ADVICE

one-on-one support

Creative practitioners flourish with advice and mentoring.

When it come to the intricate issues of business, the Creative Plus Business advisory programs allow individual creatives and representatives of arts organisations to ask hard questions, work through challenges and access advice in a confidential and supportive environment.

Creative Plus Business offers a unique suite of tailored advisory services:

CHAT – casual one-off session of coaching about any creative business related topics. Learn more…

GROW – a series of six sessions that help practitioners and businesses stay on track and remain focussed and accountable through periods of change, growth and development. Learn more…

PLAN – a day of brainstorming around ideas, strategies and directions, which is best used by groups or individuals who are seeking an intensive business planning session to help them navigate the trickier aspects of growing their creative business or organisation. Learn more…

The distinctive feature of our advisory services is that all Creative Plus Business advisors are both experienced creative practitioners and experts in business. This combination of professional empathy and industry knowledge is the elixir that has resulted in over 5,000 satisfied advisory clients across a range of programs since 2015.

Our programs follow a tested method, focussing on intrinsic goals and the understanding of a client’s capacity in terms of creative practice, business nous and personal ability.

A MOUNTAIN OF KNOWLEDGE

“Creative Plus Business has supported ARACOURT from Day 1. From helping develop a name, to giving us the confidence and guidance in bringing our idea to life, we will be a consistent client of theirs as there is always more to learn. The team is caring, down-to-earth and always has a mountain of knowledge ready to share to all creatives. Every advisory session has helped our business greatly.”

IT WAS FABULOUS

“I accessed a 6-session advisory package and it’s been fabulous. Kelly assisted me to understand my vision, audience, goals and planning for the future, from my private practice to my website. She especially made me comfortable with ideas of marketing and branding by translating them into problem-solving terms. All of my tasks were relevant to my business and set jointly by us. If you are starting out or need a refresh then I highly recommend getting a jump start with Creative Plus Business.”
