ASMPNY is excited to announce the return of a favorite workshop, in collaboration with ThePhotoCloser: Creative Estimating and Negotiating with Frank Meo.
Want to learn the secrets to winning estimates? Unsure about creative briefs? Need the key to negotiate fees and rights? Are you searching to stand out from the competition? These questions and more will be answered and you’ll better understand what’s important in submitting bids and securing well-paid projects.
