Robert IVY currently serves as the CEO and executive VP of the American Institute of Architects. He is based in Washington D.C. and previously worked as an editor in chief of Architectural Record. Mr. Ivy helped transform this journal into one of the most widely read professional architectural publications.
Smartplanet reporter, Sun Joo Kim asked Robert Ivy of the American Institute of Architects if architects were now looking at design and materials as a way of improving occupant health in their profession. Mr. Ivy said that architects have long had a goal of encouraging health, safety and welfare in their structures. However, Robert Ivy says that many architects are now looking at planning, design and materials in a different light when it comes to public health and well-being.
Robert Ivy also highlighted the fact that there is a trend now to look beyond just public health effects or aesthetics. He says that there is now an integrated approach in architecture that looks to foster a greater sense of overall well-being. This is a good trend in his eyes. Not only should a building be safe and pleasant to live in, but it should also promote your health both physically, psychologically and even spiritually if possible. That is what he means by overall well-being.
Smartplanet then asked Robert Ivy from the American Institute of Architects about his organization’s recent sponsorship of hackathons. Robert Ivy says that hackathons are a great way to bring the entire community together to create solutions or software that can benefit all the stakeholders involved in a building project. He says that architects have no problems with such things, because they are competitive by nature in their profession. The hackathons are also a good way to bring new technology and ideas into architecture. This will only benefit the field and inject new ideas that can prove to be revolutionary in design planning, building and community outreach.
Sun Joo Kim asked of the trend of groups such as the American Institute of Architects beginning to work more and more closely and often with other professionals. He specifically inquired is this was the way architecture was heading. Robert Ivy said that architecture is indeed heading in that direction. He states that architects are no longer seen as the creative lone geniuses who design everything. Instead they are being viewed as master collaborators that supervise and work with a large and diverse team of professionals that range from builders, financiers, construction workers and managers.

When Bob Reina puts his mind to something, he is going to get it done, no excuses. He is not a big believer in excuses. He likes to see results. It is what he preaches as the CEO and founder of Talk Fusion since 2007. Keep in mind; he is not a dictator or a difficult person to work for, as that is quite the opposite. As a matter of fact, people love working for him and the creative freedom they have while working at Talk Fusion. It is one of the biggest perks of working for this tremendous company which is dominating voice, data, and chat at the moment. Two awards back it up in 2016 including the 2016 Communications Solutions Product of the Year.
This is a big step in the right direction for a company that recently reached the decade mark. As with anything in life, it starts with Bob Reina. He gives a damn about this, he is brimming with passion, and he refuses to give up on a situation. Going back to the part about excuses, he always thinks there is a solution out there. He is going to find that solution too or someone at Talk Fusion will find that solution. He knows the people that work there are very smart, and he challenges them, in a good way, to bring out the best in themselves.
He is also challenging the community in a good way to ask for more and get more out of things. It is proven by his record-breaking donation to the Tampa Bay Humane Society, which speaks volumes about the man. As they say, go big or go home. Bob Reina is not looking to go home ever. By creating this empire known as Talk Fusion, he knows it can be something real special.
As a matter of fact, it is already special. It is only going to get more special as time goes on and more people learn about it. It is why employees can give free trials to charities. It is all about spreading the word and letting people know about Talk Fusion.

Dreams and wishes are good to have, no matter how old you are or where you come from in your life. It is important to never lose sight of those and never lose those. The minute someone does that, it means they have given up on life and they are simply going through the motions. It is why Bob Reina started Talk Fusion back in 2007. He saw a need and a desire by the people out there to get more out of life and more out of their days. Instead of simply just punching a clock and going through the motions of the day to day, he wanted them to have a huge smile on their faces. He wanted them to be so happy, everyone could see it.
He also wanted to make a difference as a human being. He has been quoted as saying that with great power comes great responsibility. He is not afraid of that responsibility. In fact, he steps up to the plate when it is his turn to do something for someone. He embraces all of that to the fullest and never, for a single second, backs down from it. If there is a man or woman in need of something, they know Bob Reina is going to deliver the goods without a second thought.
He has done that with Talk Fusion, the absolute best in video technology. When people use it, they see the world through a new set of eyes. They see all of those dreams and wishes are now finally happening for them. They are no longer just sitting around and waiting for the next big thing to come along.
