When I just began as an Interior Designer Professional here in
Nigeria, I had so many questions. I wasn’t sure who to ask and how to
even phrase my questions?
I wondered if I would make it in the industry. I wondered if I should
work at an existing firm? I wondered if I should start my own
How to get clients, how to present myself so that I would be taken as
a professional and of course I wondered if there was money to be
made…and if there was, would I make it? How do I brand myself? My
firm? Should I partner with like-minded people? I could go on and on…
At every step in my profession – I believe what has been key is
learning from others…I’ve always dreamt of having avenues such as The
Pan-Africa Interior Design Virtual Summit that gives me the
opportunity to learn from other successful professionals so I wouldn’t
have to make painful and expensive mistakes.
I’ve listed below 4 (of many) key things you’ll learn from the Summit:
- How to pick a Niche in Interior Design – Have you heard that phrase
“the riches are in the Niches?” Well it’s true. Picking a Niche can
sometimes be tricky. You want to pick a Niche that is going to be
enjoyable and profitable. And during the summit we have speakers that
will share their secrets on how they selected their riches, and 3
great strategies for picking and aligning into a successful Niche.
- How to land a great job in Interior Design – If you’re just starting
out in Interior design, been working for a while or transitioning from
one industry into the interior design industry then you know how
challenging it can be. Great news! We have a speaker that will tell
you the exact steps they took when they transitioned, and 2 things you
can do today to help you get that first job in the right interior
design field today.
- What to know to start your Interior Design business – If you’re
someone who’s not quite interested in a job, maybe you’ve been working
for a while, and now you just want to start a business, then you’re
going to enjoy the session we have where the professionals share the
things you need to do to ensure that you have a sound business – how
to attract clients etc.
- Strategies for Growth – Have you been an Interior Design for 1, 5
of even 10 years? Its amazing the wealth of knowledge some of our
speakers have brought on board! From business development strategies
to partnership and collaboration for growth.
I keep saying this and I mean it…its super exciting to be a host at
the summit, but more exciting for me is what I’m learning and how I
totally can’t wait to implement them into my business!
Now you see why I’m so excited about this summit.
There’s truly no stopping us* now!!!
