This week we will look at:

  • One Podcast: The Human Side of Construction
  • One Article: 2022 Most Read ConTech Stories

  • One Meme: Hardhat Holder

One Podcast

This week is our first CM Mentors Podcast with a real guest.

Kyle and I had an engaging chat with Angelo Suntres who recently published The Human Side of Construction book, which hit #1 on Amazon in just 2 days in a couple of categories.

As I reflected back on the conversation, it made me think about all the projects I’ve been a part of over the years and how those buildings have served the people who have occupied them.
