Reputation Design+Build

Posted on 05/15/15 No Comments


It’s the dawn of a new era in the architectural, engineering, construction, and environmental industries. Gone are the days of clients hiring firms based solely upon their past project experience. Today it is all about the people – and not just the project leaders, but every individual working on a project. So whether you know it or not, you are a brand. It doesn’t matter if you are a sole proprietorship or employed by a megafirm. People do business with people, and clients want “branded” professionals working on their projects. Because of this, it is imperative that you build and maintain your reputation, which in turn will help you advance your career, bring in new projects for your firm, and make you irreplaceable. Reputation Design+Build demonstrates just how important it is for every professional to elevate their personal brand, and provides a series of tools that you can use to enhance your reputation and make you a sought-after thought leader. Inside you’ll also find a personal marketing plan and gap analysis template to provide a roadmap for elevating your career.
