Kate Vitasek is an author, educator and architect of the Vested business model for highly collaborative relationships. She is a faculty member at the University of Tennessee where her research and work has led to the publication of five books and has been featured on numerous media outlets such as CNN, Bloomberg, NPR and Fox Business News. Mike Petrusky asks Kate about innovation in the facility management world related to outsourcing, partnerships, and value creation. They share stories about Seth Godin, Albert Einstein quotes, and the importance of adapting to changes in the ever-evolving workplace. Kate tells Mike about a Depeche Mode song she uses when teaching one of her classes at UT, which in turn, leads to another opportunity for song to break out on the FM Innovator Podcast!
