OUR CONFERENCES

Executive Leadership

Since 1990, EFCG has hosted its annual legacy CEO Conference, bringing together executive leaders from across the A/E/C space to engage on the industry’s biggest challenges. As the International Monetary Fund warns that the economy may head into the worst downturn since the Great Depression, now more than ever, A/E/C firms need to understand the financial state of the industry and draw from best practices to navigate the “new normal.”

 

During EFCG’s virtual Executive Leadership Conference on October 7-9, 2020, EFCG will pull from its over 30 years of proprietary industry data to critically assess industry performance and disclose high-impact insights. Distinguished panelists and keynote speakers will explore shifting industry trends and draw from their experience to dive into decisive topics such as managing the new workforce, seizing cash flow opportunities, and reshaping technology’s role in what and how firms deliver to the market. 

 

In light of the pandemic’s impact, EFCG will host this event virtually for the first time this year.  Hosted on a high-quality, interactive platform, this event will combine EFCG’s premier CEO and CFO Conferences to bring attendees the same rich content and esteemed speakers, all on a larger scale. Unique to this year’s event, an Enterprise Level Ticket welcomes up to five of your firm’s senior-level team members and provides each with on-demand access to all Conference sessions. For more information contact Dimitri Milionis at dmilionis@efcg.com.

The primary focus of this conference is to help CEOs better manage the leadership, strategy, finances, profitability and funding of their firms.  All participating firms are required to complete a detailed financial survey, covering over 150 different business metrics including past and projected performance.  This data is analyzed and presented by EFCG at the conference, and is followed by several panels, speakers and workshops, each covering a different set of topics and issues raised by the survey.  Over the past 28 years, this data and the discussion at the CEO Conference, have become the primary source of data for CEOs in this industry, by which to plan their business strategies, to help identify key challenges, and to lead and improve their firm's performance. 

Key Topics to be covered this year include:

Industry trends and outlook

Preparing your business for a recession

What really drives profitability

Diversification – what does it take to be successful?

Ownership transitions vs leadership transitions

Managing and motivating your leadership team

Advantages / disadvantages of different ownership models

Post-merger integration

Competing for talent

Trends in cybersecurity
