Program Overview:

The CEO Roundtable Retreat is a unique opportunity for AEC firm leaders to engage and interact with industry peers to discuss current issues facing firms today, explore industry trends and next practices, and confront the biggest challenges they face leading their firms.  Zweig Group’s CEO Chad Clinehens, PE, moderates the program guiding group conversations, encouraging integration and networking, and ensuring attendees gain valuable insight, new ideas and tools – and a new network of colleagues – to foster effective leadership at their respective firms.

Come prepared to discuss your biggest challenges and successes during this highly interactive session. With you in control of the subject matter, roundtable discussions strike at the heart of what you need to effect change in your organization. 

Past attendees of CEO Roundtable events state “there is no better forum for dialogue than with peers experiencing the same issues I am” and “the statistics provided by Zweig Group through their continual research of firms and firm leaders gives me the exact benchmarking data I need to justify change and action in my firm.”

In addition to hard-hitting advice and focused group discussions, the CEO Roundtable experience also includes a day-long networking experience (with a trip to NASA in the works and a brewery tour on tap for the Houston event). 


In addition to issues YOU bring to discuss, topics include:

  • Firm Organization
  • Leading Change
  • Delegation
  • Growing Your Successor
  • Ownership Transition planning
  • Building the C-suite
  • Board and Governance Issues
  • Time Management and Balancing Work/Home Life
