Wandsworth Creative Business Bootcamp & FREE Taster Session

From 11 Oct 2019

Are you a visual creative business owner, freelancer or professional who wants to boost their business skills?

Do you want to improve your marketing and social media skills, sell more online and make more money with your creative products and services?

The Design Trust, an award-winning online business school, has joined forces with Wandsworth Council to create a bespoke online training programme, to help visual creative entrepreneurs do just that. Through a series of online training sessions, you will learn the business skills you need to get more sales and orders and make your creative enterprise more sustainable and profitable.

The interactive sessions, led by Patricia van den Akker, director of The Design Trust, will take place on Friday mornings and will run for two hours. The sessions are practical and interactive, and if you do the practical homework exercises between the sessions, you can implement the learning immediately.

These sessions are online and they will all be recorded, so if you are unable to make them live then that’s not a problem! PLUS, you can join us from the comfort of your own home or studio, as long as you have internet access.

This unique business development programme, which starts on Friday 11 October and runs through until March 2020, will also feature live networking at Battersea Arts Centre, showcasing events for local participants, online interviews and opportunities with local experts and partners.

The six online sessions will cover:
  • How to create a strong product collection and brand – Friday 11 October
  • Marketing and social media to get more Christmas sales – Friday 18 October
  • How to get more online sales – Friday 1 November
  •  How to make your creative business more profitable – Friday 1 February
  • How to make more money – Diversify and alternative income streams for creatives – Friday 28 February

The full programme (usually priced at £125) is part funded by Wandsworth Council costs and £55 for Wandsworth entrepreneurs and residents and £75 for those outside the borough.
