BIM, A/V, and Problem-Hacking

with Jon Broadbent

There aren’t many technologies, or parts therein, that Matthew hasn’t at least heard of. So when Senticon A/V & Design CEO Jon Broadbent sheds light on “meeting equity,” educating Matthew in the process, you know you’re dealing with a trailblazer.

And it was just a tiny piece of an expansive conversation pie, as Jon lit up the RCN studio with tales of BIM & A/V, getting yelled at by Redman & Method Man, the consequences of old workflows, collective solutions, Stoicism, competition, problem-hacking, industry buzzwords & hype, and much more.
