      • Consulting + Costing + Quoting for Small Business | online

        You may be an amazingly talented stylist but are you being suitably rewarded for your talent? Let us show you how to be the master of your business, take control & improve your bottom line - not to mention a great opportunity to network with like minded people in your industry.

        Offering a half hour recorded online session, followed by a half hour F2F Q&A session with one of our floral industry expert educators, this hour long workshop is invaluable for anyone either entering or already working in the Wedding &/or Event styling industries & wishing to learn/gain confidence/refresh/up-skill their Consulting + Costing + Quoting knowledge.

        WHAT WILL I LEARN? Some of the most important lessons required for making sure you are working smarter, not harder. Hands up if you find yourself working extremely hard on jobs to give your clients the best events ever only to find at the end you've actually made little or no money - or worse still - that, because you just added a little extra here and there to make it really special, the job/s actually cost you money?!

        We will discuss what we believe are the 5 most important 'how-tos' in a small service business and will discuss in detail:

        1. arrange and conduct the first meeting with your client;
        2. be personable & friendly while keeping your relationship on a professional level;
        3. correctly calculate the costing of your clients requirements (from a single bouquet to a full blown major event);
        4. prepare a professional quote for your client;
        5. how & when to follow up on the quote to close the deal.

        We'll also share other important topics such as:

        • overheads
        • Terms & Conditions
        • hiring
        • insurances
        • staffing
        • liaising with Venue & Event Managers
        • logistics of site visits + bumping in & out
