DENVER, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For interior design professionals who want to learn critical business skills that add profits and passion to their business, Design Success University is offering the 2014 Interior Design Summit August 1-3 in Denver.
"Most designers operate from a place of passion. They went to design school because they love design," said Gail Doby, Design Success University's Chief Vision Officer." They therefore tend to spend too much time on the wrong things and end up feeling overwhelmed, even though they're not earning what they want to. The biggest reason behind this is that they don't have the clarity or business knowledge they need to set goals and then systematically achieve them."
That's why the Interior Design Summit focuses on giving designers the skills and knowledge they need to operate their businesses as Chief Executive Officers AND interior design professionals. With a focus on better managing time, clients, and business details, the Summit provides business owners with exactly what they need to become ultra-efficient and more profitable.
Featured speakers include Joni Vanderslice of J Banks Design Group, Nancy Greystone of Communicating with Clarity, Lisa Ferguson of Decor Mentor, Lance Haeberle of Studio Webware, Yasmine Bijan, and Drue Lawlor.
Designers who attend the 2014 Interior Design Summit can expect to learn how to:
- Qualify prospects so they work ONLY with clients they love
- Delegate and outsource effectively so the business hums along without micromanagement OR dropped balls (and with MORE design-centered activities)
- Identify the biggest roadblocks in their business and enlist their team's help to get past them for good
- Develop "decision confidence" so they can take decisive action to move their business forward
- Take everything they learn during the 3-day event and apply it to their business
- And so much more
Plus, the 3-day event includes time for networking and masterminding so attendees can build a strong network of likeminded professionals.
"This inspirational and strategy-filled event will dramatically increase your confidence and clarity," Gail said. "When you do, you earn significantly more money and enjoy your business more than ever. If you're ready to do more of what you love – design – and get the business skills you need to create a rock-solid, steadily-growing bottom line, the Interior Design Summit is the event of the year!"
