Community Partner Webinar -AE Profitability-1200x800

For AE firms, profit is a multifaceted concept that extends beyond a simple year-end bank account balance. It’s about diving deep into the metrics and tools that unlock both project and firm profitability.

He’ll explain precisely how to define your breakeven multiplier and unveil your true cost rate, ensuring that financial clarity guides your decision-making. Additionally, discover how to set and analyze your firm’s maximum office billing potential, a critical step toward achieving your financial goals. By the end of this session, you’ll possess the knowledge and tools to drive profitability, both at the project level and across your entire firm.
