embrace the smart technologies that will enhance the collegiate experience and ensure seamless operations regardless of the next crises. By being proactive and planning now, schools can install the robust communications backbone and agile infrastructure necessary to support emerging technologies and create the connected campus of the future.

How Cities Are Preparing for the Future of Work

How Cities Are Preparing for the Future of Work

Given the rapidly changing “future of work” space and the impact on our cities over the last 15 months, I decided to catch up with Robert Hoyle Brown to get the latest trends and insights on where we are now and where we are headed next.

Their new report “21 Places of the Future” touches on the key drivers for the creation of jobs in relation to place. We discussed how architectural heritage is tied to jobs and place. We also discussed how people matter and the future role of philosophers and ethicists in our data-driven world. Given the recent cyber attacks on US companies, we discussed the role of cybersecurity as a driver for the creation of jobs, including the jobs of cyber attack agent and cyber calamity forecaster. And we discussed the future of virtual workplaces. Here to stay, go, or evolve? Take a look.
