Webinar: Planning for retirement

We encountered difficulties in producing and distributing the David C. Baker “Financial Metrics” series and feel we need to cancel this webinar, since all who signed up were not able to easily access them.

The David C. Baker webinar series has been very successful, as expected, in providing meaningful and helpful content for AIGA members. We will explore improvements in the system and work with David to see if there are other ways for members to experience his advice.

AIGA will continue to host other webinars throughout the year. If there is particular webinar programming you’d like to see from AIGA, please let us know!

Presented by David C. Baker as part of the “Financial Metrics” series, provided as a benefit for AIGA members at the Sustaining Member level and above

This webinar will help attendees learn:

  • The proper ranking of the following priorities: enjoying your work, making money, creating great culture and doing effective work for clients
  • What happens when the ranking changes, and how such a change impacts your sustainability
  • Why principals leave the field, on average, six years before other professional services, and how to reverse that movement
  • What distinguishes the principals who make money ethically from those who do not (there’s not just one factor, but many)

This session will help you gain a better understanding of how current decisions will impact your retirement plan.
