Keys to A Smart City: Public Private Partnerships P3 - Part 2
February 21, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Building a smart city? Follow the money” (placemeter.com). In Part 1, we explored how smart city leaders are turning to public private partnerships for resources to deliver municipal services, maintain and upgrade infrastructure, and make their cities attractive for citizens, businesses and others. What makes a good public private partnership? The experts speak. Andrew Mack, AMGlobal Consulting: “When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it's you with a camera bossing your friends around” (S. Spielberg). Jennifer Sanders, Dallas Innovation Alliance: “A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for” (W. Shedd). Gert Christen, City Innovate Foundation: “6.4 billion connected ‘things’ will be in use worldwide by the end of 2016” (Gartner). Marlyn Zelkowitz, SAP: “Building sustainable cities…will need open dialogue among all branches of… government…and…all stakeholders” (Ban Ki-moon). Join us for Keys to A Smart City: Public Private Partnerships #P3 – Part 2.
