Start-Up Success

February 2, 2021 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Be creative. Make money. Love your work.

Start-Up Success is a panel webinar featuring five successful creative business practitioners who have been through the ups, downs, good and bad of starting out. Rosie Lourde, Pauline Clague, Nick Bolton, Carl Sciberras and Robyn Saurine have all started their own businesses in the creative sector and now work as Business Connect advisors. In this panel, they will share their own stories and offer advice and guidance to participants who want to know more about the basics, with a particular view on the creative industries, and how to manage a start-up in a post-COVID world. 

This webinar will be facilitated by award-winning creative industries expert Monica Davidson.
