Emily Ruth Cohen: Building the Love into Your Design Business
September 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Love? In Business? Emily Cohen, top business consultant to the design stars says Yes! If your business is lovable, clients and employees will come running toward you with the best projects and great referrals – possibly even arms full of chocolates and roses. But, love isn’t a box full of beautifully packaged chocolates or fine wine. It’s not a fun poster or even a unique giveaway. It’s less tangible and something you give your clients and staff all year long. In this rousing and informative talk, you’ll learn why infusing love across all aspects of your business is important to your long-term success as well as the top 12 strategies Emily has curated for building and sharing the love.
Pick up a copy of Emily’s latest book, Brutally Honest, available at the talk.
