The CEO Roundtable Retreat is designed to be an inspiring experience — with presentations and one on one interaction with industry experts, and ample networking time and candid conversation. We want you to leave the experience armed with new ideas, new tools, and new friends… all helping you become a more effective leader of a more successful company. Meeting other CEOs from AEC firms across the U.S., enjoying a variety of activities and discussions together, and getting hard hitting advice from Chad Clinehens, Zweig Group, CEO, and other experienced consultants, will be just some of the powerful takeaways from this one-of-a-kind event.

In addition to the social activities planned for the event, we will couple this experience with conversations about the most pressing issues and ideas in AEC firms today. With you in control of the subject matter, we plan to conduct roundtable discussions on a variety of topics that will strike at the heart of what you need to take back to the office and effect change in your organization.
