No matter how sharp your design skills, you still face technological, business, and career challenges. So AIGA Portland brings you Career Tools, sponsored by 52 Ltd. and CENTRL Office. Every quarter, come enjoy breakfast and coffee with accomplished industry leaders and designers who equip you with skills driving their professional success.

What can I learn at Career Tools?

At each Career Tools, a different speaker talks about practices they’ve developed to succeed. These presentations and discussions include managing your studio and business, developing client relationships, public speaking and presentation skills, and adopting new practices and procedures to deliver projects. Expect tools you can take away and implement immediately.
