Dear friends,
Are you ready to change the world in 2019? How about changing yourself first?

Happy holidays!

How The Hospitality Sector Can Benefit From Frugal Innovation

In this video interview with Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne (EHL) I explain how the hospitality sector can use frugal innovation to embrace digital disruption and reduce their carbon footprint by 66% by 2030.
