The Designer Experience: BXtraordinary

Making others feel calm, comfortable, deserved and safe is no small feat. Add to that a pandemic plus a movement to end racial inequity, and it’s easy to see we’ve been immersed in a world of change.  You, personally. Our industry, as a whole. And the world, in general.

At the upcoming Designer Experience, let’s reflect on last year’s influx of challenges while celebrating this year’s movement toward positive change and new ways of Being Extraordinary.

KEYNOTE: Sonya Haffey, Principal of V Starr Interiors

Don’t Pivot, Just Shift: Volatile times don’t necessarily necessitate a major restructuring of your company. When you know your strengths and the secondary and tertiary markets associated with your services and products, you can use small creative shifts to keep your business moving forward.
