I’ve always been fascinated by how big structures are built, whether they be SFMOMA, Lumina, Salesforce Tower, Apple Park, Transbay Terminal, Levi’s Stadium, etc. It’s complicated, and given that my mechanical aptitude is below the poverty line, I have decided that I can best contribute to the industry by educating folks about what makes these structures happen.
I’ve started a company, The LISA Movement LLC, that is developing a series of online talent and business development events for the construction industry (a large and very old industry). These events will take place multiple times a year in major metro areas across the country.
LISA ….Short for Mona Lisa/one-of-a kind
The construction industry faces increasing costs to build at a time when the best young minds are flocking to the world of high-tech. Of course, the industry has never been a magnet for bright minds.
The LISA Movement is stepping up to this challenge by creating an online space for up and coming talent to be inspired and excited.
LISA Events Will Include:
Bright Minds Initiative: a video library, searchable by discipline, showcasing construction luminaries and their rise to prominence: professionally produced, visually impactful and designed to attract, educate and inspire the next generation.
Online talent marketplaces: one-of-a-kind virtual events designed for efficient applicant interaction, improved recruiting ROI, networking and business development.
LISA has the lofty goal of shining a light on what those in the construction industry know to be true: its dynamic ecosystem contains extraordinary career potential.
As you may know, I have been writing the monthly Pulse of the Market newsletter for 10+ years; even published a book, which by all accounts was not a runaway best seller.
The Pulse of the Market stops (or not) with this issue. If you need/want me, I can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for the foreseeable future.
