Calling all practice owners, sole practitioners and architects working in small practices! We’ve developed a series of interactive events to provide a forum to discuss issues and problems that crop up in the day to day running of a practice.
Our new Practice Clinics will create dialogue, discussion and provide practice support. Each clinic will tackle two different subjects with two panels of experts and attendees can either submit a question they book their ticket or simply come along to join in the conversation.
The event will be interactive, allowing for attendees to pose questions to the panel and offer their own advice and experience.
The format is simple, if you have a hit a hurdle with a Legal or Project Management issue or problem this event will aim to solve it. You can submit questions when you book your ticket or put a question to the floor for our experts and your peers to discuss.
