Leadership Summit on the Business of Design
November 13, 2017 - November 14, 2017
The Leadership Summit on the Business of Design hosted by the Design Futures Council is a gathering of C-Suite executives from across Architecture, Engineering and Construction to explore and discuss risks, challenges, and opportunities in driving quality, profitability, and running a better business.
“Risk” is a word that inspires unease, but hidden within risk are opportunities that can be exploited. Identifying, understanding, mitigating, and managing risk are vital skills that leaders need—but few have truly mastered how to understand risk within the context of running a successful A/E/C enterprise.
The Leadership Summit on the Business of Design focuses on the many faces of risk. Issues such as market conditions in the coming year, questions of professional relevance, persistent gender bias in leadership, and the perils of forgetting our roots will form the agenda and prepare leaders to navigate the dangers and opportunities in a rapidly shifting environment.
