For regular business and marketing support, Creative Network is running at New Brewery Arts every six weeks. The forums fuse networking and training, offer low-cost support to help you progress positively within your work

Every six weeks there will be opportunity to get business and marketing support where you will have the chance to talk about challenges and rewards of work life with a highly qualified and experienced expert.

The sessions are run by business trainer and mentor, Abbi Kirby (BA Crafts, MBA) who says, "These bite-sized sessions are the perfect tonic to get you out and start thinking and talking about work life. Infact, it's the conversations which everyone enjoys the most. Talking and discussing is a vital element in feeling positive and getting motivated to being productive and selling. I established Creative Network to try and reduce the feeling of isolation people can feel when working solo - as research suggests there's a staggering 91% of self employed people who suffer from isolation. Together within a small group we identify your goals and establish how to reach your potential. Let's map out what you need to be getting on with."

Creative Network welcomes creatives at all levels and abilities including those who support, manage and promote arts, crafts and design sectors. If you're interested please do email Abbi with your questions.
