Leveraging Generational Diversity for Strategic Advantage

Panel Discussion

Generational diversity is a source of strategic advantage for design firms who understand how to leverage three generations working together. This candid session offers a unique opportunity to discuss the successes and challenges of firms addressing leadership transition and its impact on client relationships. Learn how to define principals’ roles and responsibilities in passing the baton to young architects, and the young architects’ roles and responsibilities in fostering the continuity of key business relationships.


Designing the Client Experience

Panel Discussion

This 90-minute seminar will enable participants to understand the importance of client service experiences, and they will take away valuable tools which they can apply in their own architectural practices. Our presentation will include results of very recent research with clients and design firms. We will engage the audience with interactive poll questions in each part of our agenda, as shown below, to stimulate questions and discussion throughout the program. The presenters have all led successful programs at previous AIA national and regional component conventions, as well as other industry events.
