Houston, We Have a Problem!
Project Apollo is perhaps the most successful collaborative project ever undertaken by mankind. It has been overlooked for decades as a model from which we can replicate achieving impossible goals and resolving complex catastrophic problems. Houston, We Have a Problem, is an introduction to The Apollo Business Model™ which defines how we won the space race in seven years and how that model can help businesses achieve their most astronomical goals. The presenter worked at Mission Control in Houston during Project Apollo and has codified his experiences at NASA, his work with more than 700 companies, and his obsession with excellence, documented in his 12 books.

Building a Community Around a Project:
Are you concerned about creating stakeholder buy-in for your projects? In this talk, Britton Griffith-Douglas will describe her company’s success mixing economic development, public service and real estate growth in an urban development by building a community around the project. Over the last few years her company has worked on multiple and mixed downtown projects, including one brand new building, the Palladio, and one building that required a renovation while maintaining its' historical attributes, the Arlington Towers. Marketing both buildings, establishing both locations as tech friendly tenant hubs and creating teams for construction and community support was daunting. They were successful by establishing a common community thread through both projects. The brand and movement of StartUp Row, the permitting process and creation of Reno's first Parklet was done with the City of Reno, and they initiated relationships with EDAWN, UNR and the Chamber as open Landlords that allowed the company to show these spaces in tours and discussions. With this trifecta of unity in the community they built a buzz, were able to show people a hands on experience of each location, and were granted a place in downtown Reno by constructing buildings they believed in. Her company has built trust and relationships and through this has had access to assistance, marketing and positive perspective on projects. They strive to build a community around each project.
