Over the past 5 years, Ayers Saint Gross has crossed over a mountain range of change—including onboarding a new president and leadership team, re-organizing the practice around integrated delivery of services, and converting to a 100% ESOP ownership structure.

In this talk, Luanne will share strategies, tactics, and lessons learned from Ayers Saint Gross' business and culture change journey.
