Most of us get up every morning and tackle our daily challenges with some degree of courage, but truth be told, we’re all afraid of something lurking under the bed (metaphorically speaking). But being together after dark can turn fright night into something fun – remember ghost stories around the campfire? So this session is about collectively yanking the covers off the boogeyman – in a spirit of good humor and play.
In our industry, we’re headed for some big changes, and change inevitably provokes concerns. Architects may be worried about having to incorporate new, unfamiliar technologies. Raters face the constant threat of angering clients who blame them for enforcing ever more rigorous standards. Builders may be afraid of investing in new home designs that buyers won’t like. Many utility executives fear coming disruptions in their business models.
Shining a bright light on things that scare us – and seeing them through others’ eyes – can radically change our perspective on them. We’ll use new insights we gain by scrutinizing these shadowy fears to transform them into tools for change.
This event will be interactive, irreverent and maybe even downright silly – but with serious intent. Come prepared to talk, reflect, imagine, role-play, problem solve – and enjoy spending time and swapping ideas with your co-creators of the energy revolution.
