James L. Salmon of Collaborative Construction begins each 1 hour IPD Round Table discussion with a short Webinar presentation on an IPD topic of interest.  Hosts and attendees are then free to ask questions, and James typically remains on the line for another 30 to 45 minutes.  Following the online discussion the Webinar ends and local hosts have the opportunity to continue the conversation with local attendees in a collaborative setting.  Each host formlates a series of questions designed to prompt further discussion at the local level.  Hosts and participants may, from time to time, be invited to make presentations of their own.

Invitations to participate in the Second IPD Round Table Series are being extended to firms, organizations and individuals located around the world and we anticipate a interesting and informative conversation among IPD, BIM, VDC and Lean process advocates around the GLOBE.  Questions and answers will come from the from around the world.  All participants - hosts and attendees alike - will benefit from accessing a diverse knowledge base and leveraging that knowledge every month.

  • Recognition in IPD Round Table Updates published monthly on this blog
  • Exposure on the Collaborative Construction Blog
  • Links on Collaborative Construction's Affiliates' Websites
  • Collaborative Construction Newsletter Listing Monthly
  • Discussions in 20+ targeted LinkedIn Groups online
  • Recognition in local market as an IPD, BIM, VDC and Lean Leader
  • Education of Attendees Invited by Host Entity Re IPD, BIM, VDC and Lean Processes
  • Monthly Marketing Opportunities Among Select Clients & Collaborative Partners
Host firms will be encouraged to bring cross disciplinary teams to the IPD Round Table events each month and should view IPD Round Table events as the remarkable marketing opportunities they are.  Each presentation will trigger robust debate - first online and then locally - with the hosted conversation continuing long after the Webinar ends.  Firms interested in positioning themselves as IPD leaders in their market will be well served by hosting IPD Round Table events.

IPD Round Table summaries will be distributed monthly through the Collaborative Construction newsletter, posted on the Collaborative Construction Blog, discussed on LinkedIn, mentioned on Twitter and linked on a myriad of affiliated websites.  As Collaborative Construction's network of contacts and affiliated websites expands, so will the marketing power of an IPD Round Table Host's sponsorship of IPD Round Table events.


Collaborative Construction will be seeking commitments from Hosts throughout the United States and abroad.  Potential hosts will also be contacted in Canada, South America, Europe, the Middle East, New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Rim. Don't be left on the sideline!  Sign up to host an IPD Round Table discussion in your community today. 

This GLOBAL flier will be followed by a targeted invitation directed at key firms Collaborative Construction perceives as emerging IPD leaders in their communities around the globe.  No more than 12 firms will be allowed to Host IPD Round Table events during a single Webinar.  We have found that the quality and intimacy of the conversation deteriorates significantly when there are more than 8 to 12 active participants in a Webinar. There will be no limit on the number of individuals who can participate.  We will schedule as many IPD Round Table Webinars as demand supports.

Hosts should also consider partnering with potential integrated team mates as Co-Hosts.  If the $600.00 annual fee is too burdensome for a single entity a Co-Host could split that cost and two entities could enjoy GLOBAL exposure as IPD advocates in a market for $300 each per year.   

As demand grows, we will add additional IPD Round Table dates to the calendar.  Pricing will be re-visted next year as well, but Charter Hosts will be offered substantial discounts to renew their sponsorships. Finally, individual remote participants will be always be able to attend virtually for FREE.


This initial flier is being posted on the Collaborative Construction Blog and will sent to recipients of Collaborative Construction's April Newsletter.  A follow on invitation will be extended to a select group of firms around the world, but hosting opportunities will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.  Since hosts will be selected on a first come first serve basis and geographic overlap between hosts will be discouraged, time is of the essence.
