Industry leader AEC Business Solutions, LLC is launching a new conference aimed at helping Architecture and Engineering firm leaders to improve business management practices with the primary goal of increasing profits.
The inaugural AEC Profitability Summit will take place September 24-25, 2015 in Tyson’s Corner, VA. For the first time ever, the entire conference will focus entirely on profitability in A&E firms and utilize proprietary templates and other tools to guide attendees towards development of a 12-month plan to improve their firms. A distinctive line-up of industry experts will offer fresh content and specific hands-on solutions to put participants on the road to increasing profits.
“We expect this Summit to be the beginning of a one-year journey for each participant, that will allow them to learn and implement several key initiatives,” states June R. Jewell, CPA, President and best-selling author. “Our Summit is an excellent opportunity for forward thinking leaders interested in taking their firms to the next level by transforming employee behavior.”
Planned sessions include: “Leveraging Your Strategic Plan for Improved Firm Performance” where Ray Kogan, AIA, and President of Kogan & Company, along with Kogan & Company Senior Consultant Cara Bobchek, will take a candid look at potential stumbling blocks to implementing strategic plans.
During the “Five Keys to Project Profitability” session, Bo Newman, CPA, and CFO Officer of Cuhaci & Peterson Architects, Engineers and Planners will take a practical and real world approach to vital project performance metrics. He will share proven practices for communicating project results and techniques for continual measurement of project profitability to improve financial results.
“We’ve pulled together industry specialists who will address our clients’ biggest issues including managing employee performance, reducing scope creep, failure to bill and collect for extra services, and will offer ideas for improving productivity that will positively impact a firm’s bottom line,” states Ms. Jewell. “Summit attendees will develop a plan of action to implement what they’ve learned, with specific goals and measures to take over the following 12 months.”
A detailed, personalized plan for implementing profitable change as well as tools such as workbooks, templates, checklists and other hands-on tools will help Summit attendees to apply the ideas and concepts offered to their firm’s unique challenges.
The goal for this inaugural AEC Profitability Summit is to offer a supportive environment for firms to make significant changes as they begin this 12-month project. Summit participants will gain the tools they need to immediately start making adjustments that will increase their firm’s profits.
