How to outsource and expand your communication business

April 11, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Are you ready to take on larger or more financially lucrative work in your communications practice, but concerned about your ability to manage such projects?

A great option exists between hiring staff and keeping your practice small. Working with subcontractors to get the skills or support you need for larger projects is an ideal way to grow your business at a pace you can manage.

Join IABC/Toronto’s Professional Independent Communicators (PIC) to learn how a panel of accomplished communicators have been able to expand their business through outsourcing.
