Jerry has crafted unique presentations for business, professional and trade audiences designed to keep them informed about the important green building and green development trends and help them uncover opportunities they might have overlooked. Each of these talks is customized for a particular audience. Here are general outlines of the presentations.

Why Are They Greener Than We Are? European Green Building Trends
Based on two years of on the ground research in Western Europe, Jerry profiles the leading European green building trends, with case studies, technology analyses and institutional innovations that U.S. architects, engineers and building owners can put to use in North America. Jerry’s 2009 book, Green Building Trends: Europe (Island Press) presents these trends in detail. In his recent presentations of this topic, the audience reaction has been
overwhelmingly favorable.

Greening Existing Buildings
From the Empire State Building to the Sears (Willis) Tower in Chicago, greening existing buildings is the hottest development in the green building field. In the first half of 2009, nearly 500 million sq.ft. of existing buildings registered for green upgrades. Jerry’s 2009 book, Greening Existing Buildings (McGraw-Hill) presents this information in detail. In his presentation, Jerry talks about the motivations and actions of building owners and others creating this major new trends. The Race to Zero Carbon Building Jerry’s work in making the business case for green building leads to the ultimate: buildings and developments that are neutral or positive with respect to global warming. Jerry makes the case that every new building/development should be zero carbon. Audiences learn how to make this case for in their next project and the strategies for getting to zero carbon without breaking the budget. Jerry shows how to use tax incentives and new technologies in this “race to zero”.

Getting Green Done
Jerry’s 2008 book, Green Building through Integrated Design, is the first to profile most of the LEED Platinum projects in the U.S. Through interviews, case studies and new methods, Jerry shows audiences how the experts are “Getting Green Done” on conventional budgets. Audiences learn new processes and procedures to enhance their next green building projects and get motivated to change processes to achieve improved outcomes.

The Business Case for Green Development
Designed for the skeptical business audience, Jerry shows how commercial, retail, hospitality and mixed-use developers are using the business case for green development to make decisions to provide certified green projects for 100% of their work. This talk uses case studies, the latest research and good common sense to make the case. Jerry’s new book, Sustainable Retail Development (Springer, 2009) makes the compelling argument for green development to the retail industry. Jerry has already presented this talk to retail industry audiences in the U.S., U.K. and Germany.
