DBA Experts are here to help you navigate the challenges and decisions you face as you grow your business. Our register of accredited expert consultants have sustained and relevant experience in supporting the design industry, so you can rest assured that you will be getting sound, high-level support.

Ask an Expert
At this exceptional time, DBA Experts are offering DBA members an extra level of support to help steer you through the next stage of dealing with the effects of Covid-19. For a limited time, some will be offering free, one-off, “ask an Expert” conversation slots to provide DBA members with a vital touchstone on the particular challenges you are facing right now.

  • These calls won’t form consultancy, but they will offer an opportunity for DBA members to discuss one topic in an area of expertise relevant to that DBA Expert. 
  • The duration and structure of the call will be at the discretion of the individual Expert and they may ask you to provide some information prior to the call.

DBA Experts who are participating each week will provide a Calendly link on their profile where you can book in with them directly. Please use the search bar below to look for those Experts who cover the topic you wish to discuss, or alternatively select ‘Ask an Expert’ from the categories dropdown menu to reveal a list of experts participating in this initiative.

Our Experts have extensive experience supporting the creative industries and are:

  • DBA approved.
  • Recommended by peers.
  • Reference checked.

If you’re interested in becoming a DBA Expert find out more. Alternatively email Adam Fennelow or call 020 7251 9229 for more information.
