About this workshop

Would you like to raise your rates? And provide better service to your clients - existing and future? Whether you’re a freelancer, a consultant or running a service business, there’s one thing holding back your growth: your fees.

Why are some people offered huge sums, whilst others struggle to get by? How come they're always in demand, attract the best clients and retain their creative freedom?

It’s not luck. It’s not about their portfolio. It’s not even that they’re the most skilled. It’s because they know what they're worth and how to get it.

In this practical workshop with experienced consultant Thomas Cornwall, you’ll discover the step-by-step system he used to go from being uncomfortable talking about money to raising his rates more than 10x and delivering more value than he thought possible.

Even if you don’t like selling. Even if you don’t think people will pay more. Even if you aren’t sure if you’re ready to raise your rates. You’ll learn how to address the “elephant in the room”, gain confidence and charge what you’re really worth.
