You rocked the house! You engaged and entertained everyone.

Executive Director, USGBC LA Chapter

I thought your presentation was excellent and inspiring. It far exceeded my expectations and I’ve heard only rave reviews from folks in my office who were in the audience. I think your questions at the end raised valuable points and offered great interaction, which is rare in keynote settings but fit perfectly with the PH crew and more intimate setting.

Everyone I heard from had great things to say about your presentation and style. Having you on board made it much easier to attract the speakers to this year’s excellent conference lineup.

Thank you for your kind and sharing demeanor as well as your generosity to share your vast knowledge with our membership.

Daniel Huard, USGBC-Nevada Director, Programs Committee Co-Chair

Jerry’s enthusiasm and knowledge of the green building industry inspired many of our Expo attendees to incorporate green building strategies into their local projects, leading some to pursue LEED-EBOM certification! His case studies helped attendees realize that pursuing “green” is feasible.

Michael Berning, Senior Principal, Heapy Engineering
2010 Dayton Green Expo

The feedback for your session was fantastic and I quoted you in my closing remarks.

Chris De Cure, Australia Consul-General, Event Sponsor

2010 Australia-US Sustainable Cities Dialogue, LA

“Our first learning event was a huge success! It is never easy engaging a new market. But your presentation was enough to sell the event out! Your words were insightful/provocative and you clearly illustrated the differing view our continents have toward green design.”

Program Sponsor
CoreNet Global, Fort Worth, TX

“Jerry Yudelson provided training in 2009 for about 50 of our project managers in the LEED rating system. His course was customized for our needs and was very well received by our people. We found Jerry to be well prepared, thoroughly professional and quite understanding of our unique needs as developers of high-end residential communities.”

Susie Maglich, Design Manager
AvalonBay Communities, Inc.

“Jerry gave a terrific talk here at WHYY in January 2009. His topic focused upon information for non-profits in ways they can begin to take important steps toward greening their building, and conserving energy. Jerry was humorous, insightful and thoughtful. He shared important information in an easy way and helped the audience understand that there are simple steps to take that do not involve complicated actions.”

Maggi Leyden
WHYY, Philadelphia

“Jerry Yudelson fit the scope of our Green to Business (aka G2B) day-long seminar perfectly. His focus on sustainability as it relates to business professionals gave him the credibility that we had hoped for with this project. Jerry made the details leading up to our event very easy and followed through on every aspect of his agreement with our organization. I would highly recommend Jerry for future speaking engagements.”
