Whether you work at a marketing agency or do freelance work on the side, we all want to help good clients. But as horror-story sites like “Clients from Hell” illustrate, it’s a tough world out there for creative professionals. Karl Sakas will share how to find the right clients, how to get clients to pay you for your time, and how to say “no” to clients without burning bridges. The session includes a hands-on Q&A with Karl to answer your real-life questions about how to handle difficult client situations.
Join us on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, for our Homegrown on Make the Logo Bigger: How to Have Fewer Client Service Problems with Karl Sakas of Agency Firebox.
