While in the midst of a crisis, like the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe there is an excellent opportunity to challenge old norms and to create an environment for new ideas, innovations, and technologies to take flight.
One area ripe for new thinking and innovation is the age-old topic of indoor air quality.
During today’s episode, we are joined by a national thought leader and business executive who has been leading the charge on the importance of addressing indoor air quality for more than a decade.
Harry Pliskin is the President of Atreo, an industry-leading organization that designs and installs pneumatic transport solutions in highly complex environments of all sizes and geographical locations.
While together, Harry shares with us how his clients are adjusting to the realities and needs the pandemic has created and how he is leading the charge in reimagining designs and solutions for indoor air quality well after the pandemic is behind us.
Join us for this meaningful and encouraging conversation about the importance of indoor air quality during the Coronavirus outbreak and beyond.
