Supplier & Trade Relations

As creative professionals, we may have great ideas, but we are going to need a team of experts to turn those ideas into reality. None of us can do this challenging, rewarding work alone. At Business of Design™ our mission is to liberate your talent, by providing you with the systems, strategies and protocols that will allow you to do your best work.
This BOD™ category of online design courses teaches you, the hard-working interior design or decorating professional, how to handle project management fees and procurement fees. Specific strategies and protocols for talking to your clients about fees and discounts and mark-ups. You’ll also learn how to prepare a worksheet, which will eliminate costly mistakes and a quote request form that allows your trades and suppliers to do their best work with your support. This category also contains the Resource Guide to Excellence, the contract Kimberley Seldon uses with her trades and suppliers. It’s a concise document that provides clear boundaries to trades, thus producing high performance teams that work in harmony.
