A Message from Keynote Speaker Dan Clark
Build Business: Dream Big!
Things are different now. Recovery is not going to be what recovery has been in the past. The new reality is “back to the basics” to make our professional services firms efficient and agile—and ready with the answers to address our clients’ own new realities. Now is the time to escalate creative, disruptive thinking that transforms our businesses, markets, and communities!
Build Business: Dream Big!, the 2013 SMPS National Conference, will seek to explore these “new norms” in the design and building industry, where there must be close coordination between core fundamentals and BIG innovation. As an attendee, you will gain critical information, dynamic strategies, and valuable knowledge that will allow you to take immediate action to dream big and translate solid plans into executable strategies for your firm.
For three magical days, you will experience your choice of powerful learning sessions, provocative keynote speakers, and plenty of networking opportunities to learn from peers and make priceless business contacts.
