PSMJ A/E/C Principals Bootcamp - Calgary

January 24, 2019 - January 25, 2019

PSMJ’s A/E/C Principals Bootcamp

Welcome to the ultimate two-day management course for A/E/C firm leaders—giving your proven strategies and tactics for success in virtually every facet of firm management.

Maintaining strong backlog, sustaining profitability, finding and keeping top talent...just some of the priorities that are top-of-mind with today’s A/E/C firm leaders.  Of course, knowing what to do is the first step towards being an effective principal.  But, actually doing it is often what separates the “real deal” firm leaders from the others.

“Real deal” firm leaders aren’t just born that way.  Rather, they develop through proven guidance and experience.  They develop by staying close to those who have been there and learning from the seasoned experts.  They develop by attending PSMJ’s A/E/C Principals Bootcamp.

For junior and senior firm leaders alike, PSMJ’s A/E/C Principals Bootcamp gives you two intensive days of learning and interaction that equip you with innovative strategies and effective tactics for success.


This is unlike any other management course.  Beyond being tailored specifically to the A/E/C industry, this intensive two-day program gives you first-hand access to:

      •  Proven strategies that are working right now for design firm leaders
      •  Unmatched networking with other current and aspiring A/E/C firm leaders
      •  Tools, templates, and checklists to ensure action when you return to the office
