  • What if you could test your most audacious and counter-intuitive business management ideas in a confidential and non-competitive setting, getting IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK from peer A/E/C firm leaders?
  • What if you could STEP BACK from the daily demands of running your A/E/C firm TO LOOK AHEAD and re-imagine solutions to business growth obstacles, from talent shortages to project management processes to BD development strategy and so much more?

Over 3 days of confidential and frank discussion with no more than 25 senior leaders, we'll dive deep into the biggest NEW issues that will determine financial performance and growth excellence for A/E/C firms in the coming decade, or keep them mired in mediocrity:

Is Your Strategic Plan Ready for What's Coming? 

See how the most successful firms are revising their approaches to talent acquisition and retention, capital investment, M&A, market expansion and more, in light of a shifting business landscape and rare opportunities to set bolder strategic goals. 

Is Your BD Getting You The Right Work?

You're probably looking at a full backlog right now, but if the projects in your pipeline aren't delivering maximum returns, it's time to differentiate your firm and start commanding higher prices.  We'll share peer leader experiences for executing a new BD strategy that lands the most profitable projects. 

How Can You Find the Talent You Need?

Finding and keeping great people is the biggest growth hurdle for A/E/C leaders right now. We've got proven ideas for easing the shortage without breaking the bank, plus some radically disruptive ideas for coming at the problem from a fresh new angle!

What will A/E/C Tech Disrupt Next?

We'll examine the highest ROI tech investments to make now, and where A/E/C firms are wasting resources on low-return software and hardware.  This is your essential "big picture" data-backed discussion of the near-horizon tech applications that will upend your business if you aren't prepared.

Ready for the Coming A/E/C Project Delivery Revolution?

It's time to abandon the productivity tracker everyone hates, the timesheet, and we'll share how. Plus give you smart tactics for improving productivity in a remote work environment, how peer leaders are taking control of project scope and keeping clients on schedule, and new PM tech that's coming to a competitor firm near you!

Is Your Exit Strategy Ready For A Radically Changed Workforce?

A vastly different future is coming soon and many A/E/C  ownership transition plans are aren't ready. We get into the economic, social, and demographic changes that should be causing you to adjust key elements, and discuss solutions to ownership buy-in, share pricing, and growth strategy conflicts.
