Timothy D. Francis, DC Chiropractor Chiropractic Kinesiology Las Vegas, NV www.marquistopdoctors.com/2017/11/14/ timothy-francis What are two key behavior/personality traits that allow you to be effective in your role? I have a genuine concern for my patients and I also have a desire to be the best in my field. What is the most important issue/challenge you are dealing with in your industry? I am a chiropractic kinesiologist, so the way I practice is with a multidisciplinary approach with a spiritual side built in. What innovations or technologies do you feel will shape the future of your industry? I handpick study groups, so instead of doing talks once a year by invitation, I would have 25-35 attendees. Now, that study group has dwindled to about seven because I am trying to mentor them using a more one-on-one approach. Dr. HaroldW. Furchtgott-Roth Senior Fellow Hudson Institute Chevy Chase, DC www.marquistopexecutives. com/2019/11/14/harold-furchtgott-roth How have you navigated disruptions in your industry to remain a top professional? Politics always change, but the substance doesn’t change very much. It’s how you focus on the substance, then there aren’t that many dramatic changes. What innovations or technologies do you feel will shape the future of your industry? Not innovations so much, but I think that certain topics over the next decade will dominate my field in the areas of privacy and internet security. How do you feel your industry has changed/evolved? It has become much more competitive and the pace of technological innovation has accelerated. What excites you the most about your industry? There are lots of technologists developing new ideas and it’s exciting to see. 12 Marquis Who’s Who Insight | Fourth Edition John W. Fisher, PhD, PE, NAE Civil Engineering Educator, Professor Emeritus Lehigh University Bethlehem, PA www.marquistopeducators. com/2020/06/17/john-fisher How have you navigated disruptions in your industry to remain a top professional? My involvement in the research. My research efforts and my involvement in the field led to continuing work. As a result, I have maintained involvement even at my age — it has kept me active. I became involved in high-strength bolts and welding structures when I was an assistant bridge research engineer. This led me to pursue all of my other work and gain support. What excites you the most about your industry? Younger generations have become involved. There seems to be a slackoff in education focused on my area of expertise and sometimes I see mistakes being made today that shouldn’t have been made.
