I got a chance to hang out with the movers and shakers of the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge last night. Atlanta’s mayor, Kasim Reed, gave us an update on the progress Atlanta Building owners are making towards reducing their energy spend by 20% by the year 2020.
Yours truly got to speak to the group using a very scary speaking format called Pecha Kucha, a powerpoint presentation format designed to keep long winded people like me from talking too long. The format is 20 slides in twenty seconds. YIKES!!! It was one of the most challenging things I have ever done. The slide presentation is set to update every twenty seconds with or without you. How did I do?? Well, that is reserved for another post.
I got to meet a lot of cool people, including Aaron Bastian. Aaron is the communications manager for the mayor’s office of Sustainability. Hear what Aaron has to say about the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge and stay tuned to ControlTrends for all the latest Control and Smart Building News you can use.
