Design Snack – Relationships Matter Most

By NYIAD Mentor on April 22nd, 2015

Welcome to another NYIAD Design Snack! In this week’s video, we learn that in the business of wedding or event planning, it’s the relationships you build with clients and vendors that matter more than anything else.

NYIAD students and graduates in the field of wedding and event planning that they get most of their business through referrals. That means that anyone you work with, whether it’s a venue, a caterer, a designer, or the clients themselves, can be the source of future work.

Learning how to work with clients and vendors to establish successful relationships is crucial to success. In a field where referrals are that important, you can be a great planner but if you’re lacking the people skills to develop relationships, you may struggle to grow.

Want to learn more about these exciting fields? The New York Institute of Art and Design offers an online wedding planning course as a brand new event planning course. Get your free course catalog today!
