Event Details

 BD Live! 


Watch business development experts interview a real client in real time. Featuring our real client, Kathy Inouye from The Kobayashi Group and facilitated by Frank Lippert, SMPS National Past-President.

For old pros and newcomers alike, this workshop will demonstrate the power of effective business development for professional service firms.


  • Participants will watch and learn from business development professionals as they demonstrate a variety of proficiency levels in creating visibility and winning work for their firms.
  • During live interviews with representatives from four of our member firms, these experts will demonstrate BD basics like networking and effective listening along with more sophisticated tactics like creating (and communicating) a unique value proposition.


More than just a presentation or panel discussion, this workshop offers attendees the opportunity to observe effective business development - LIVE!

SMPS Hawaii Chapter

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) was created in 1973 by a small group of professional services firm leaders who recognized the need to sharpen skills, pool resources, and work together to create business opportunities.  The mission of SMPS is to advocate for, educate, and connect leaders in the building industry.  Today, SMPS represents a dynamic network of 6,900+ marketing and business development professionals from architectural, engineering, planning, interior design, construction, and specialty consulting firms located throughout the United States and Canada.  The society and its 55 chapters benefit from the support of 3,250 design and building firms, encompassing 80% of the Engineering News Record Top 500 Design Firms and Top 400 Contractors.
SMPS offers many benefits and services for its members such as a national marketing and management conference, national seminars and workshops, awards programs, publications, and educational resources to highlight the latest trends and best practices in marketing and business development in the design and construction industries.
