Buckminster Fuller). Ruthbea Yesner Clark, IDC: “Last guys don’t finish nice“ (Saul Alinsky). Jennifer Belissent, PhD, Forrester: “Data! Data! Data! I can’t make bricks without clay!” (Sherlock Holmes). Meghan E. Cook, Center for Technology in Government: “The power of storytelling is exactly this: to bridge the gaps where everything else has crumbled” (Paulo Coelho).
