Successful Successor Seminar


New Orleans - March 13-15, 2019

How do you step into a new role as the directional leader of the firm? How do you go from being a colleague to being a supervisor? How – and when – do you transition client relationships as you move from the project team to the executive team? How do you work with outgoing management, board, and existing leadership infrastructure while also implementing your own exciting ideas for change? How much business education do you need? How do you balance strategic initiatives with the day-to-day stuff that made you successful in your career prior to this point? How do you challenge “the way we’ve always done things” without isolating the current leadership team?

The Successful Successor roundtable is an exclusive event for income strategic leaders of firms and newly-minted strategic leaders of these firms. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss the highest-level issues facing newcomers to the c-suite and to individuals who are preparing to take on a high level management role in today’s AEC firm. This two-day event includes educational and networking sessions in an upscale setting and is part of Zweig Group’s new Experience Education series. 

The program is led by industry experts with extensive experience working with and leading AEC firms. The two-day agenda covers areas of discussion determined by those in attendance. It’s presented in a guided discussion format to encourage discussion among all attendees.
