Great things in the pipeline

One of the perks at PDT - Bryant Park

There’s a bounce in my step these days, and the entire office is noticeably more chipper than usual.  Even the over-worked under-loved interns are twittering (metaphorically, not digitally).  Spring is not the cause, though sunny lunches in Bryant Park tend to put a smile on one’s face.  No, the buzz around here is because PDT has some great things in the pipeline.

PDT has grown between 50-100% every year since we formed in 2004.  The pace of expansion has been exhausting, and necessity has often forced us to delay launching various new initiatives or innovations.  But after winning the Skoll Prize, adding new staff, and securing some more long-term donor funding, we are waiting no longer.

So watch this space.  Over the next few months we will be:

-Opening a new country office

-Expanding our Afghan presence

-Throwing out our current websites and launch something entirely different

-Totally revamping the Building Market’s online platforms

-Hiring a team of Guerilla Blogger Ninjas (to borrow a phrase from Ben Popken)

-Hosting a fundraising event in NYC

-And something super cool, super secret, which could be huge, and which I can’t even talk about.  Let’s call it “Project Farol”

Nothing makes us happier around here than new ideas.  No wonder we’re giddy.

Which reminds me, we need more people on the team to help us to do all this.  We’re hiring.  So if you’re interested, take a look here.  Have fun. Change the world (and eat lunch in Bryant Park).

Change is afoot. We can feel it...

    Is that grass real? We have water restrictions in Melbourne so don’t really have lawn like that…..very cool. For me Bryant Park makes me think of Project Runway and Heidi Klum :)
