Presentations

Giving credit where credit is due, my dad David J. DeMarle is an expert in creativity, chemistry, value engineering and future forecasting, and towing icebergs! (For a sample of his work see http://www.value-eng.org/knowledge_bank/attachments/DeMarle%20-%20A%20Metric%20for%20Value.pdf ).
