The first meeting with a client is incredibly important, for many reasons. Not only is it an opportunity to get to know them and discuss their project, it’s your chance to let them know you mean business. The only way to do this (and stand out from the pack) is to explain to them, and sell them, on your process.

This meeting is your chance to nail the scope. A Scope of Work is the foundation of everything we do as designers, from the first meeting with the client through to completion of the project. It’s a valuable tool for all parties involved, including the client, your design team and the trades involved.

In this class, you will learn:

  • How to “qualify” new leads to make sure they are the right client for you
  • How to sell the Initial Consultation to your clients
  • What you need to do to be properly prepared for that meeting
  • What you need to cover off in that meeting
  • How to create a Rock-Solid Scope of Work
  • Tips to convert more Initial Consultations into full scope projects

Do you find that you’re attracting the same sort of micro-managing clients time and time again? Are you terrified of growing your team for fear of being discovered as a fraud?

You are not alone! Most designers struggle to manage projects efficiently due to a lack of effective, consistent systems. In this class we will teach you how to create systems and will transform the way you view your business! Learn how to take charge of a project and set clear expectations.

  • Grow your business through effective delegation

In this class we will equip you with the skills, knowledge and templates to start to charge what you deserve to be earning, and set you up to run a successful and profitable business that brings you great joy!

Are you terrified of discussing money with a client?

Do you struggle to get your clients to nominate a budget?

Do you avoid talking about the project costs due to a fear of losing the job?

Have you ever lost the trust of a client because of a blow-outs in costs?

Most designers struggle to feel confident talking about anything other than the design outcomes, but experience has taught us that all clients care about how much the project will cost (even if they don’t tell you!).

We have the opportunity to win the trust of our clients from the outset by reassuring them that we are just as interested in managing the project finances as we are about the design.

Join this session to learn how to confidently and professionally estimate project costs, communicate these costs effectively to the clients and update them as variations occur.

In this class, you will learn how to:

  • Talk about money with confidence
  • Establish what the client feels comfortable spending, from the outset
  • Create a detailed preliminary budget outlining the likely costs associated with the project
  • Update this budget to manage the clients expectations
  • Utilise the budget to make specification more efficient
  • Keep abreast of variations to costs throughout the project
  • Win the trust and loyalty of your clients

Here we will answer your questions about how the new learnings might apply to you and your work situation. This is your chance to bring us real life scenarios that you may be struggling with and get on-the-spot coaching.

No question is too small (or big) in these sessions that are ALL ABOUT YOU.
