Sheri and Spark to Host a Talk at the MYOB Conference

This September 25-28th I’ll be attending the HOW magazine’s Mind Your Own Business Conference in Austin, Texas. While I am there I, along with my colleague and Spark VP, Christina Hagopian, will be hosting a Spark Roundtable on Proposal Strategies and Pricing.

During this round table discussion, we will be candidly sharing with colleagues from around the country how each firm might respond to and price two sample projects – one print, one web. We’ll provide a brief description of the client and project scope and then circle the room sharing what each firm would typically propose. It will be a fabulous discussion as we compare pricing, firm size, services provided, and overall approach to the defined objectives.

I for one expect to come back with a better understanding of how MSLK stacks up to our competition nationwide and how we can offer the best value of services to our clients.

Maybe you’d like to join us?
