    What we covered: 
    🍏 Almost 20 years in the mirror: what Ravid's career taught him about the water & wastewater treatment industry 
    🍏 The technical and business sides of an organization talk different languages and can be "lost in translation". Bridging the gap is the key to success! 
    🍏 Innovation in the water industry: it might be slow, it won't be easy, but it is definitely happening (with the example of desalination) 
    🍏 Three trends to watch out in treatment technologies: digitization, AOPs and resource recovery from wastewater 
    🍏 The framework to success - or the "𝘙𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘥 𝘓𝘦𝘷𝘺 𝘪𝘯𝘯𝘰𝘷𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘶𝘭𝘢"  
    🍏 Pitfalls to avoid along the way - which lead to a probable sequel episode as the story could not end there!
