Helen, along with Barbara Horton, FIALD, CLD, of HLB Lighting Design Inc. and David Becker, Assoc. IALD, CLD, of David Becker Design, will speak about managing the growth or contraction of their lighting design businesses. Their presentation will highlight each firm’s growth process and the levers that propelled the expansion or contraction. Each of their stories differs from both a personal and business point of view. Managing Growth will run from 1:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. during the forum.

Jon will be participating in Professional Tools Track: Architect, Engineer, BIM: Where the Lighting Designer Fits In on Friday, October 13, 2017 from 1:40 p.m. to 3:10 p.m.

They will also debate the general pros and cons of BIM programs for lighting designers from the perspectives of small and large lighting design firms as well as a large architect/engineering firm.
