Winning Business

Conventional notions of design agency ‘sales’ and ‘selling’ are changing. Many of the old methods have become ineffective and discredited. This workshop explores the most up to date and effective ways to grow your business, from positioning and messaging to business development strategy and tactics.

  • Setting out your stall – getting the right positioning and messaging.
  • Your claims to fame – looking at your clients and case studies with new eyes.
  • Structuring your new business and client development effort – increased focus, meaningful output not just activity.
  • Keep in touch strategy – cherishing the people you know, your biggest asset.
  • Business development messages and routes to market – evaluating different types of activity.
  • Developing action plans that are realistic and achievable.

FOR: Agency Owners, Account Directors, Client Facing Designers and those involved with business development in design & creative businesses.

Cost:

  • Design Skillnet, IDI and ICAD Members: €195
