Welcome to the Bridging the Gap podcast. This is the show where we empower you to transform industries by championing innovation. I’m your host Todd Weyandt, Director of Marketing at Applied Software. This podcast formed as an online video series a couple years ago. We looked around the industry and realized that there was a major gap between the real-world practicalities and ever-changing technology applications.
Team Equals Tenure
Is it possible to guarantee success? If so, what building blocks do you need to implement? Join host Todd and guest Bryson Reaume as they discuss building the best team for your project, how to stay connected when you might be working remote, what the world should know about the contractor’s point of view, and the shifting goals and mindsets of project teams.
Bryson Reaume is the Founder and CEO of Reaume Richardson, a Los Angeles-based contracting company with 20 years of experience revitalizing cityscapes throughout California. His knowledge was built from the ground up, as he worked in the trades for half a decade before moving into executive management.
The Marketing Problem in Construction Continues
As someone in the construction industry, how do you begin to tell your story? Join host Todd and guest Katlyn Slocum as they discuss best strategies for getting “the word” out about your company, the difference between “old school” and “new school” marketing tactics, and how to know you’re being effective at communicating with your target audience.
The Old Trades are Gone
We all have a story to tell—what’s yours? Join host Todd and guest Jessica Bannister as they discuss the growing audience that comes with globalization, the difficulties we face in reaching and maintaining the attention of the younger generation, the essential nature of collaboration in modern times, and much more.
Our Modular Future
When you think of modular and preconstruction, what comes to mind? Are there some misconceptions around the implications of these building styles, and how do we challenge those misconceptions? Join host Todd and guest Audree Grubesic as they discuss the parts of modular construction that go unseen, how the “seismic shift” in the industry will impact this form of construction, and how innovation plays a huge part in getting the word out about sustainable building.
Lean Construction: The Roadblocks and Shortcuts
Join host Todd and guest Tammy McConaughy as they discuss lean manufacturing vs. lean construction, some of the best and easiest ways to reduce waste on the construction field, how to move away from being “risk averse” in the industry, and the end goals that we can look forward to when it comes to lean construction.
Can Sustainability Make it Past the Boardroom?
Is sustainability leaving the boardroom? Are you effectively communicating throughout your organization the implications of sustainability or are you keeping those conversations in a small group? We as a construction industry need to work together more to reimagine how we do things that reduce waste, make construction more efficient and make it better for the environment. Advance Workshop director Ismail Makda joined the show to talk about sustainability and the expectations that arise from innovation.
Great cross section of perspectives
Really like the mix of both industry advocacy and innovation as the underlying theme. Def one to keep up with! Keep it up Todd!
This is a great listen for anyone in the industry! I’m blown away!
Key to a successful podcast is a great host. Todd was able to steer the interview in a way that got the best out of me. Mentioned things about Commissioning that i hadn't said in years. Had a lot of fun on this podcast, would highly recommend!
