I just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I am enjoying your podcasts--really informative and really inspiring!

What I love about what you've done is to return people back to a way of thinking that is in sympathy with the world instead of standing on top of the world.

—David Adjaye

It takes a tremendous amount of courage and conviction to act on your beliefs, and to be the change that you want to see in the world.  As a mom and an engineer I am the most unlikely of entrepreneurs and an even unlikelier standards setter.  However, my belief in what was possible was shaped in such a positive way by knowing that others like you, came before me and succeeded by bringing your unique strengths and talents to bear on the worlds critical problems. The ability to create lasting and significant change in the world doesn’t come from one person having a superpower.     It comes from the ability to make people care, to create a movement, to conceptualize possible solutions, and to convince others to apply their super powers to create positive change in the world.    That’s exactly what you did with USGBC.    That’s what we are doing with SASB.   I never would have attempted it had I not watched your trials and tribulations, and believed that is was possible.

CEO and Founder of SASB

David, we all owe you a debt of gratitude for everything that you’ve done for the industry, for getting the USGBC founded, for all that you’ve done for this country and for your continued diligence and leadership and sustainability.  Thanks, for all you do David.

Watching the USGBC grow and have its impact was truly inspirational for me. I’m just replicating your great ideas.  It will be wonderful if we can transform many industries.

Thank you, David, for everything you’ve done for us as well, for this little big-brained young species.
