This 90-minute panel discussion, moderated by Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, focuses on on how small firms can effectively develop their identity, brand their business and build a solid reputation. The panel of communications experts and architects, each of who has created their own strong identities, offer candid advice about defining and building your firm’s reputation, the benefits of communicating your values and distinct personality, the importance of establishing your authenticity through word of mouth and in-person contact, and why focusing on your clients’ goals and seeking their advice is essential for developing and communicating your identity.

These best practice lectures bring together leading architects, contractors, engineers, and other design professionals for evenings of focused conversation and invaluable insight.
