Let’s Build Our Community Together!

As a long-time supporter of the NKBA, 2020 would like to connect with the local NKBA chapters throughout the year to offer presentation topics and to help promote your membership and meetings.

2020 would love to be a part of your local meetings. Below is an offering of presentations which will be submitted for CEU credit for 2018. If your meeting has 50 or more attendees, 2020 would like to hear about it and see if we could send you an industry expert to present. For smaller meetings, we can offer a virtual presentation.

2020 is happy to promote local chapter events. Connect with us on social.

You want to give your client everything they want in the world including luxury, comfort, happiness, and harmony but you have to do all of this in smaller and smaller spaces.

They really begin right up front on your computer as you design, navigate and eventually present these tiny spaces to your clients Join me in this session as we look at best practices in small space design and take it a step further in sharing techniques in both designing in your CAD as well as how to best present/share the designs with your clients. We will focus on improving the design cycle as well as inspiring your clients with enhanced understandings of their space.
A typical day in the kitchen and bath industry is usually fun, rewarding and fulfilling but there are those moments that many dread. The moment your phone loudly blares the warning siren of a text message, email, phone call from a client that is less than satisfied … sometimes downright apoplectic.

One proven tool is understanding how to best utilize the partnership between manufacturer, dealer, and designer to increase your probability of profitably navigating these situations.

With almost Sci-Fi quality technology swirling around them, Clients today expect (sometimes demand) to be Wowed when it comes to designer presentations. And knocking their socks off is imperative to all of us to close that sale. But great renderings and presentations can do so much more for our businesses. They can help set the right client expectations up front to prevent issues later. Preventing future issues protects our margins. They can easily offer multiple design options and make it easier to for all of us to make smart decisions in design. That leads to happy customers.
