Following last year’s sell-out session (there wasn’t even standing room!), Camberyard’s Polly Williams is bringing together a different group of Camberyard Collective members to discuss the practical, day-to-day realities of running your own design business.

As The Designers’ Advisor at the multi-award winning Camberyard, Polly specialises in offering mentoring and business development advice to interior design professionals. She also brings these brands and designers together through her thriving Camberyard Collective, running a regular series of events. With 12 years’ experience advising an interior design studio in London and several years at Camberyard’s helm, Polly is a champion networker and knows how to launch a company and make it a success.

Be inspired as she and her panel from the Camberyard Collective discuss key business and marketing strategies for establishing and running your own interiors business. The panel, comprised of three interior designers and a brand, will discuss how to develop your USP, market your business in an ever-changing industry and find your target clients via creative collaborations and social media. If you’re passionate about interior design and launching and growing a successful business, don’t miss this valuable – and lively – talk.
