Leadership Summit on the Business of Design

| The Harvard Club, New York, NY

“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 2017 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.
