      • Consulting + Costing + Quoting for Small Business

        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.

        This workshop is invaluable for anyone entering the Wedding & Event styling industry & - those already in the industry – wishing to refresh/up-skill their Consulting + Costing + Quoting knowledge.

        WHAT WILL I LEARN?
        In this 2.5hr session you’ll 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’ll begin with the first meeting with your client & how to be personable & friendly while keeping your relationshio on a professional level.
        Next - & most importantly – how to correctly calculate the costing of your clients requirements (from a single bouquet to a full blown major event).
        Next, how to prepare a professional quote for your client.
        Then finally how & when to follow up on the quote to close the deal.

        We’ll also discuss other important issues such as:

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