Episode 001: Welcome to the AEC Leadership Today Podcast

Welcome to Episode 1 of AEC Leadership Today, a podcast for architecture, engineering, and construction industry leaders who want to stay relevant and effective in the modern workplace. In today’s episode, listen to our host Peter Atherton introduce himself and the podcast. 

A Podcast for the AEC Industry

Peter Atherton, former senior A/E firm executive, has transitioned to a new role in the AEC community as a leadership coach and consultant, and now he’s also a podcaster! Find out everything about Peter’s new podcast and get a sneak peek of the useful insights he wants to share. 


“I have had, and continue to have, so many fantastic conversations with incredible folks around the country and from both inside and outside the AEC Industry, so much so that I just needed to share.”

—Peter Atherton


  • The conversations in this podcast will range from strategic and succession planning to mergers and acquisitions to the latest trends in designing better employee and client experiences, and more!
  • Every person in the industry has a unique fit. Every one of us is specifically skilled and positioned to help solve critical issues facing our world and communities today.
  • Though this podcast is conversational, that doesn’t mean we aren’t afraid to tackle some uncomfortable topics. We will talk about the threats we face in terms of technology, innovation, and employee engagement. We’ll even cover areas we are often far too behind on such as equity, diversity, and inclusion.

“Our goal is to provide you with the benefits of a real dialogue—meaningful conversations that get into the issues that matter most—to provide you and your team with greater context and perspective you can act on and leverage moving forward.”

—Peter Atherton


We want to thank you for increasing our ability to collectively grow and impact the lives of others, whether they’re inside or outside our organizations. Remember, as you listen, it will help us out if you comment, subscribe, rate us, and share!
