Hi, I’m Jeff Girard with The Concrete Countertop Institute.
I don’t have slick photos of myself to show you. This photo is from my one and only professional photo shoot, during an alumni event in 2019. I hope you like it, because it’s all I’ve got!
What I do have is almost 2 decades of experience teaching and consulting all over the world, and the success stories of the thousands of people I’ve helped. I’m here to help you create YOUR success story, not to brag about myself.
Although you should know, I’m an engineer. I can’t help it, I was born that way. I went on to become a Licensed Professional Engineer specializing in Civil Engineering – you know, the people who can create bridges and buildings that won’t fall down.
I approach everything from an engineering problem solving standpoint, based on sound scientific principles. My approach is not based on experience that comes from making mistakes over and over and eventually finding solutions but not understanding *why* those solutions work. I can tell you why.
Design is great, and a lot of the creativity that goes into problem solving also helps me with design. A designer can make a building look good, but an engineer can make sure it doesn’t fall down. Who would you rather have on your team?
