When people feel their career ladder is broken and don’t know how to fix it, quitting is usually their next misstep. When it comes to managing your AEC marketing and business development career, understanding where you are on your career ladder is often as important as how to take next steps;  and then there is the question of “what to do” when the ladder seems downright broken. We will address how to manage your career from the middle of your organization, ways to create renewed perception and change, and how to handle pitfalls along the path.

Jenifer Johnson, Vice President at Thornton Tomasetti, will share insights from her 20+ years of corporate ladder climbing, including how to position yourself for internal or external promotion. Jenifer will also provide her thoughts on the abilities and skills to enhance or refine as you strive to reach the executive level.



Senior marketing and business development professionals with 10 years or more experience in the A/E/C industry and currently holding a Business Development or Marketing Director/Manager position within their firm are welcome to join the series. These sessions are geared towards those with experience managing business development, marketing budgets, firm procedures and operations with a direct staff and internal resources.

This is a members-only event. Breakfast is included in the $25 ticket.
