New architecture podcast launched to help architects grow business

A chartered architectural technologist has launched Architecture Business Club, a podcast for architectural professionals to help them grow their businesses.

Jon Clayton’s main area of expertise is designing home extensions but as the owner of his own architecture practice he has always had an interest in the business side of architecture.

He says: “When you go to college or university to study architecture, you learn how to design buildings, but they don’t teach you all the skills you need to run and grow an architecture business.”

As a chartered architectural technologist, Jon has found that most of the resources to help architecture practices were aimed squarely at Architects which proved quite frustrating for him.

“I want to ensure my podcast is an inclusive place for all architecture practice owners, whatever their professional title, as there is so much we can learn from each other,” he adds.

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

Jon says he didn’t realise how much work there is involved in making a podcast: “It’s a lot of work but it’s been a really fun experience, especially learning how to host an interview,” he admits. “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 Clayton’s Architecture Business Club launches on 16 November on most podcast platforms including Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts and Amazon.
