A fast-paced, no-holds-barred, sometimes counterintuitive, maybe controversial presentation challenges attendees to question their assumptions and offer a diverse set of viewpoints. If you've had conversations about a new facility, explored a piece of land, solicited an RFQ or RFP, talked to procurement, formed a building committee, or sought funding, chances are you have already made an unintentional decision that could affect you in ways never intended.
