We have had a great track record with this workshop and it has helped to inspire and motivate people to start up their own businesses doing a variety of different things. This workshop is ideal for people in the early stages of their business, whether you have launched your business and would like help to move it forward or it is still just an idea.
Previous participants have included people who are setting up businesses to sell their sculptures, painted furniture, import products from abroad to sell in the UK, provide garden, interior and lighting design services, create a community venture as well as people who are still exploring their ideas but want to learn more about what’s involved before they get started.
It has been so exciting to see the success that previous attendees have had already and include luxury interiors brand Nicky Heard who said: "I attended your inspiringworkshop last year on starting your creative business which I found really helpful. I have now started a handmade furnishings business with handwoven ikat fabric and other collections, both knitted and linen/cotton. I wanted to send you the link to my website as without your workshop I'd probably not be up and running! So thank you!" Nicky, www.nickyheard.com
During this one day workshop, we will be discussing all aspects of starting up a successful business from my own experience – you can learn from all my mistakes and I will share my top tips for success. Plus, you will be among others in exactly the same boat as you – something I wish that I had had before starting my business.
