Creating Relationships and Partnerships for Referrals and Business Success

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Fisher & Paykel Experience Center
695 Town Center Drive.
Costa Mesa, CA 92626

Creating Relationships and Partnerships for Referrals and Business Success

.1 CEU

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.

Attendees Will:

Understand what services designers can offer contractors, and vice-versa, in order to produce successful projects and protect each other’s reputation.
Learn how an interior designer can assist a contractor in producing a precise construction bid, along with how the contractor can avoid morphing into a client’s “designer.”
Comprehend the benefits of having a designer help client select products and finishes, as well as discuss material costs, leaving the contractor free to focus on vital construction details.
Learn how to cultivate long-term, mutually beneficial relationships that can lead to increased profits for both parties.
Advance purchase of tickets is required, no ‘at the door’ registration.

*Registration will not be refunded after purchase is complete, any cannot be applied to a future meeting.

*CEU for NKBA is Self-Reported to National.

CEU: “A Designer’s Survival Guide- Chapter 1”

Today’s affluent consumers values and ideals are shifting and we set out to define them.

About the Host:

Since our founding more than 50 years ago, Dacor has tirelessly followed the principles of Techcraft to create new ways of making the time wespend with friends and family more enjoyable. Combining advanced technology with the artistry of precision craftsmanship, these principles have led us to continuously push the boundaries of what’s possible in the kitchen. Thinking beyond the functional purpose of the products we make, to the emotional role they play in your life. We see the kitchen asa space for togetherness, and the act of cooking and sharing meals as away to make deeper connections, create new memories and share laughs. And it’s through these principles that we continue to imagine,innovate and lead the way forward, reinventing the idea of what an appliance should be, and what a kitchen can be, to improve performance, inspire creativity and entice collaboration.

Masked in mystery and draped in decadence, the NKBA Southern California’s Masquerade Ball and Holiday Party will be nothing short of magical.

Enjoy scrumptious entrees prepared by our wonderful chef’s from California Fresh Catering. The dinner will be delightful – and we haven’t forgotten those with dietary restrictions! Make sure to mark your selection if you are ‘Vegan’ or ‘Gluten Free’. And, a bit of advice for everyone, keep an eye out for the ‘late night snacks’ for our partygoers (delish!).

Helicopter rides are being offered throughout the evening.
