[SKILLS EXCHANGE / 7 May] Client relationships: riding the roller coaster
Announcing the next IC-Hub skills exchange live meet-up event! It's on Friday 7 May at 2 pm (London) // 3 pm (Brussels) // 9 am (New York). It's for IC-Hubbers, but non-members are welcome to join us via the form below to access the link on the new members welcome page.
After positive feedback about our new format, we’ve decided to keep it! IC-Hub Skills Exchanges encourage exchange of independent consulting skills amongst our IC-Hubbers, with a facilitator who share their experience, ask questions, and moderate the discussion.
This time, we’re thrilled to have a new host, Jennifer Ruthe - Freelance Charity Copywriter.
One of the most important aspects of being an independent social impact professional is how you manage your clients. While for the most part, you’re on the same team, but every once in a while, you will have some difficult questions. Perhaps you have different opinions on how the project should be done or maybe they didn’t pay on time. How can you maintain a positive relationship while standing your ground? It's a bit different from managing relationships with colleagues.
What will we discuss at the skills exchange?
Jen will lead a discussion about the ups and downs of client relationships, including:
Setting the foundation for successful client relationships
Pushing back on fees and contracts
Lessons learned & best practices
Join the conversation on Friday 7 May at 2 pm (London) // 3 pm (Brussels) // 9 am (New York)!
