Navigating the Realities of Self Employment

September 19, 2023, 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM PDT

Free for EPIC Members

Shelley Sather, Principal, Demophile LLC

A roundtable of experienced business owners and independent practitioners will share their experiences and thoughts on building their own consultancies in our field. We’ll discuss how they did it, what they wished they had known before they started, and what they have learned since. We’ll also dive into the current opportunities and challenges launching and independent practice and building our value and services.

Shelly Sather

Shelley Sather uses qualitative, context-driven methods to bring people into the heart of the design process, shape early opportunity spaces and guide the expression of new things. She is drawn to work that constructs the space to think deeply about human problems, cross disciplinary collaboration and projects that have a bit of bravery baked in.
