Consulting + Costing + Quoting for Small Business

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 2.5 hour 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.

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
- liasing with Venue & Event Managers
- logistics of site visits + bumping in & out
