“Designers, Contractors, and Architects: Creating Relationships and Partnerships for Referrals and Business Success “

Is the relationship between a contractor, architect and interior designer one of competition or cohesion? Christopher Grubb explains how today’s industry professionals should build mutually beneficial long term relationships in order to implement an unforgettable design experience for the client. Having successfully cultivated relationships with contractors for over 25 years, Grubb explains how these solid working relationships provide many benefits to the overall project, often saving time, hassle, money, and even the contractor’s reputation. Attendees will learn how interior designers, architects, and contractors can work together to create seamless experiences for clients, as well as increased success for their individual businesses.
