Podcast launched by Chartered Architectural Technologist

A Chartered Architectural Technologist has launched a podcast for architectural professionals to help them grow their businesses.

Jon Clayton MCIAT's main area of expertise is designing home extensions but as the owner of his own CIAT Chartered Practice, he has always had a keen interest in the business side of things.

He said: "When you go to college or university to study architectural technology or architecture, you learn how to design buildings, but they don't teach you all the skills you need to run and grow an architectural business."

As a Chartered Architectural Technologist, Jon has found that most of the resources to help practices were aimed squarely at Architects which proved quite frustrating for him.

He said: "I want to ensure my podcast is an inclusive place for all practice owners, whatever their professional title, as there is so much we can learn from each other."

Each week Jon interviews inspiring people from the world of architecture and business, who share actionable tips to help you improve how you work, save time, or make more money. Jon also shares his own experiences running a business in occasional solo episodes.

And he's discovered there is a lot more to podcasting than just hitting the record button.

"I really had no idea how much goes into creating and launching a podcast. It's a lot of work but it's been a really fun experience, especially learning how to host an interview. I've had several exciting opportunities come my way since telling people about it so I can't wait to see what happens after the launch."

Jon's podcast, Architecture Business Club, launches on 16 November.

It is available on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon and more. You can subscribe to the show here.
