We kick-off our 2018 line-up with a special presentation by Emily Cohen
For experienced design firm principals, this session will reveal new insights and important (yet sometimes subtle) strategies and techniques that will improve how you present and negotiate your fees, including retainer relationships and value-based pricing. In this session, you will learn how to take current efforts to the next level; focus will be less on winning all projects, but winning the most qualified and profitable engagements. Learn ways to re-focus attention away from price as a key selection criteria and more towards expertise and value.
