What’s Your Design Worth?
November 7, 2013 11:15 AM - Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 104CD
So you’re seeking to prove your value. Somewhere, over the last few months you’ve run into professional roadblocks. Someone has questioned your expertise, challenged your process, denied you compensation, closed the door to a promotion, told you that your baby was ugly. Designers intrinsically know that their talents and abilities generate significant value for their clients and for end-users. But how do we prove it? And how do we frame that value, and the expert status we’ve achieved to wield it, so that our clients can better understand?
