Kati Curtis, principal of Kati Curtis Design, has been involved in many different groups during her 25-year career. She’s been to events hosted by the Design Leadership Network and Leaders in Design, a group with a similar mission. She’s now part of Design Share, a small, private group, that’s similar to Designers Collaborative, and she’s been a member of the invitation-only group The Boardroom, which is part of Gail Doby’s coaching service for interior designers. She says that as her business grows, she becomes more eager to connect with other designers.
“As a small business owner, there’s a new challenge every day. If your firm is growing, every six months you have to turn on a dime to change your business structure,” she observes.
“I donʼt want to be doing that on an island alone. Iʼd much rather be doing it with the help and input of peers whom I trust and admire.”
