Ryan does a significant amount of public speaking and has earned a reputation as an organized and candid speaker who encourages questions while translating complex issues into everyday language and action items. In addition to the conventions, trade shows and community events he’s worked, you can find his comments published in various media like Southern Living, Atlanta Home Improvement Magazine, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, ABC’s Nightline television program and BuilderOnline.com.
Working Within Your Format
Finding someone who appreciates the format within which you work can be a significant challenge. If your segment is three minutes, you don’t need a four minute answer to your first question. The same applies to writers with a limited word count – you don’t need a dissertation. Then there’s the cardinal sin of archispeak: using industry specific terms (about which nobody really cares) to create an air of importance.
Translation of Complex Issues + Context
The day-to-day issues we address can be technical issues like building science though even the relatively simple issues are complex because they’re related to so many other moving parts of a typical project. So, even if we explain the zoning ordinance, you need to know how it relates to the building codes, design decisions and where you need to account for each issue in the course of your project. We create that context by changing scales: graduating from executive overview to the details of a particular part of the process. That empowers our audience to set priorities and make timely decisions.
Forecasting + Perspective
Forecasting is a helpful way for us to synthesize the huge amount of data we collect and process in the course of our work. It gives our audience sense of what planning should be underway to anticipate emerging technologies and practices. Our speaking, community service and networking gives us the perspective of public opinion so we have a better sense of if or when we might adopt those emerging technologies and practices.
Sharing Our Network
If we can’t meet your needs, we’re happy to help you find someone within our network. We use our network to keep in touch and identify emerging technologies rather than looking at connection counts as a score. We’ve met lots of great people and we’d like for you to meet them too.
We really appreciate the opportunity for discussion with writers, producers and other members of the media since you also offer a valuable perspective, research and analysis. We travel frequently and can often join you for an interview or just a cup of coffee to compare notes. When that’s not convenient, we can typically schedule a call or video conference.
If we don’t already know you, please take a moment to send us a note through our Contact page and use our social media links to get connected. You can also find more information on our Services page. Thanks!
