Virtual Workshop

Due to COVID-19, firms were thrown overnight into a virtual world to keep projects moving and build client relationships. Developing and deepening client relationships, along with identifying new opportunities, is key to AEC firms’ continued growth and success. As we look ahead toward the coming weeks and months, how can you continue to connect with existing and potential clients?

In this interactive and conversational workshop, participants will be equipped with basic techniques to enhance their virtual client development activities. Bring your questions and concerns, and be ready to actively participate.
