Career Design Mentorship: Creating A Job-winning Portfolio 

Wednesday

21 April 2021

5 PM MYT

The portfolio: a creative’s bread and butter — and also the bane of their life. Any creative can relate to the stress that comes with compiling a portfolio: is the design eye-catching enough? Is this important to leave in or irrelevant? Does the layout make sense? Combined with the fact that employers will ask to look at it, the pressure is really on.

It’s time to lay those burning questions to rest and learn from an expert who can level up your portfolio game and effectively reel recruiters in. Mohd Asrizal Bin Razali is a lecturer from Taylor’s Design School with over a decade of experience and his knowledge is all yours!

In this mentorship, you will gain:

✅ In-depth tips on portfolio curation

✅ Knowledge on how to navigate and avoid common portfolio misconceptions and mistakes

✅ Know-hows from real-life portfolio examples, samples and case studies

✅ A better understanding of your portfolio objective for maximum return

✅ An exclusive chance for our mentor to review one lucky participant's portfolio during the session and receive advice you can’t get anywhere else (if you're daring enough to show it, that is👾) - only for members!

 

This mentorship is going live on 21 April 2021, Wednesday @ 5PM MYT via Zoom. Don't forget, signing up as a member will get you our April Career Resources Kit with downloadables and complimentary access to all our digital experiences and more.

Managing Client Expectations Panel Discussion with Razlan Yusof, Ying Nee Ooi-Bowles & Nicholas Hon

Wednesday

24 Feb 2021

5.30pm MYT

Should you give up, or should you just keep chasing payments?

 

As creatives, we're pretty sure we all have that one (or two!) client nightmare experiences that keep us up at night every now and then. It's a tightrope to walk — managing expectations (and hopefully get paid!) while also running the biz and giving your best creative work. In times like these, we wonder if we’re actually dealing with our clients the right way, and vice versa.  

 

With that, we are hosting a panel discussion on mastering the art of client management. In this panel, we have specially curated a line of creative badasses: Ying Nee Ooi-Bowles from @commaspr, Razlan Yusof of @creativematchstudio and Nicholas Hon from @urbanweapons to give us their thoughts on how to own the client experience during these unusual times. 

 

In this panel, we will be covering:

 

✅ Methods to build a loyal client base (and what tactics win them over!)

✅ Insider tips on staying profesh with difficult clients, and when to say bye-bye to potentially toxic ones…

✅ Owning your expertise and payment terms so you know how to manage expectations

✅ Strategies on how to deal with sticky and/or #awkward situations when things go south

✅ How to set clear boundaries, manage timelines and the team during turbulent times 

✅How to keep the professional relationship on track 

 

Join us and our line-up of rule-breakers to avoid those "never again' moments in the future. 

This is RM35 for non-members and free for paid members to opt in here.
