Hoodzpah Creative Business Talk + Workshop

AIGA DFW will be hosting the wonderful dynamic duo from Hoodzpah Design, Amy and Jennifer Hood. Join us as they talk business and discuss the in’s and out’s of starting your own freelance gig or design agency, growing a client base without selling out or starving, and dive into all things small business!

NOTE: This event is held at two separate locations. The keynote will be Dick Patrick Studios and the workshop will be at The Slate the following day. You MUST purchase a ticket for each. Your ticket for one will not gain entry to the other. Limited seats are available for both.

Fri. Sept 27th - The Keynote

How do you create goals for yourself and stay true to your vision while still allowing the twists, turns, and unexpected opportunities of life to delight you? Learn how to plan and grow your company without drinking your own kool-aid through a myriad of personal anecdotes of joy, failure, and every emotion in between.

Sat. Sept 28th - The Workshop (SOLD OUT)

In this 4-hour business workshop, they’ll get super transparent on how to quote, how to present your work, how to flat-price for what you're worth, and how to get those dream clients (showing you their top-secret quotes, project presentation decks, and more). They'll also review systems and procedures to running and optimizing your creative business through worksheets, take-home resources, a presentation, low-risk/low-cost tips & tricks, personal anecdotes, and 30–45 minutes of open Q&A at the end (so get your specific business questions ready!)
