What Would You Say If…..

(If You Had 30 Seconds To Address Our Industry?) 

That’s what I had when accepting the Tony Woods Award at the recent Affordable Comfort Conference in Baltimore.   Actually there was no time scheduled but Larry Zarcher’s a nice guy, so he bent the schedule … “OK, but no more than 30 seconds.”

Larry Zarcher presenting Tony Woods award to Dave Robinson ... and giving Dave 30 seconds to say whatever he wanted.

The audience was a thousand of the most influential folks in the Home Performance Industry. Having an opinion or two, and since spontaneity is not a problem for me, I was happy to have the opportunity.

So I said, “Just imagine that everyone in here were to go out and buy a foreclosed home this year and do all the home performance they want to do and recorded the results.   When we all get together next year, Imagine the stories we’d hear and the party we’d have!  I’ll see you in Denver,  I love this industry, Thank you.”

I was humbled and honored to receive the Tony Woods award and I think my 30 second challenge merits further consideration.   I have so enjoyed working on foreclosed homes.   Because I own them, they are “tabula rasa” I can make quick decisions, change my mind, and turn on a dime.  This has allowed me to innovate and try new things, some of which have been published, and some are still brewing.   It is a Home Performance Skunk Works of sorts.    Imagine if a thousand of the best minds in our industry had their own private Skunk Works laboratory!

That’s my vision.   What about you?   If you had 30 seconds to address the Home Performance Industry, What would you say?
