Guest Bio:
Hollie Schmidt is Director of the Resilience + Sustainability Business Advisory. In her 26 years of practice, she has honed an integrated planning and delivery approach, with a particular focus on master planning and site selection. Serving a broad range of projects, she leads large, diverse teams of planners, architects and the full spectrum of engineers and technical experts to assist with decision-making, scenario evaluation and implementation plans. With a strong foundation in facilitation, coordination, communication, and problem solving, she has a long history of successfully leading mega, complex projects for clients with large real estate and facilities holdings and delivering sustainable and resilient solutions.

Hollie’s area of practice includes a focus on resiliency planning either as a preventative or recovery service for larger-scale clients who are experiencing vulnerabilities to natural or man-made disasters particularly as it relates to climate change. She has led inter-disciplinary teams that deliver sustainable solutions across the natural and man-made environments for multi-billion-dollar programs as well as more moderate facilities. She also supports resilient and sustainable solutions through extremely compelling business case analysis focused on life-cycle savings and non-financial benefits such as wellness, environmental and community impact and market recognition.

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
