Performance Green Building - Sustainability Consultant - LEED Consultant - Corporate Responsibility Professional, Emerald Built Environments

The content was very good. A bit out of date, but fine. What's a little disturbing is that after all this time of creating presentations so seems to pay any attention to audio. And I'm not referring to this presentation.
Every single presentation I've been part of, which is a lot, the audio is always terrible. For this one the first presenter was quiet. After he spoke there as transition music that was so loud that it nearly blew out my speakers, then the second presenter was much louder than the first, but not quite as eardrum popping as the transition music. But she was way too close to the mic and not mixed whatsoever, so her voice was distorted and I had to contend with pops from her 'p's and 't's. I really is shocking how this happens on every presentation. Webinar, seminar, live, or recorded. When will you educate the professionals regarding audio? And the live webinar echo thing when a presenter has their speakers and mic on…don't get me started. Remember when the audio is this poor, it reflects badly on the presenters, usgbc, GBCI. Sorry to bust your chops so badly, but I feel strongly that this really hurts the organization and the movement more than you realize. Gary 954-557-3516

Hi Gary, Thank you for your feedback. I forwarded your comments to the Education team to review.

Architect - Portfolio Manager & Integrator , Aqua Terra

It is a very interesting role the LEED Proven Provider. The guidance of the reviewers will improve the project results and the review process. There will be more time to spend on the high performance of buildings as well to create knowledge.

Interesting presentation


Very well structured presentation. However, it would be ideal if you could list out the exact process for a new organisation to become a LEED Proven Provider somewhere.


The webinar was useful for extra information that is not available yet.
