  • MICHAEL….AW – move to next slide when he introduces me
  • And to wrap up today– I’d like to point to the Harvard Business Review…and a recent HBR article titled Why Sustainability is the Key Driver of Innovation.The piece was written by the great business strategist and author, C.K. Pra-ha(accent)-lad — who sadly died last week. He argued thatthe current economic system has placed enormous pressures on our planet while catering to the needs of only about a quarter of the ppl in the world. That traditional approaches to business will collapse, and companies will have to develop innovative solutions” He said – “This will happen only when executives recognize a simple truth – Sustainability = Innovation”.I’d like to end there. We look forward to having you at our next Leader Lens on May 26 with David McConville.Thanks for joining us – and I’ll turn this back to Michael Tirrell
