Business of Design Educational Series

Proven techniques to transform your business, by successful design entrepreneur Kimberley Seldon

Launch Projects Like a Boss

Friday, April 5
9am – 12pm
High Point Theatre, in the Transportation Terminal

After 25 years in business and through coaching hundreds of designers, Kimberley Seldon is convinced, there’s no way to finish a project successfully if you don’t start strong. In step-by-step fashion, Kimberley will share her project launch process for all projects (large and small). Plus, you’ll learn what should always be in your contract (hint: it’s not what they taught you at design school!). If you’re not yet familiar with Business of Design’s 15 Step Project Management Strategy, this three hour course is a fast-track to immediate results. For those who are familiar with BOD’s tried-and-true methods, but haven’t yet implemented or need a career and confidence boost, you will also be able to use this session to solve current business challenges and reignite your passion and commitment. A must-attend session.

This intensive training course is for the highly motivated design professional who is worn out from haggling over fees, working for peanuts, running from crisis to crisis and defending their hard-won expertise. Start each project with precision and move forward on a linear path that leads to success. It’s time to take your business to the next level. Always dynamic and straight-to-the-point, Kimberley answers all and shares her expertise—witty, knowledgeable and honest!
