Finance 101

November 4, 2020 | 8:45am - 10:00am

Understanding basic financial principles is essential for current and aspiring A/E/C leaders. It’s a critical part of doing business, especially when it comes to analyzing and improving your firm’s bottom line. A firm grasp on these concepts and how they relate will help you communicate effectively with other leaders—and climb the success ladder.

Fortunately, the finance side of our industry doesn’t have to be a dry and complicated mystery. Packed with valuable information and case study examples, this workshop will equip you with the tools to help make smarter marketing and business development decisions, impact your firm’s profitability, and take your seat at the leadership table.

Chris D. Rickman, FSMPS, CPSM 

Owner & CEO (Chief Elevation Officer)
Apex Business Strategies

 

Chris has a passion for helping A/E/C firms reach peak potential. After working for a structural engineering firm for more than 25 years, that passion led him to launch Apex in 2019. He started in the A/E/C industry as a junior CAD technician and worked his way up into the role of executive vice president and chief operations officer. His business acumen comes from his many firm operational roles including marketing and business development, financial oversight, business operations, and overseeing IT needs. Chris became a Fellow of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) in 2013. He has served many leadership roles in the Society locally, regionally, and nationally, including president of SMPS Oklahoma in 2006–2007 and president of the Society’s board of directors in 2018-2019. He enjoys spending time outdoors and watching Oklahoma Sooner sports.
