ACEC’s Leadership Summit 2015 brought together representatives from member firms across Canada to participate in a highly successful industry conference that featured a packed business and social progam, many networking opportunities and optional activities.

New ways of doing business: transforming for future success

Events kicked off on June 11 when participants of the pre-conference technical tour were guided through the Canadian Niagara Powerhouse and learned about the award-winning Forebay Bridge reconstruction project. The business program followed, during which industry leaders, emerging leaders and subject matter experts met for 1.5 days to share knowledge and insight on key issues for ACEC member firms. Session topics included:

  • Business and Market Trends: Where are the Opportunities?
  • State of the Practice: Exploring Models of Professional Practice
  • Transforming our Business Model
  • Trends that are Changing the Game
  • Responding to the Market: Transforming our Role

Social events were a definite highlight, culminating in a gala dinner hosted by outgoing Chair Anne Poschmann, with superb entertainment provided by internationally renowned magician Greg Frewin.

Thank you to all who participated. It is because of you that the Leadership Summit was a resounding success!
