| Bryan Duggan Altered Interview Conference
I was lucky to have xyHt to book my hotel, which they booked just over the water in Coronado. Not only can you register on the Sunday but also there are little sessions and talks on at the Marriott next door to the SDCC. I was lucky to catch a few talks on BIM and GIS as well as some talks on satellite imagery, but the big tip here is that a lot of the Esri legends are there. As you arrive at the SDCC you realize the enormity of the venue and are overwhelmed by the amount of people walking past you looking to register or get a good seat.
Of course, Dr Dangermond is the master showman; he engages the crowd with their pieces of work and then gets everyone interacting and responding to the improvements which Esri are constantly adding to the software. It is almost akin to being in church, with the crowd hanging off every word that is uttered. The plenary ends and, although it is almost three hours long, it has whizzed by, and everyone heads into the Gas Lamp district, across the road, for something to eat.
As you walk down the road you are sure to spot a GIS legend here or there, as all the eateries have outside seating. After lunch the sessions start, and you need to make sure that you have a map of the complex with you as the place is HUGE; there are sessions all over, and I missed one or two as I struggled to find the rooms among the giant maze.
In fact, I was supposed to interview John but it ended up being a long chat about what he does, how his kids are, and how he puts up with Ken Field I might share this later. Tuesday comes around and it is all about the expo. There are still LOTS of sessions going on all around the SDCC, and you find yourself going to sessions and then meeting up with people in the expo for two minutes before heading off for another session or meeting.
To put things into focus, my Fitbit told be I did over 40, steps on the Tuesday! For me, Wednesday was all about interviews. Back to the interviews, and Wednesday morning brings the biggest interview of my life. I am given 15 minutes with Dr Jack Dangermond. What do you ask one of the biggest tech owners of modern times? Surely he is bored of talking about the software constantly.
Good news is that I managed to get near to an hour in the end! Although he arrives on the Monday and works flat out for the whole week you constantly see him talking with people , he is incredibly fit and energized for someone in their 70s; it really is inspiring.
Look for the full interview soon at xyHt. After meeting Jack, I am scheduled to meet Esri staffer Barbara Pickering in the exhibition hall to do the software testing. As I arrive, I notice lots of cubicles, around the size of two-man offices, around the edge of the exhibition hall not sure how I missed them walking around the first few times! On meeting Barbara, she goes through the process by which I will be recorded performing some tasks using the new tools and they will ask a few questions at the end on how I felt it went.
So I enter the room, am told we are recording, and read the task sheet in front of me and proceed to right-click on a process to enable the batch tools. And the city is saying emergency medical response time is down by a third, again a number difficult to corroborate. But so far, critics have been few. In the neighborhoods, leaders are seeing a more responsive City Hall. At the bus stops, people say a lack of buses and long waits still exist but are getting better.
The mayor was not made available for an interview for this report. But in the past he has outlined how he has tackled new tasks. That's how you ultimately get people's confidence in you," he said in a wide-ranging interview with The Detroit News in In his leadership at the DMC, the early win centered around the emergency room.
A competing hospital was doing it in 30 minutes and Duggan wanted to do it better. But Duggan demanded a fix. It triggered a top-to-bottom restructuring of the hospital, from admissions to discharge, from cleaning to food service.
It looked like a simple fix — 29 minutes or less — but it required massive change that benefited all patients and the hospital system, Cole said.
He has begun streamlining a bloated City Hall and has attacked problems that are within his control. Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr retains control over the police and other levers of city power, for now. People have noticed more buses, some are benefitting from repaired streetlights and several neighborhoods have felt the rumble of home and building demolitions. Duggan himself has said his administration should ultimately be judged on a number which his office cannot report nor control: It might be the most dangerous number Duggan has ever gambled on: After losing nearly a quarter-million people in the last decade — the biggest percentage loss ever and the largest population loss since the s — the city that once boasted 1.
Between and , it lost an estimated 10, people. What might look crazy — trying to alter a deeply entrenched demographic and migratory trend — might not be. To Kurt Metzger, a longtime area demographer, Duggan might be making an astute gamble.
Rents and housing costs are rising in the suburbs, making it more expensive to move out of the city. And rising rents in parts of Detroit indicate demand is rising as well. But hitting the bottom and moving from it are two different things. But with this one, there is danger. Rochkind is bullish on the city and says he knows people across the country and globe are watching.
Many, he said, would consider a move to the city. At the moment, Duggan is staying focused. He said he hopes to add dozens of new buses and knock down thousands of more blighted homes and repair thousands more street lights and bring thousands of people back into the city. And so, perhaps, will the city. Please consider a donation to support our work!
