Hear directly from the President & CEO of a once "old school" A/E firm and the revolutionary transformation of its environment, culture, and reward structure. The firm has engaged its employees in ways that have markedly evolved the 160-year-old organization in impressive ways.
This presentation will illustrate an emphasis on an internal culture of leadership that runs in the background at all levels, improved business development and marketing results, better risk management, an increasingly engaged workforce, improved technical quality, customer service & retention, and internal coordination. The presentation will have an emphasis on the corresponding payback to the company, clients, and employees, as well as why all leaders interested in keeping their firms relevant should be doing likewise.
