Growing Your Business

Most interior designers begin in a whirl of creativity, energy and optimism. In an average working week, they will act as designer, specifier, accountant, project manager, client liaison, IT support, office dogsbody and tea-lady. There is no time to spare for marketing the business or finding new clients. Workflows are impossible to manage, and famine follows feast in a never-ending cycle that can be difficult to break.

Cutting Through The Greenwash

As awareness of the crisis facing our planet grows, more and more interior suppliers are making environmentally friendly claims for their products to increase their sales; but working out who to believe can be a minefield for designers. Greenwash, defined as behaviour or activities that mislead people into believing that a company is doing more to protect the environment than it actually is, is rife. How can interior designers cut through the greenwash to be sure that they are sourcing as sustainably as possible? What information is available to designers who want to understand the origins and impact of what they are specifying, and what are the questions all designers need to be asking their supply chains to get to the truth of sustainable sourcing? We're joined by Nicola Keenan from Boxx Creative, Chloe Bullock from Materialise Interiors and Stefan Dodds from Dodds & Shute to find out. This episode was first broadcast as a panel discussion as part of the Decorex Virtual 2020 Agenda programme. ...

Building Private Client Relationships

We're in Manchester to explore the chemistry between interior designers and private residential clients. It can be hugely satisfying and fun to work on private residential projects. Indeed, interior designers can have a massively positive impact on the lives of clients and their families. All designers dream of working for delighted, grateful, non-quibbling, fee-paying, private clients, but, in reality, how easy is this to achieve? And, what can you do to avoid some of the possible pitfalls? Fiona Watkins of Fiona Watkins Design joins co-host Susie Rumbold, Head of Tessuto Interiors and a Past President of the British Institute of Interior Design, to share their experiences and offer practical advice. We also take the temperature of business in the North with the help of Natalie Holden from NH Interiors and Melinda Kiss of Keyhole Interiors. Natalie and Melinda are the founders of Concept North, the region's fast-growing community for designers.

This episode is recorded in the Havwoods Manchester Showroom, located in Deansgate, the Design Quarter of the city. The Interior Design Business is a Wildwood and Alfi Media production. ...
