Presentation Know Your Worth: Communication Strategies for Dealing with Clients From Hell
As the editor in chief of Clients From Hell, Kyle Carpenter knows your pain. For years now he has read every story about stiffed payments, unreasonable demands, sexist clients and requests for Comic Sans submitted to clientsfromhell.net . He knows how bad it can get out there, and he feels for each and every one of you creative workers dealing with bad clients.
In this talk, Kyle will go over some of his “favourite” stories from the Clients From Hell archives and discuss strategies for how to deal with troublesome clients, or even avoid them entirely. Laugh, cry, commiserate… then strategize.
Kyle Carpenter is an award-winning writer, content manager, and the editor in chief of Clients From Hell. He’s also a swell guy who recently moved to Halifax and can’t wait to meet you. Come hang out and share your war stories with him! Trust us, though – he’s heard them all.
Holding your artist meetup birthday in January is always a gamble. Especially with how the weather is here in Nova Scotia. Yet, so many lovelies braved the rain and wind to celebrate seven years of creative hangouts. Read More
How lucky is Halifax to be celebrating 7 years of creative output?
When: Thursday, Jan 24th, 7pm til late
Where: The Foggy Goggle
Can you believe it, we’re turning 7! Seems like only yesterday we held our first meetup on a cold and rainy winter night in Downtown Halifax. We’ve evolved a lot over the years, and we plan to take things up a notch in 2019. But first things first… let’s party!
We want to thank everyone who came out Thursday December 7th with donations! There was plenty of supplies to create holiday cards for loved ones and strangers alike. The Foggy Goggle had $4 Propeller Porters on tap to keep us in (tipsy) spirits. Read More
This year we are taking cash (preferred*) and non-perishable food items for Feed Nova Scotia. The holiday season can be a stressful enough time without worrying about putting food on the table, so let’s fill some bellies!
Inspirational talks can take all sorts of forms. Here at E3C, we like to keep things informal and cozy! In November we held our first “Design Drink & Discuss”. This new talk series brings designers and other creative professionals together. The purpose? To be inspired by the experiences of other local creatives. Read More
A meetup for all designers: graphic, product, web, game and UI/UX. Meet other local designers in a non-networking setting: this is all about fellowship and getting to know one another. The meetup starts with a presentation, followed by Q & A and general mingling. Read More
We Love Our Home
Since 2013, E3C has called The Foggy Goggle home. Without their warm hospitality, excellent service and creative drinks, we wouldn't be the meetup we are today. They are a Halifax treasure.
Monthly Meetup Mayhem
E3C meets once a month at the Foggy Goggle Restaurant & Pub. 7pm until close. See the Events Calendar for the next Meetup theme.
Sponsors: Hang With Us
We welcome creative companies and organizations to sponsor a meetup. Come connect with Halifax's most interdisciplinary collection of artists around.
