Executive Roundtable Series: Part 2

April 3, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Executive Roundtable Series: 

Part 2: Delivering Value – An Interactive Discussion with Private Sector Clients

It’s not too late to come participate in our exciting new event series for executive-level professionals in the AEC industry! In Part 1, which took place on February 27, we explored issues surrounding profitability in the industry and how we can deliver more meaningful value to our clients. For Part 2, we’re asking the clients themselves to share their perspectives and experiences in working with consultants.

Rest assured that this is not a traditional client panel, but rather a highly interactive workshop with the entire audience. The clients we’ve invited to participate come from a variety of backgrounds—public and private, from education to hospitality—and are prepared to share their thoughts from working with A/E/C firms in the past and talk about how we might all provide even better value to them and their organizations moving forward.

Our intention is to provoke an ongoing dialogue about what our true value is to clients and how we can deliver that value more efficiently, increasing profitability for our companies, and elevating the perception of the industry as a whole.

If you were lucky enough to attend Part 1, you know that we only scraped the surface of this conversation, and Part 2 has already generated a lot of enthusiasm. We are excited about this new format, the discussion it will provoke, and the potential outcomes for service providers and clients alike—improving relationships between the two and ultimately leading to better projects.

Learning Objectives

By attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the true value they can provide to their clients.
  • Learn what they can do to go beyond their typical level of service.
  • Understand the connections between service, value, and profitability.
  • Brainstorm ways to increase their profitability.
