“The Interior Design Business” is a new, business-focused podcast series set up to offer best practice guidance, engaging insights and expert advice for professional interior designers.
“Podcasts offer a powerful and convenient communications platform and a perfect way for the interior design community to connect,” says Susie Rumbold, Principal at Tessuto Interiors, Past President of the British Institute of Interior Design and co-presenter of the series. “Practices and practitioners have grown, evolved and succeeded thanks to the sharing of ideas and experiences freely given by others. “The Interior Design Business” embodies that same community spirit. Each episode will provide designer-led content that’s entertaining, informative and very easy for other designers to access, when they’re on the move, or with a spare half hour to tune in at home or in the office. The series itself will also serve as a networking platform, hosting events to bring designers together in industry showrooms throughout the year.”
Following a pilot episode in September, the first launch episode released in December features Susie and fellow presenter, Jeff Hayward of industry PR and digital marketing specialist, Wildwood, in conversation with Lori Pinkerton-Rolet of Park Grove Design, another Past President of the BIID, as they tackle Designer Fees and Getting Paid. The show addresses key questions, including, how designers go about pricing a project, the value they should place on design, how they should deal with FF&E and the steps they can take to ensure a client pays for the service provided. Every episode of “The Interior Design Business” will see designers, educators and influencers give their views and experiences on similar business themes and also share their own life-changing design moments.
“The Interior Design Business” is a monthly business podcast from the people who connect the professional interior design community, Wildwood, produced in partnership with Alfi Media. The team behind the series has many years’ experience in live performance and a track record in programming and producing shows for BBC Radio 4, 5 Live and others. “The Interior Design Business” is available free from Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and other popular audio on-demand services.
