Tomorrow, bespoke furnituremaker Neil Stevenson of NEJ Stevenson will join a panel discussion as part of the seminar programme at Decorex International, taking place at London's Syon Park until Wednesday.

The talk, entitled ‘Deconstructing the brief: the importance of form, function and understanding your client’s vision,’ is scheduled to take place at 11am in the seminar theatre, and will be chaired by BIID president Gilly Craft. Other panellists include BIID-registered interior designers Henry Prideaux and Beata Heuman.

Together, the panellists will discuss the essential job of establishing and truly understanding a client brief, exploring the importance of finding out exactly what the client requires at the earliest stage in the design process, and interrogating the brief so that expectations match the results of the finished project.

Neil comments: “I’m delighted to be taking part in the talks programme at Decorex this year. It is important that we, as design professionals, understand exactly what our customers want, and I’m looking forward to sharing my own experiences and ideas with the other panellists. It is set to be a varied, thought-provoking discussion, and I hope that the audience can take away some valuable points for use in their own businesses.”
