Breakout speaker – The Engineering Career Coach, Anthony Fasano – Inspiring the next generation of engineers and teaching them how to maximize their potential.
Zweig Group is thrilled to have Anthony Fasano, P.E., The Engineering Career Coach, as a breakout speaker at our 2017 Hot Firm & AEC Industry Awards Conference.
Fasano received a B.S. and a M.S. in Civil Engineering from Lafayette College and Columbia University respectively and his executive coaching certificate from the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching. Fasano founded The Engineering Career Coach, one of the leading professional development companies for engineers. The company website contains content for engineers that has been ranked the best in the world including a blog, two engineering podcasts that have been downloaded over 2 million times and their newest venture, Engineering Career TV.
As a young engineer, Fasano realized that his success was related largely to the development of his non-technical skills. Since that time, he has decided to transition his career from designing to inspiring engineers in their soft skill development through coaching, speaking and training.
Anthony has written a bestselling book entitled Engineer Your Own Success which is published by IEEE-Wiley, he has spoken to thousands of engineers across the United States, and has delivered a TEDx talk on inspiring the next generation of engineers. Fasano has also co-authored a series of children’s books with his 10-year-old daughter entitled Purpee the Purple Dragon. They have delivered hundreds of the books to pediatric cancer centers around the United States.

Dr. Pehlivan is a geotechnical engineer specializing in earthquake engineering. She is currently working as a geotechnical engineer with CH2M in Seattle, WA. Dr. Pehlivan specializes in the analysis of seismic site response, soil-foundation-structure interaction, probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA), and the seismic design of foundation of structures. She was inspired to build more resilient communities and reduce the risk associated with the earthquakes following the 1999 Kocaeli Earthquake that hit Turkey.
Upon completing her undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering, she continued her graduate studies specializing in geotechnical earthquake engineering. She obtained her doctorate from The University of Texas at Austin in 2013 and started working as a consulting engineer in New York City, where she had opportunity to work on seismic design of projects in the US, Mexico, and Canada. During this time she also served as an Adjunct Professor at Manhattan College where she developed and taught seismic portion of a graduate course for practicing engineers on fundamentals of foundation design.
