o Examining your internal team and ensuring immediate decisions can be made to avoid analysis paralysis 
• Prioritization: weighing opinions and needs of the company before jumping on a new, hot tech…which tech is right for your company?

o Building immersive environments that have cloud, AI, and ML capabilities
• Reality Versus Virtual Reality: opinions on how VR can work in verticals. How does it track back to converting sales?
