2015 AIBC Annual Conference: Using Innovative Strategies to Strengthen Your Practice
October 14, 2015
Design professionals help their clients every day to establish innovative strategies and tactics and then implement these. Yet doing the same thing in their own practice is often regarded as the dark side of the profession… treated with indifference. If design professions are going to continue to have meaningful impact on the built environment, they first have to strengthen their own firm. This session will help evolving firms and emerging practitioners realize they need to focus more effort on designing their practice.
