I attended the Kingston Smith W1 seminar last night where I was presenting my view on 'Is the price right?'. The other presenters were Esther and Mandy from Kingston Smith W1 - superb as ever, plus Mark Lund with his perspective of the COI and Payment by Results, and Paul Graham from Anomaly on the way that they work with clients in terms of their fees. Despite feeling under the weather, I really enjoyed the event and found the other presentations really interesting. Worth attending next year if you are interested in the financial study that Kingston Smith W1 produce every year.
Just seen this about the new initiative that the IPA ans ISBA are working on - in looking at the process of ‘reforming’ pitching to save time and money. It is good to see them working together but wonder if they will make contact with CIPS (the Purchasing body) to see if they want a procurement perspective.
