Clients From Hell (And How To Avoid Them)

Join Kyle Carpenter at Creative Pulse on Thursday, Jun 28th.

As professional creatives, we get to do work we love. But not all of us get to work for people we love.

On June 28th, Kyle Carpenter from Clients From Hell will share his site’s most popular horror stories. Additionally, we will facilitate an audience conversation so you can learn from your peers’ worst client experiences.

Besides commiserating with one another — we’ll discuss what smart commercial creatives can do to avoid common pitfalls.

Creatives of all backgrounds can attend to discover:

  • The most common types of breakdowns and why they happen
  • How to detect and avoid awful clients
  • Course correction tactics to help with difficult situations

Join us at /Archive Digital for tasty beverages, pizza and a constructive conversation about horrible clients.
