Instagram post 2116839509932315580_295518986 We are excited to introduce our new 2 day retreat called 'The Creative Start-up retreat'.
-
Karishma Kusurkar from Karishma’s world and Christine James from Blick Shared Studios will be running a 2 day creative enterprise retreat on the 5th & 6th of October.
-
They are aiming to empower and inspire creatives to make their creative business idea a reality. Having worked with creative businesses over the past decade, we wanted to create a tailor-made retreat for those in the creative sector looking to start something new.
-
We know that it can be particularly challenging to build a viable business in the creative sector and our hope is that this retreat makes it a little easier to understand how that could be made possible whilst ensuring your creativity is able to flourish.
-
Over the weekend retreat, we will focus on 4 key areas:
-
Values & Vision – understanding your values, vision and goals and how these will impact your creative business.
-
Your Customer Journey – understanding your customers’ values and needs, ensuring your business meets their needs and learning how to communicate with potential customers before, during and beyond launching a product or service.
-
Business idea & Skills – refining your business idea, products & services, understanding your USP, pricing your work, networking and making connections and managing your finances.
-
Communicating with your customers – creating a brand with integrity (visuals, words & actions), building an online presence that works (website, social media etc.) and presenting your work in person (sales, pitching & presentations)
-
At the end of the retreat participants will leave with a completed values and vision board, creative enterprise toolkit (useful resources & templates) and a creative business action plan.
-
The full course will cost £80.
-

Instagram post 2115998541142080506_295518986 We are excited to announce our next event that is happening on the 10th September titled :
SME’s Survival – Unlocking Your Business Potential With Your Customers Perspective
-
SME’s face significant challenges today. Accessing new customers and retaining existing customers is hard work. This is because customers today are spoiled for choice and have more options to choose from than ever before. But also, because habits are constantly changing as technology evolves around us.
-
This session is about offering SME’s practical tools that they can use for their business to help them access their customer, understand who they are and their habits. The more you understand about your customer, the more opportunities for you to increase revenue from different customer markets. Markets that you’re missing at the moment because the needs of certain customer groups is unknown to you.
-
There are only 10 places* available so booking fairly early on is essential. To book, https://elizabethmeehan.typeform.com/to/DD2lAM
- *2 persons from each SME allowed.
-
This session forms part of USER-FACTOR a three-year project funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme, aiming to strengthen innovation in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). It is offered free but, offering the latest thinking in, it is worth £265
-
Location: Blick Shared Studio, 46 Hill St
Date & Time: 10th September, 6-9pm
Booking: see link above and complete short form
