Mark Powles Managing Director, RRA Architects
It takes a minimum of seven years of study to qualify as an architect, none of this includes how to run a business. Being on LEAD gave me a toolkit to use in both day to day management and business planning strategy. I would thoroughly recommend it to any SME director or senior management.
Established in 1986, RRA Architects is recognised for its work in architecture, heritage, conservation, design and strategic thinking. Today the practice has absorbed Garland Cornelius Architects, to form a combined studio of architects and designers in London, Hereford and Cheltenham.
