What’s it all about?
Talent is only one portion of the formula needed for success; working well with clients is another. Judging by recent posts on the DLF and feedback from members, one of the hardest things about being a freelancer or moving up the career ladder is knowing how to deal with things like:
pitching, taking a brief, the protocol of how to handle details like getting paid, follow-ups, relationships, and problems — like not getting paid.
So this session brings together two people who have worked extensively in industry and who can cover these topics and field a Q&A that should help members whether those just starting out or colleagues who are always open to new ideas about how to handle the eternal challenges of working with clients successfully.
Cost: Free for Siggraph members. $5 cover charge for refreshments for guests and non-members.
