As the Head of Communications for Green Building Holdings (GBH), Brian serves as the Executive Spokesperson for four GBH business units: Blue Ocean, SIG, GBES, and Aetos. Brian's commitment to advancing GBH's mission aligns with his dedication to creating a healthier and greener world, providing cutting-edge education and tools for success in the building industry. Notably, Brian oversaw staff extensions for Bridge CRE, expanding their Energy, Sustainability, and Engineering services. His leadership played a pivotal role in achieving LEED Gold certification for the Walter E Washington Convention Center, including waste stream consulting. He loves driving customer experience innovation, equity and sustainability projects, as well as communications and strategy improvements. But most of all, bringing wildly creative solutions to solve difficult problems. Brian's multifaceted expertise extends beyond vision to practical implementation, solving complex problems and energizing stakeholders toward shared goals. Show Highlights Brian shares tips on how to communicate sustainability effectively. Brian talks about his work with Sustainable Investment Group, GBES, Aetos Imaging, and Blue Ocean (which has launched Skema.AI). Explore the importance of waste management and recycling in commercial buildings. Exciting industry advancements in generative AI and its potential impact on both design and sustainability. Understanding the importance of resourcefulness and creativity in green building Find unexpected applications for expertise in green buildings and sustainability to drive progress towards a more circular economy. The evolving landscape of green building, influences, and the need to share best practices. The power of gratitude and finding creative ways to thank clients. “I'm really enjoying…seeing a complete Step function changes in [how tech enables]…operating buildings. I always joke that there's not a building engineer or facility operator out there who went into their line of work because they just love spreadsheets. At the end of the day, it's because they love this breathing machine that they get to live inside of and work in.” -Brian Bollinger “One of the biggest plays in the world's sustainability over the next ten years is going to be what happens to waste. We don't get to circularity without solving waste. It's just at the end of the day, as we used to say in community development, ‘God has required and the poor deserve better than amateurs with their hearts in the right place.’ And I think it's the same with waste. The planet we all share deserves better than a complete absence of circularity, when it's completely possible, and it's becoming more possible every day.” -Brian Bollinger “The biggest [recycling] tip I would [give] to commercial buildings in general: really clear signage. At the end of the day, when we find something that's way off [in waste audits], you can usually trace it back to a floor that isn't clearly communicating what belongs where. And how to dispose of it.” -Brian Bollinger “Like with the internet in 1992…[with Artificial Intelligence] the reality is that, when it comes to sustainability…I think every single week we’re discovering a new reality of what it's going to do, what this technological shift is going to enable. What's exciting about it is that we don't even know what we don’t know, and with every passing week some of it's terrifying, yes, but most of it's absolutely electrifying. And just seeing the potential that is going to continue to bring and [telling clients], “Hey, we're going to be here.’ We're going to be digging through what's good, what's bad, and we're going to keep leveraging it to drive forward the success of everybody who we get...

Regenerative Business Coach Monique Allen

11/22/2023
TITLE: Regenerative Business Coach Monique Allen Monique Allen, is CEO and Creative Director of The Garden Continuum, a landscaping design company that brings the principles of regenerative agriculture to ornamental gardening. The central work of The Garden Continuum is to create outdoor living spaces, both public and private, that draw people out into those spaces and begin to build that reconnection with nature. Monique's approach infuses life back into systems and landscapes that have been abused by degenerative practices. Through regenerative gardening, Monique breathes new life into the soil, and through her personalized landscape business coaching she helps clients build a high-integrity business reflecting care for the entire earth community. Check out her book, Stop Landscaping, Start Lifescaping. Show Highlights The garden continuum and understanding regenerative business and the landscape movement. Jumpstart ecosystems and create an energetic loop on projects. Understanding the conundrum of care to create longevity and not just sustainable. Monique shares how to partner with mother nature on projects. Match your work with clients and people who are already invested emotionally, mentally, financially in what you do. The built environment needs to embrace creating “healthy sites” and not just regenerative spaces. Approach landscaping differently with a “codify” tool to help you stop landscaping and start life. Know the difference in a landscape as something pretty to look at, compared with “Life-Scapeing,” a space you interact with nature in. “Have that triple bottom line mindset where it's: planet, people, and profits. One cannot happen without the other. It's not a question of its linearity. You roll these three aims of planet, people, and profits together. You are always looking through that triple lens to say, ‘Is this project creating a betterment or is it at least somewhat neutral,’ but it just can't be degrading or detrimental.” -Monique Allen Show Resource and Information Connect with Charlie Cichetti and GBES GBES is excited our membership community is growing.
