David delivers keynote at Virginia Tech, March 2020

David Gull, Outer Realm CEO, presented a keynote speech at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA on March 3rd, 2020, titled "Platform Shift: From 2D Screens to Spatial Computing"

As a Real Estate tech thought leader, David was invited to deliver his talk at the 25th Anniversary of the Property Management Program at VaTech.

The talk was very well received and led to a long Q&A session from the highly engaged audience.

"We had a great time with David. All technical elements fell nicely into place. Most importantly, he was really able to engage the students. After his talk, about 15 students asked questions. This level of participation is rare and it was wonderful to see that David was able to captivate the audience. I really liked that he had a demo of augmented reality for everyone to try out. Aside from the engaging technology, David included a question in his talk that really made the students think about their future career and how they want to be a force that shapes the world. He also tailored his talk to the property management topic and included examples that my students could relate to. Overall, he was the perfect speaker and fulfilled all the goals I had for the event."

-  Kelly Avery,  Associate Professor of Practice in the Virginia Tech Program of Property Management
