Running a Website Company by Daren Hawes

It seems we all face similar issues running our web design companies. Even if you’re a freelancer or a large digital agency the same challenges are seen time and time again. This session is not designed to tell you how to run your business, but instead facilitate a group discussion on similar problems we face day to day.

Topics will be defined, and Daren Hawes, CEO of Web Design Magic, will moderate the conversations with the goal that all involved will walk away with tips on making their web design businesses more productive, professional and profitable. This session is interactive, which will enable partners to discuss similar issues, how best to tackle them and how others have done so in the past.
