Date | Location

The inaugural Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) Roundtable is a one-of-a-kind event to discuss the evolving role of the CSO in AEC firms. This invitation only event will assemble a curated group of industry leaders interested in driving higher levels of performance through evolved strategy and leadership approaches. Facilitator-led discussions and activities will be custom developed around the attendees’ goals and aspirations and be a part of a day and a half experience in an historic yet youthful vibrant college town. With a variety of networking activities and roundtable sessions, you’ll enjoy an environment that buzzes with an eclectic food scene, arts and entertainment, and miles of nature trails, beautiful parklands, and rivers.

Only second to Manhattan, Northwest Arkansas is home to more Fortune 500 companies than anywhere in the world. The “birthplace of entrepreneurship” will provide a powerful setting to discuss the evolving role of strategy and focused strategic leadership and the incredible impact it can have on an AEC firm. Zweig Group’s inaugural Chief Strategy Officer Roundtable will provide the ideal environment to imagine what is next for your AEC firm and how you can inspire a culture of entrepreneurialism. Aspiring CEOs, CSOs, or CEOs who are looking for a role to transition into after handing the reins over to a successor will all benefit from this unique experience. Come prepared to discuss this emerging role during this highly interactive session. With you in control of the subject matter, roundtable discussions strike at the heart of what you need to effect change in your organization.

Note: By invitation only - This roundtable is not open to the public and requires an invitation to attend. Interested in attending? Please contact Chad Clinehens for an invitation.
