“The ABA’s Emerging Leaders Forum provided me with a wealth of knowledge on what it truly means to be a great “builder”. Great builders can have the technical know-how to manage projects safely, on time and under budget but they also have the soft skills relating to emotional intelligence, building relationships, and understanding themselves and their people to deliver a successful final product to an Owner.”
