Mark Cameron, founder and principal of Cameron MacAllister Group, will speak on issues affecting the profession post-recession. Mark Cameron will discuss the five external factors that are impacting the business and practice of architecture, such as what clients want from architects, how they select architects; the consolidation of the industry; move toward alternate delivery methods. He will also talk about the four internal factors that influence architectural practice (culture and ethos, client relationships, skills development, strategic direction, and leadership and ownership succession.) Drawing on these observations Mark will suggest ways to respond to all these influences to increase likelihood of success: what things can be done tomorrow, what should be done in the next six months, and what over the longer term.
