People, Planet & Profit: The Triple Bottom Line

5 October 2019

Join the ACA at The Business of Architecture and Design conference in Sydney on Monday, 11 November for a special panel discussion, People, Planet and Profit – What are you doing in your practice to measure the triple bottom line?

The emphasis on fees and negotiations have been dominating architectural practices of all sizes in recent decades. But what does the financial imperative that drives your practice mean to you, what does it mean for your business and more importantly what does it mean to your clients – the ones you serve?

How are practices contributing to big picture issues, such as sustainability and the environment, and the future of the profession as a whole? What values do you prioritise to sustain your business?

Hear from a panel of experts who will dissect, explore, challenge and share some of their strategies on impacting change in our communities while making that dollar count for their practice. Speakers will include Practice Management and HR Consultant Fiona Martin; Partner of Kennedy Associates Architects and former National ACA President Steve Kennedy; Founder of Bijl Architecture and Adjunct Professor at UTS Melonie Bayl-Smith; ClarkeHopkinsClarke Managing Partner Robert Goodliffe; and ACA – Vic/Tas President and Founding Director of FPPV Architecture Paul Viney.


The People, Planet and Profit seminar is part of the inaugural Business of Architecture and Design conference, which will explore the theme of Disruption and the Future. The one-day conference on Monday 11 November leads into the Sydney Architecture Festival and has been designed to cover recent changes that are taking place within the built environment – changes in technology, new business models and where investment is being made now and into the future.
