Project managers are responsible for taking a book from raw manuscript to print-ready files, on time and on budget. What exactly is involved in project management? How does a project manager schedule the work and monitor the progress? What happens when things don’t go as planned? Lori Paximadis will take you on a tour of the project management process.

We’ll discuss how to:

  • Assess a project
  • Build a solid team
  • Create scheduling strategies
  • Find high- and low-tech project tracking options
  • Put a project back on the rails

Streamline Your Business with Systems

Running a freelance business is not for sissies. Not only do you need to do what your clients hire you to do, but you must also nurture your client relationships, find new clients, manage your overall workflow and individual projects, keep on top of your invoices and finances, and so much more all without losing your mind. This session will explore how to use systems to save time, increase productivity, bring flow to your business, and ultimately make more money.
