September 24, 2020 – 7:00pm ET 
Speaker: Rowley Mossop  
Topic: Business Fundamentals 
Webinar | 2 CEU | Introductory | Financial Management 


Architects are seldom trained in business, but often find themselves running small enterprises in a highly competitive environment. This webinar introduces the elements of an architectural business at a high level - from marketing to finance - and shows how they work together to contribute to success. It's intended as a first step towards learning how to manage a practice.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Name five pillars of a successful, mid-size architectural practice.  
  • Articulate the basic criteria for good performance in each of the five pillars, and  
  • Describe how each pillar contributes to creative and business success.
