Leadership Lunch:

Leading and Competing in Challenging Environments in the AEC Industry – Be Prepared, Be Aware and Be Informed

What is the future of public and private projects for the next few years? According to Building Congress, “While private sector investment remains the primary driver of construction, government infrastructure spending is predicted to continue increasing through 2020”. Hear from industry leaders in their market segment on market drivers and demand constraints. The pursuit and tracking of new work is becoming more competitive. The key for leaders is to better understand client needs, critical issues and how to best respond to their challenges. SMPS is hosting a panel session that will bring together AEC industry leaders to discuss their perspective on the market moving forward and how to differentiate your firm’s value against the growing competition and ever evolving marketplace. Hear from leaders who have joined the consultant community after having distinguished careers with client agencies.
