More Gigs, Less Stress. - Presented by Akash Thakkar.

  • Mosiac Sound Collective 640 FM 969 Austin, Texas United States (map)

We're all in for a treat! This month we have special guest Akash Thakkar visiting all the way from Seattle to give us a presentation about how to handle getting gigs.

His talk starts at 7:30 and we'll hang out at Mosaic for a bit. Bring snacks and drinks and come ready to learn from an experienced audio contractor working on awesome things :)

Afterwards we'll hang out and possibly head to a nearby brewery to continue the conversation.

Talk Overview:
Talk Title: More Gigs, Less Stress When it comes to landing gigs, there are so many moving parts. How can you make sure the client is legit? How do you deal with any objections and pushback that they may have? How do you do all of this while making sure that the client is happy to pay you a great rate? In this talk, we'll talk about all of these topics and much more!
