It is the perfect way to build a network/connect with other designers. Here’s how they work: The groups are curated. Minimum of six designers, maximum of 10. We meet online for two hours a month and chat via slack channel in-between. The meetings are usually 10am-12 noon.
Discussions vary, they are swayed by what’s needed for the group, but the type of discussions we’ve done previously have included: • coaching / directing styles (specifically for directing freelancers) • types of studio management software and what reports are most valuable • studio models (how to do more work without putting on more people) • new business (usually each meeting has a little bit about new business) • workflow • pricing models Each meeting starts with a wrap up of the previous month (challenges/wins) making us all accountable, did we do what we said we were going to. And ends with an ‘ask-me-anything’ with curve-ball questions.
