WestEast University | Foresight

IMG_7043.JPG

WestEast University is an ongoing professional employee development series that aims to expand knowledge and perception through engaging conversations from industry professionals and outside speakers.

8 March 2019

On Friday, WestEast University presented Greg Turner AIA, LEED AP, President and founder of Turner Duran Architects in Houston, Texas who shared his knowledge on “Foresight”. Foresight emphasizes systemic and transformational change as opposed to focusing on incremental change based on existing trends and conditions. Our discussion focused on the anticipation of change, encouraging communication and involvement in the industry and finally defining preferred, desired, and acquired goals.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to Greg for presenting to us and expanding our viewpoint as we apply these concepts to not only the architecture and engineering industry but also towards everyday life.
