EARN WHILE YOU LEARN

We’ve all finished professional development courses then returned to the studio, never to use the knowledge gained. DBS programs are a unique approach: the lessons are based on your studio. You learn new skills tailored to improving your studio’s business performance. We make the learnings stick by working alongside you while you learn, and staying close while you implement. The results are better performing, more capable businesses.

Better still, you can start when you want and work at your own pace. The programs are delivered online, via skype and face-to-face, ready to go when you are.

Every program has a KPI that ensures it gives you a return on investment, turning professional development from an expense to a fee generator.

The DBS delivers PD that’s not available anywhere else in Australia.

THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP MANAGEMENT SKILLS FOR:

  • Design studio owners

  • Design studio managers

  • Client service directors

  • New business directors

  • Studio managers

  • Design managers

DBS WILL GIVE YOU

Programs that help develop management skills in your studio.

Add value for your studio and clients through practical programs that build on the projects in your studio.

Learn and earn while you improve studio performance.

Selling traditional design services is a transactional activity. Selling design value takes the transaction to a relational level.

See how the DBS programs can take you from transactional design to relational design while improving studio performance and the bottom line.

The empathy map was great because we get too bogged down in the day-to-day and this opened our mind to look at clients from a different perspective with different solutions. Great tool – thanks Greg
