Gail Doby’s annual Interior Design Summit, an intensive two-day business workshop, was held in Denver this past weekend for 115 eager interior designers. Doby co-founded the summit, along with Gail Doby Coaching & Consulting and Design Success University, with the goal of helping interior designers create more profitable and passion-filled businesses. “Our goal was to educate, inspire and transform the lives and businesses of our interior design firm owners,” shares Doby.

“It is like no other design conference I have ever attended,” says Sherrie Harries of SLH Design. “People are real, very friendly and helpful. So much information I can use to grow my business.”
