This 90-minute video course, presented by five principals of renowned architecture and design firms, kicks off AIA San Francisco’s series for small and mid-size firm practitioners. The course provides insights into how to start and develop a successful architecture or design firm, how to effectively market and brand a firm, how to cultivate relationships with other design professionals, and how to stay true to a vision as you guide your firm through various phases of development. Each of the presenters offers candid advice about balancing the demands of running a firm, collaborating with clients, motivating and managing staff, obtaining desirable commission, and bringing in enough cash each month as they work towards their longer term visions. Simultaneously inspirational and eye-opening, this panel discussion offers emerging professionals invaluable lessons about the opportunities and demands of starting their own practice and seeing one’s way through the sleepless nights that accompany ownership.
This course is presented in high definition video and is available on computers, smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
