Over $12 Million Lost Dollars Were Found at Last Year’s 2018 AEC Profitability Summit!

The 2018 Summit, held at the beautiful Eden Roc resort in Miami Beach, Florida, was a tremendous success. Attendees enthusiastically looked for and found lost dollars and shared ideas and proven solutions in an interactive environment.

Focus on Four Common Areas Where Businesses Can Improve

The Summit helped A&E firm executives work on developing new approaches in four areas of their business:

Selling on value and differentiating their firms;

Developing effective project management processes;

Increasing employee productivity and utilization; and

Implementing positive accountability and performance management programs.

Many firms had multiple leaders attend which enabled them to work together with their colleagues on their firm’s most challenging areas. As attendees identified opportunities for improvement in their business they were encouraged to assign a dollar value to the impact of implementing a solution. The leaders returned to their offices motivated to implement solutions and to communicate the financial benefits to increase staff buy-in.

What Last Year’s Attendees Had to Say…


“Hearing how other firms have implemented fixes to issues was interesting and inspiring.”

“Taught me new ways to think about profit, planning, and integrating employees as stakeholders in projects.”

“Very valuable to focus this time around team improvements! Workbook well designed to kick up the best ideas.”

“Connection between a strong project management program, accountability and resulting profit is critical to our success.”

“Excellent networking with Industry peers.”

“Like the idea of giving financial training to all employees.”

“Gave me good ideas to address accountability issues”

“Revamp PM training and increasing billing rates”

“It was helpful to hear other firms ideas on how to tackle common issues. It was also helpful to see that many of the changes our firm has made in the past 2-3 years have been a step in the right direction, Perhaps even ahead of the pack somewhat.”

“The summit made us focus on the reality of our firms, prioritize issues, and create an action plan. Having this new motivation and focus will definitely be valuable to our bottom line.”

“Profitability culture is a must.”
