The Specialist Decorator

The seminar focused on how decorators can increase their earnings by specialising in a specific area. With 40 years of experience as a decorator, it’s clear to see the advantages of niching down.

By focusing on one area, decorators can reduce competition, charge higher rates, and become the go-to expert in a particular niche.

This seminar is a must-watch for decorators who want to enhance their skills and profitability by specialising in their craft.
