Profitable Partnerships

Join us in welcoming Interior Design coach, Jody Seivert as she speaks about Profitable Partnerships! In a closed industry like interior design, wouldn’t you think we would embrace whatever it takes to have everyone involved work well together and help each other?

Does it happen that way for you?
Would you like it to?

This session is an opportunity for showroom and outside salespeople to connect and build meaningful business relationships with designers and with other showrooms…relationships that benefit everyone…and beyond just a networking event. Come to meet other dedicated professionals and leave with a strategy
for engagement and fulfillment.
