This in-person workshop is a surprisingly fun event designed to encourage creative people to get to know each other, while acknowledging the horror, and sharing a few tips at the same time. While it’s a vital skill in the creative industries, many practitioners consider networking to be the stuff of nightmares. Networking Tips for Creatives combines education with the opportunity to practice in a safe and friendly environment while embracing the discomfort of the whole process and having a laugh.
Tips that will be shared include:
+ Success is before you start – preparing before the event;
+ Mastering the art of the introduction;
+ Overcoming shyness, awkwardness and the urge to run away;
+ Dealing with difficult people;
+ Getting the all-important follow-up right.
You’ll learn how to network in the first half of the session, and practice your skills in the second half.
What do I get? All participants of this workshop also receive:
+ Lifetime access to a dedicated NETWORKING Dropbox folder full of additional resources and workbooks to help continue the learning after the workshop is over;
+ Access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop;
+ The possibility of further one-to-one business advice, mentoring and support from one of our creative industries business specialist advisors.
All questions are welcome in this relaxed, safe and inclusive workshop. Participants are also encouraged to share their own experiences and network with their fellow practitioners.
Ideal For: Curious hobbyists, creative freelancers and businesses, arts organisations.
