SMPS SFBAC Business Leaders Forum - East & South Bays
SMPS is launching a new series for chapter members who are in senior business development and marketing roles.  Our Business Leaders Forum will group 10-20 individuals for quarterly round-table discussions centered around business strategies, resource management, and professional development. The series will provide a venue for open communication and sharing of lessons-learned and best practices among colleagues in the A/E/C professions.  

In this forum, business leaders will discuss and share success (and not so successful) stories about how they support their firms' leadership and guide management teams through difficult and challenging business decisions.  Senior members will learn from peers who have charted their paths to leadership positions within their firms, have built and fostered business development cultures that work vertically throughout their organizations, and who manage staff and structure their internal departments to align with greater business goals.

For the 2011-2012 SMPS calendar, the series will feature one morning session per quarter.
