Software Training for Interior Designers
The interior design industry is quickly shifting from primarily using CAD to requiring Revit. If your design team isn’t trained on Revit, you may be missing out on significant revenue. GA Interior Solutions has several Revit Training Programs for beginners and intermediate skill levels. Our programs are created explicitly for interior designers. If you are considering switching to Revit, the right training partner can ease the burden and support your firm’s transition.
Imagine sitting across from a client, and feeling a bit nervous about the finish samples spread out across the table. Will they get the design concept, see your vision, jump on board. It can feel awkward to share your vision and persuade someone to say yes. With SketchUp Pro, you can help the client visualize how the space is going to feel. Rather than just seeing materials laid out on a table, they can see how those come together in their space. At GAI, we offer SketchUp Training for Interior Designers.

This article goes into 12 potential revenue streams and evaluating the best option for your interior design firm.

In this article, we are covering the importance of leadership along with 10 ways to improve your leadership skills.
When I first became a director of marketing, I had managed several people over the years. Throughout, I continued to struggle with giving a project or assignment to someone, and when it came back, it was all wrong. Ugh. I couldn’t understand why the projects weren’t what I wanted. For years, I thought it was the employee’s fault, until one day, as I was sitting at my desk with my head in my hands, it dawned on me to look at the work from a different perspective. What I learned that day completely changed how I managed creative people.
