Professional practice

Professional practice seminars are delivered to a number of trade, professional and charitable organisations. Typical seminar topics are strategy, business planning, project management, using contracts, financial management, time management and marketing. All seminars are tuned to meet the needs of designers. 

One-to-one business advice 'surgery' sessions are also provided whether as a compliment to group sessions, as mentoring for creative and business development, or with a specific brief as part of funded programmes.
