The Speakers

Russell Britton (@brandnatter)

Talk: How much will it cost?

Ever got flummoxed when a customer asks for a flat out cost for a project, even before you know the spec, requirements etc? Most customers will just have the end product in mind but don’t realise the process you need to go through to get there. Russell shares hints, tips and practical advice on how you can package your services so to help communicate to punters what you do and what it means to them – and in some cases bypass free-pitching altogether!

Bio

Russell has been working in brand development & design for over 10 years and works with business of all shapes and sizes from global PLC's to SME's. Along with his own freelance consultancy he is also brand director at HB&Co, a new Digital Agency which he co-runs with Port80 founder @joel_hughes.

Originally from Somerset, Russell has been living and working in Wales for since 2000 but still has a mangle-wurzel-Bristolian accent - but don't let that put you off!

I got bored of waiting for a web conference (of the type I wanted) to come to South Wales, so (with the amazing help of Twitter), this is what we achieved.
