Event Information

All creatives struggle to obtain fees commensurate to work they deliver and Architects are no exception. In this webinar, Alec Drew will include examples of how to price your work, how to overcome the barriers of obtaining the fees you deserve and how to avoid doing those little extras that every client expects free of charge.

Alec’s relaxed and humorous style, backed up with a wealth of true life stories, delivers a unique perspective on business and the eternal challenge of commanding the right fees.

I've been working with Alec for just over a year now. I find Alec great to work with. He has great insights and he's able to help spot elements of the business that need time and energy invested in them. Currently helping us plan our way through COVID19 and to also help us plan for the new world when we emerge from all this. Definitely recommended.

Steven Bray, Managing Director, Alternative Energy Ireland.

Alec shared his knowledge in a way that gave our members a new way of addressing their most urgent challenges. His simple but intuitive insights provided a thought provoking session that not only engaged everyone but gave them valuable tools to take back to their organisations. His questioning and facilitating was impressive and I have suggested to our HO that he should be considered as a speaker for other groups.

Alec Drew - The Business Expert is a fountain of knowledge and expertise. If you need any assistance with a Corporate decision or considering a Change Management process and are looking for great advice, or even an excellent sounding board to bounce an idea or Strategic plan, Alec is your man.

Wil Walsh, Managing Director, InShip.

"Alec is just one of those people who understands people and business. When it comes to strategic thinking and creating and executing ideas Alec is one of the best. He thinks very creatively yet very much has his mind on the outcome and more importantly how to get there. This is an incredibly powerful combination of skills... I found Alec to be great at challenging me to think differently and come up with real solutions. I have had the great pleasure of working with him on strategy and also through his radio show. A consumate professional who just gets it and is fun to be around at the same time. I would highly recommend Alec to any business who needs to define and execute real plans for their business and the future"
