Anatomy of Contract
November 17, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
If you do not have a contract for your clients and suppliers stop now and come to this event!
Contracts are often an ‘overlooked’ item when starting a business, however it is one of the most essential pieces you need for your business. Having a contract that sets the expectations of both parties will help protect you as you build your business and can stop you falling into the pitfalls of clients not paying and possibly suing you.
This workshop will give you an overview of what to include in your contract such as deliverables, timelines and expectations. Having a contract that has been though through and reviewed by a lawyer will give the ability to proceed bringing on more clients and build your business with confidence.
