Virtual CEO Roundtable


Special Focus Series: Building a Best Firm To Work For


This special edition virtual CEO roundtable will focus on what it takes to be a best firm to work for. The four-session virtual series will be led by Dan Williams, retired CEO of Garver, a #1 national Best Firm To Work For. Along with Zweig Group leaders, the sessions will develop powerful recruiting and retention strategies, and explore what a best firm to work for looks like post-pandemic.

Eight (8) Credit hours - This is a four-week program of two hours each week of live Zoom meetings with our advisors and your industry peers. Attendees will get pre-release access to the 2021 Best Firm Industry Benchmarking Report and will get exclusive access to a special report benchmarking their firm’s 2021 data.

The CEO Roundtable 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 Executive Consultant, Dan Williams 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 and be prepared to think creatively as to what a best firm to work for looks like in the future.
