New Location! Holiday Club, 4000 N. Sheridan Road (at Irving and right next to Red Line "Sheridan" stop).

Easy access from Lake Shore Drive.

No Cubs game that day either!cool

The topic will be: PRICING. How do YOU Price out your work? (Hourly, Fixed Rate?)

How do you determine a client's true budgetary needs for any given project?


Everyone is encouraged to discuss past and current projects (no client names, please!). We've all missed out on some opportunities and this is your chance to improve your position on your bids as well as gain a greater understanding of what clients are looking for.

This will be casual, with sharing of ideas and discussing successful (and not-so-successful) pitching techniques.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

    I was really impressed by how organized it was and the willingness for the organizer to get things back on track when people (like myself) rambled and got off topic. :)

    Another excellent exchange of ideas. Two big takeaways: 1. Define what you WILL deliver for any given price as well as what you will NOT. This helps keep client expectations in line with the proposal. 2. If a client budget seems unrealistically low, simply scale back what can be delivered for that amount; over time, it often increases in scope, cost and becomes more reasonable all around.
