Kurt Karnatz to moderate CoreNet Global Chicago Chapter panel focused on ways to improve the post-pandemic workplace.
There is no doubt that certain technologies will benefit in the post-pandemic office. Touchless technology is certainly one that will be implemented more frequently.
Kurt Karnatz will moderate the CoreNet Global Chicago Chapter virtual panel “Improving the Post-Pandemic Office with Technology” on Thursday, Oct. 29 at noon Central Time. From helping employees make logistics decisions, to sanitation, to nourishing culture, community and collaboration, Karnatz and the panelists will explore existing and new-horizon technologies in a post COVID-19 workplace. The panelists include Thru Shivakumar of Cohesion, an ESD spinoff which raised $6.5 million for its SaaS intelligent building platform this year, and Myrna Coronado-Brookover, senior vice president for Transwestern’s Midwest Asset Services Group, with whom ESD worked on the 77 W. Wacker building to figure out an innovative way to remove aging cooling towers. Other panelists are Drew DePriest, lead for Digital Solutions and Strategy at CBRE | Host, Alan Ni, global director of Smart Spaces & IoT for Aruba and Jay Leedy, director of business development at Diversified.
ESD has been involved in implementing cutting-edge technologies since the pandemic began. We recently teamed up with Riverside Investment & Development and Cohesion to deploy a state-of-the-art indoor air quality program at 150 N. Riverside in Chicago.
