Lessons from Day of Innovation
Jeffrey "Skunk" Baxter:

"Problem solvers are everywhere. Take advantage of diversity."

"Without trust, innovation slows down. Trust your gut. Trust your partners."

"Reassemble the building blocks for new solutions."

"Be better than yesterday. Embrace that every moment in the future is an opportunity to be wiser and more versed than the moment that just passed."
Matt Cheuvront

"The task is not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what nobody yet has thought about that which everybody sees"
