Design Week 2018: Improv Your Sales Skills

“I can’t stand sales!” How many times have you heard, or said that? Most designers groan at the idea of selling themselves or their work, and many actively avoid it. But it doesn’t matter if you are an independent designer, work within an agency or anywhere in-between–– the fact of the matter is, if you don’t sell, it’s going to be pretty hard to make a living.

With that in mind, join us and Baltimore Improv Group for a special Design Week improv workshop helping you hone your sales skills. Then, stay for a fun show with some of BIG’s best improvisers as they hilariously memorialize a special guest in a series of made up, totally unprepared comedy scenes. 

Learn to employ basic improv comedy exercises to create a playful and safe environment in which to focus on sales skills. Exercises will coach on being in the moment, actively listening, and building on objectives to a place of agreement. 

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." -William James

AIGA Baltimore Design Week 2018

This year’s AIGA Baltimore Design Week is an exploration of topics related to the boundaries – real and artificial – that constrain, separate, protect, and define us. As designers, as Baltimoreans, and as people.

Join us, along with luminaries from Baltimore’s academic and design communities, for a series of events and discussions in October as we look back at developments that shaped Baltimore design over the last year, and look ahead to what’s next. See the full week of events here.
