The GUIDE- Business and Career Development Tools is a Two (2) day event focused on the design professionals that make the projects happen and the service providers that work behind the scenes.
GUIDE for Business is a platform for established, as well as aspiring design professionals (Interior Designers, Interior Architects etc) to network with other service providers (Quantity Surveyors, Color Consultants and Engineers etc) and educate themselves on the development tools they need for their careers and businesses.
The theme of this year’s GUIDE- Business and Career Development Tools is ‘FREEDOM TO DESIGN’.
Most design professionals entered into the industry because of their
passion to design but instead they are weighed down and clogged with other
things that take their time and energy away from being creative. Our focus this
year is finding ways to free your mind to do more creative projects and giving
you the freedom to work from anywhere. Our drive is your physical location and
responsibilities as a business owner and manger should not limit your
creativity. ‘FREEDOM OF MIND AND PLACE’
