ONLINE (NSW): Time Management for Creatives

May 8 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

A woman is sitting on a high stool at a long wooden counter in a cozy, stylish workspace. She is holding a cup of coffee and smiling. The wall behind her is decorated with various items including a large clock, framed pictures, a map, and small shelves with plants and books. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. In the bottom right corner, there is a logo for Service NSW Business Connect, indicating an approved provider.

Creative practitioners and arts professionals juggle an array of tasks and projects, not to mention their personal priorities as well. How on earth to make time for it all?

Most creatives are pushed to the limit when it comes to time management. Many are juggling work, freelancing gigs, passion projects, admin and marketing demands, as well as the other challenges that might come from parenting, caring responsibilities and other personal factors. There are solutions to these vexing issues, but there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. The added complexities of neurodiversity and creative thinking mean that more than one tactic might help.

‘Time Management for Creatives’ is a fun and relaxed online workshop that explores a variety of practical options for time management, specifically designed for a range of learning needs.


With a specific focus on the arts and creative industries, you will learn:

+ The different approaches and individual definitions of what ‘time management’ means.

+ The importance of breaking down what ‘time success’ and priorities mean for you.

+ The difference between deadlines and goals, and how to make that work in your favour.

+ Challenges to better time keeping, including all the different methods of procrastination.

+ Apps and processes that can help to create better time systems.

+ Bringing habits and small changes into effect for the long-term time management gain.

‘Time Management for Creatives’ is a collaborative workshop and participants will be encouraged to ask questions, share experiences and ideas, make connections and foster peer relationships.

What do I get? All participants of this workshop also receive:

+ Lifetime access to a Dropbox folder jam-packed with additional resources and helpful links.

+ A Workbook to assist with the practical elements of the workshop.

+ 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. We have a whole team ready to help!
