How do you say no to projects when you have too much on but you don’t want to let a client down? When should you take on an office space, or even set up as a business? How do you balance managing the administration of a project with ensuring there’s time to design? How do you price yourself fairly?
Join us for the inaugural discussion forum for freelance designers, giving you the opportunity to discuss the topics of most relevance to you with the people who understand most.
Date: Friday, 5th November 2021
Venue: Delivered remotely, via Zoom
About the Forums series
Following the success of the Agency Forum series, this new Forum sessions for Institute of Designers of Ireland – IDI and Design Skillnet members, bring together peers in small, hour-long sessions to set your own agenda and allow you the opportunity to discuss the topics most pressing to you. Held on a monthly basis, each forum will be hosted by a different lead, who will open the conversation with a particular topic of relevance to you and invite all participants to engage in discussion and shared problem-solving.
