"I completed a Certificate in Sustainability
Leadership at Emory University. In all my studies there, never did we
have an instructor who so successfully tackled the big picture of sustainability,
all while being so engaging. You truly are very good at what you
"I have attended a lot of sales training events and yours was one of the best. This is the first time in my professional career I have had sales people asking for more training frrom one of our sales training sessions."
|"I thought this was one on the best training sessions
I have attended. What I like most was a combination of the way you presented
the material combined with your own personal experiences and the feedback
and comments/ thoughts / questions of the people in the class. I liked the
interaction of the class. I enjoyed speaking with and appreciate the comments
from everyone who attended the class. You confirmed many of the impacts
related to sewer and water issues."

|"I have been through many different classes and experienced many different
teaching styles and various levels of enthusiasm. Greg Hamra was far and
away the best instructor I had since graduating from my Masters program
in May 2012. I hope we cross paths again in the future."

"Thanks again for your personal touch in helping me complete this accreditation. I took my test this morning and passed with a 199! Your passion for the material and the caring follow up is what inspired me to spend the time needed to cross the finish line." (class photo)- Bret Cummock, PE, PMP, DBIA, LEED Green Associate

"Thanks to you. The delivery of the content for the test preparation
was superb. However, the awareness you created in some of us regarding
the disconnect between our current habits and the impact to our world
and environment, created a more profound and lasting impact. Your real
life personal stories shared with us will certainly modify some behaviors
for good." (class photo)
"Great course. The presentation was fantastic. It was obvious you are a professional educator. You were able to keep the material interesting to everyone, and to keep such a large group on track was an amazing feat in itself. Further, your passion for the subject is very inspiring." (class photo)

"Hi Greg, Thank you so very much for a great class. You have amazing energy and maintain your sense of humor in spite of the monumentally dry (LEED) material. You brought the subject matter to life and made it palatable and even fun." (class photo)

"In my career, which includes many years of experience and education,
completing Architecture (5 years) and also Masters in Town Planning (2
years) completed from one of the best institutes of Asia, I have never
met somebody who could make course material so interesting. As a technical
person myself, I understood the subject partially, but your effort, illustrations
that you have compiled, and extra effort that you made by clicking photographs
of the LEED certified buildings in Hong Kong during nights after classes
really impressed me and showed me how much dedication you have for this
purpose." (class photo)
| "In twenty plus years of Airline O&M experience and in my second career of Facilities Maintenance and Operations, I have met two people that I truly believe are passionate about what they do. One works for the DSS (Defense Security Services) and the other works for Everblue. I was moved by the commitment and the overall passion you put into teaching and leading by example."

|"I am enjoying the webinar class very much!! The way you teach is great! My friend, who studies finances and has no particular interest in LEED, was near me yesterday during class, laughing at your jokes and pictures, and he ended up listening to the whole class!! :D"

|"Greg, thanks for doing such a great job teaching the LEED GA course.
Your ability to turn an inordinate amount of material into two days of interesting,
digestible information helped me score 195
on my exam. Of all the professors, instructors and presenters I've had in
the past 20 years, none comes close to you as a teacher. Your passion and
ability to keep the class engaged made the class very enjoyable. Two days
went by too fast”
