DATE CHANGE – Join the ACA and the Business of Small Practice (BoSP) for a follow-up Q&A chat to delve into the detail about Managing Fee Variations on Wednesday 15 December. Book now!
In August 2021, Kate Fitzgerald, Warwick Mihaly and Mick Moloney (the three players behind the Indetail podcast*) spoke about the price of construction skyrocketing and what impact this is having on fees and services for small practices across the country. During and after that session, the ACA & BoSP received some brilliant questions about Contract Administration retainers, client guides, agreements and the 'how' of varying fees during rising construction prices. This session will be an open Q&A discussion based on these questions, and we warmly invite practices across the country to take part in this chat about how small practice Directors are dealing with this unique moment in time so we can all stay informed and connected.
It will be an hour-long conversation facilitated by ACA WA Branch Vice President, Kate FitzGerald - Come prepared to ask questions and share your own experiences – both good and bad – with fellow BoSPers around Australia!
You can read a recap of Part 1 of the conversation or dive into BoSP Managing Fee Variations Part 1 via our CPD on Demand.
*In Detail is the passion project of Mick Moloney, Warwick Mihaly and Kate FitzGerald, three small practice Directors working in Perth, Melbourne and Ballarat, Vic. The In Detail podcast takes listeners behind the scenes of creative business and lifts the veil of silence on running a business to share all the things Mick, Kate & Warwick wished they’d known when they started out. The trio tackled the taboo issue of fees in a two-part episode in Season One, and received an overwhelming feedback from their listeners about the use of Client Guides, Quantity Surveyors and things they’ve added to their fee proposals which are relevant to the conversation happening in the BoSP community about fees, budgets and industry price increases.
Kate Fitzgerald is the Co-Founder of Whispering Smith, a Fremantle-based practice delivering residential and commercial projects, Vice-President of the WA Branch of the ACA and Co-Founder of the BoSP.
