Ellen Bensky, CEO
Turner Fleischer Architects
At KA Connect 2018, Ellen Bensky shared how learning is a strategic priority at Turner Fleischer Architects. This year Ellen will return to discuss the hidden benefits of teaching. Creating teaching opportunities inside and outside of the firm is one of Turner Fleischer’s primary retention and engagement strategies. Staff at all levels are supported in teaching at colleges and universities, the internal TF Academy, client education workshops, and peer-to-peer advancements in technology. In this talk, Ellen will share how teaching has become a core tenet of the practice.
