Berkeley, California (PRWEB) July 06, 2016
Berkeley, California-based architecture firm Mikiten Architecture recently won the Architect Business Transformation Contest sponsored by the Architect Marketing Institute.
Mikiten Architecture was selected to receive this award from among 5 international finalists by a peer group of licensed architects and designers at the Architect Business Development Summit that was held in New York City on April 7 and 8, 2016.
After 25 years in the profession of architecture, Mikiten Architecture principal Erick Mikiten, AIA had inconsistent clientele, and wasn't earning what he felt his experience and value merited.
However, only months after learning and implementing some surprisingly effective new business strategies, he has found a new level of success and satisfaction.
"I have [new] project opportunities that are happening...I feel like I'm more in control," states Mikiten.
"My frustration is gone and I'm more organized and so I'm more confident, and other people are more confident in me. I feel like I'm the captain of my ship, and I haven't felt like this since I first started my firm. This is a great thing!"
Mikiten Architecture was selected as the winner of the Architect Business Transformation contest based on a video entry that Mikiten created outlining his diligence in implementing the ethical marketing strategies taught by the Architect Marketing Institute.
In addition, Erick Mikiten is actively engaging in furthering the profession of architecture and its impact on the built environment by serving on California's Building Standard Commission and by researching and publishing industry-leading best practices in Universal Design.
As winner of the Architect Business Transformation Contest, Erick Mikiten was awarded a trip to New Zealand to study personally with the world's leading architect marketing coach Richard Petrie.
