Most of us will eventually have to address that most basic of human fears: public speaking. Fortunately, practice tends to dispel this boogeyman. That's why it's a skill we practice at the Habitat X Conferences.

But if you're interested in polishing your skills right now, I recommend that you view this great list of TED Talks. And then get out there and speak in public whenever you can. 

And finally, please tell us a quick story about YOUR speaking experiences. How have YOU gotten over your fear of public speaking?

#habitatx  
If you’ve got a presentation to give at work or school — or are perhaps getting ready to speak at a TEDx event? — we recommend these talks to help get you pumped up.

The Building Performance Institute has gone multi-lingual with their new Spanish language Principles of Building Science textbook and online exam.

This gives BPI access to a huge untapped market in the U.S., Latin America, and Spain. Plus -- by spreading the knowledge of building science just a little further -- this makes our job of creating sustainable housing across the Earth just a little easier.

We'll throw the support of Habitat X behind this initiative in every way possible. Stay tuned!
Available BPI certifications including building analyst certification, building envelope, multifamily certification, heating, air conditioning, and more.

Happy Day of the Dead, from the faculty of Habitat X.

Here is a potent little four-minute video of Amory Lovins, founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute, discussing the evolution of power production in the US. It's a compelling argument.

The topic is covered thoroughly in RMI's book Reinventing Fire, and we'll convene a good old fashioned book group to discuss it at Habitat X Summer National.

Who are the AltroCentric Leaders?

"They have a more intuitive understanding of the contextual nature of leadership and an empathetic ability to attract, retain and motivate the increasingly diverse, independent and remote workforces of the future."  

Heck, yes. We can all thrive under the New Leadership. Learn more at #HabitatX  .

It's a great part of the Habitat X tradition -- now entering its fourth year -- that we appeal to smart professionals housing everywhere to share their best presentations at Habitat X Summer National. 

We'll open the call for presenters this Friday February 20th. In the meantime, here's a good TedX blog to help you get your ideas organized. 

Do you have a killer presentation in you -- one that you think will move and inspire the people of Habitat X? Then add a comment here on Facebook and tell us the proposed title of your session.

Oh -- and this is the big announcement, spilled here a few days early: the 2015 Habitat X Summer National Conference will be held July 21-23 at Big Sky Montana. Mark your calendars!
Stepping onto the TED or TEDx stage -- or speaking in front of any group of people, for that matter -- is truly nerve-wracking. Will you remember everything you wanted to say, or get so discombobul...

I love Duarte! How about: 'Eliminating your carbon footprint could cost no more than some planning.'

We're now laying the ground-work for 2015 Summer National Conference. We are creating some important new benefits for our members -- so I think it'll be worth your time to attend this year's event.

We'll announce the exact time and place on February 1, 2015. But we can tell you three things right now:

1)  We will again stage this not-to-be-missed conference in the mountains of the Western US.

2)  The event take place over three days in July.

3)  You can lock in your early-bird discount right now, at no obligation, by visiting the Habitat X website.

Many of the participants have said that this was the best Habitat X ever. We'll let them be the judge of that, but we can say with great certainty that, with this event, our mission has become more refined than ever. And that mission? "To support the professional development of the most forward-looking individuals in the home performance industry as they create the future of sustainable housing." Amen! #habitatx

Life is short.
The Habitat X Summer National Conference will take place on the northern border of Yellowstone National Park this August 25-28.
Wouldn't you like to join us and hear the wolves howl? 
#HabitatX   #homeperformance  
Wolves had been absent from Yellowstone National Park for more than 70 years when they were reintroduced in the 1990s – and their return had some surprising benefits.

This is a fabulous TED blog on the science of presentation. We've worked these skills to an art at Habitat X and we'll present a session on this very topic at the Summer National conference this August 25-28.
