“ Models should be dynamic and not static, they should be integrated and not sort of siloed pieces not speaking to each other. ”


" There's a lot of merit just to continuously reinvesting in both your skill set and your credentials, and that it's really important to never stop doing that. The FMI has created a really intriguing platform as a way to do that. ”
