Whether you’re managing your in-house designer or keeping your client happy, you need to know how to juggle the relationships your working life revolves around. Susie's session is adapted from a three- month long course at the Harvard Business School, and tailored to those working in design and advertising. Delivered in bite-sized chunks – so you can leave with practical skills and tools to put into use straight away – this is an immersive and hands-on workshop that covers all aspects of creative relationships.
Each step of the workshop is underpinned by researched best-practice relationship management, that's been proven to work time and again. But more than that, this is a day that's all about interaction and shared experiences. Role play gives you the chance to practice what you've learned, so you can leave feeling confident, and ready to manage any relationship work throws at you.
