AUCKLAND DA Workshop: Presenting for Designers with Mark Easterbrook
October 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Even the best creative work can fall at the final hurdle — the client presentation. Telling the story of your work in a compelling way and equipping your client with reasons to say yes are vital skills for anyone in the design industry. Presenting the work well helps open the door to doing the work you want to do.
