Pro-Bono Work as a Business Development Strategy with Cameron Sinclair, Robert Ivy, Randy Deutsch and Jeff Echols

Enoch SearsMar 3, 2015

Today's show is different than most – I'm reaching into the Business of Architecture vault and pulling out a few interviews that I've never broadcast before.

Today you'll hear from AIA CEO Robert Ivy, University of Illinois professor, BIM expert and Twitter maven Randy Deutsch, Architecture for Humanity co-founder Cameron Sinclair, and architect and social media expert Jeff Echols.

These interviews were recorded live, in person at the AIA convention in 2013 in Denver Colorado. There is a bit of background noise but hopefully it isn't too distracting and doesn't take away from the great content of these interviews.

First we'll hear from AIA CEO Robert Ivy on the tools that the AIA offers small firm practitioners, then Randy Deutsch is going to tell us about his experience using social media, Twitter in particular. Cameron Sinclair will speak on using pro-bono work as a business development strategy and Jeff Echols will round it out by talking about social media.

In today's episode you'll discover:

  • Wise words on pro-bono work from Architecture For Humanity co-founder Cameron Sinclair
  • AIA resources that benefit small firm architects (and sole practitioners)
  • Social media tips from two AEC social media gurus
