It could go either way.  The Open Group's Master Certified Architect designation for Solution Architects (I am one) requires both conceptual design and implementation experience.

This would depend on the context of the meeting. Solutions architects are usually employed in pre-sales roles, helping to design technical solutions for customers, but they may also serve in post-sales positions, helping to implement the solutions.

It does depend on the context of the meeting, and where they were employed. An external solutions architect would likely be pre sales, while internal would be about designing solutions.
