DAPS Live Course 2022
A program tailored specifically for you as an architect and proven to give you the certainty that all practice leaders want.
Our newly updated course will provide you with a holistic understanding of business. Over eight weeks, you will learn the key concepts across foundational areas of business, including finance, sales and marketing, vision, structure, leadership and management.
You will learn the material in an intimate group setting over eight, live 90-minute sessions led by our Archibiz Chief Mentor, Ray Brown. This unique learning environment provides you with the opportunity to connect and learn with and from other architects, and we've been told it's one of the best aspects of the entire program.
Our program is suitable for leadership teams. If you have more than one director or leader at your practice, you can enroll as a practice to get the full benefits of the course.
This is an incredibly high-value opportunity that has transformed the lives and practices of more than 100 architecture practice leaders, and we're confident it can do the same for you.
The course, designed specifically for architecture practice leaders, will kick off on Thursday, March 31st and last through May 19th. The sessions will run 10:00 a.m -11:30 a.m. AEDT each Thursday.
There are only 10 spots available in the program. This is the only time we plan on opening up enrolment into the course in 2022, so we expect space to fill up quickly.
When you sign on for the DAPS Course you'll receive the following:
8 weekly x 90 minutes webinar sessions using the Zoom video platform (these will be available as recordings for you to access on an ongoing basis).
Intimate group learning environment with up to 10 other architects

The course costs AUD$4,900+GST
Yes, you may select to pay for the course in three, monthly instalments of AUD$1,700+GST. The first payment is deducted from your account upon registration. The next two instalments are deducted at 30 days and 60 days after your initial payment.
No. Once you sign up, you have Ongoing Access to the DAPS Live Course. This is the hub where you will find everything you need to create a sustainable and profitable practice. We get that there’s a lot to take in and that you’re going to want to come back and recap on various topics as issues arise in your practice, simply login and it’s all there to access.
Only one person in the practice has to pay. You and your team will then get full access to the course. If you have a fellow Director or Studio Manager, then we encourage you to do it together.
We offer a 30 day, 100% money back guarantee on the course. If you decide you don’t like it or it’s not for you, then as long as you contact us before Module 5 is launched then we will happily refund 100% of your money, no questions asked. We don’t want any unhappy clients.
This is not a ‘time heavy’ course. We will introduce and explain key concepts to you so that you can evaluate these in the context of your own practice. Is this concept relevant to me? Is it relevant to me now? Do I want to make changes in my practice now or in the future? Sometimes these thoughts are best reflected upon over a glass of wine or a quiet dinner with your business partners. Business can be fun!
Yes, we have had people from practices in multiple countries complete our DAPS course. The materials are specifically designed to be applicable for all architectural practices, regardless of where you're located.
Every session is recorded and made available so you can watch the replay a short period later. This is helpful should you wish to recap on any of the material at a later date or share with others in your practice.
We understand that it can feel overwhelming to add one more place to check for information, or that you may be hesitant to share your story with strangers. But we highly encourage you to join for the extra support, and to get answers to your questions in real time.
