Glug London presents - Design Is Business (Talks Tickets)

  • Jul 12, 2012 · 6:00 PM

Hello Gluggers,

It's time to announce the full details of our next Glug entitled "Design is Business" at Cargo on July 12th 2012 - and BOY do we have a speaker lineup for this one! It could sell out in days...

As always for the talks part of the event seated tickets are limited to 200 only - so please snap them up here quick. The last two events have both sold out and this ones pretty special!



THEME - 'Design is Business'

- Why do you do what you do?

- How do you run a successful design practice?

- How do you get the work?

- What made you do it?

- What's your opinion of where we are today?

Let's talk about wins, fails, how you did it, took the leap, grew the agency, worried yourself to shreds when it's been tight on work, what makes a bad client, who's been a good clients, what's a process, how do we make it more fun, what's the greatest piece of work you've been part of? What's next for us all?

We hope this Glug will inspire and illuminate.

    Great talks on the whole, however the music was far too loud after the talks to do any proper networking. Couldn't hear my own voice!
