Are you an ambitious creative business in Gloucestershire?

If so take a look at this inspirational one-day business development workshop, PLUS follow up support, which is being delivered by The Growth Hub and Create Gloucestershire. 

The workshop take place on Wednesday 19th September 2018, one of the first to be hosted at the stunning new Growth Hub in Gloucester.

With inspiring surroundings and creative gurus on-hand, plus a group of like-minded businesses, this programme is designed to support you to develop a plan that takes your ideas and business to the next stage of growth.

Worth well in excess of £1000 per business, this programme is fully-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), at no cost to you.

Julie Ellison, Growth Hub Business Guide and resident creative specialist, will facilitate a bustling day of practical, outcome-oriented workshops. She will work directly with each creative business to understand their challenges and help them plan their next steps, along with two industry experts:

Peter Anderson, a TEDx and international speaker, will share his expertise on inspirational leadership, specifically in the creative industry. With his distinctive dynamic style, Peter will challenge fixed mindsets and take you out of both your seats and your comfort zone:

Rachel Savage, a highly experienced communications expert, will guide you through the process of creating a brand story that gets right to the heart of your business and helps you win more of it.

In addition, Caroline Fedash, marketing expert and graphic designer in the Create Gloucestershire team, will be available throughout the day to explore how the CG network could support your business moving forwards and provide useful connections and links with other creatives in Gloucestershire.

Places are limited, please apply via Eventbrite.

This event and follow up support is for creative businesses in Gloucestershire with ambition and serious plans to grow; through revenue, activity or employees. If you satisfy these criteria, and you have not already worked with a Growth Hub Business Guide, you are likely to be accepted.
