February may be a short month, but its last week is action-packed. First, the ASLA 2022 Call for Presentations closes later today, Tuesday, February 22, 2022. Then, this Friday, February 25, is the deadline to register to enter the ASLA Professional Awards, with submissions due March 18. And next Monday, February 28, is the deadline to apply for ASLA’s new SKILL | ED workshop, highlighted below.
Thoughtful Connections and Growing Impact is a 3-month business development series for emerging business owners and business development professionals. This workshop will coach professionals on how to build a business with purpose and intention. At the end of the workshop, you will have clear direction on how to create a business development plan, client engagement strategies to increase your project backlog, and the tools you need to create an accountability plan to keep you (or your team) on task.
This workshop is for you if:
- You want to build your brand and attract your ideal clients.
- You are looking for systems and processes to keep you focused and organized.
- You are within the first five years of owning your own practice.
- You are a business development professional in the landscape architecture industry.
The workshop will offer a blended curriculum for three modules over a 3-month period, including a mix of virtual facilitation, self-paced learning, and action-learning projects. It will be facilitated by Emily Henry, founder of Connect For, a business development consulting and coaching firm. With 17 years of experience, Emily leverages her relationships, communication skills, and expertise to partner with owners and emerging business development to grow their business, impact, and influence. Emily is also the Director of Business Development at Studio Outside, a landscape architectural practice based in Dallas, Texas.
Up to 15 participants will be selected by the ASLA Professional Practice Committee via application review.
