The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today (3 September) announced that its flagship professional event aimed at small architectural practices, Guerrilla Tactics, sponsored by Kiwa BDA is to return for its twelfth year on 10-11 November 2015 with the theme ‘Client Perspectives’.

Under the joint Creative Directorship of Esther Everett and Eleanor Fawcett, heads of the Design and Physical Regeneration team at the London Legacy Development Corporation, this two-day conference held at the RIBA in London will deliver a package of advice and guidance that develops essential business skills for both growing practices and those cementing their existing market position and client base.

Esther Everett and Eleanor Fawcett said:

“We’re thrilled to launch such a varied but focussed programme of talks and sessions for this year’s Guerrilla Tactics. We feel that ‘Client Perspectives’ will offer real and current insight into the client’s perspective on projects and the profession.”

With presentations from industry leaders, the event will include a ‘Live Pitch’ session and a Mentoring Speed Dating event, introducing delegates to a high-profile range of mentors including leading clients and contractors. Day two will comprise of a full day of 30 CPD seminars covering all ten RIBA Core Curriculum topics, with sessions from expert practitioners across a range of issues.
