Here at Creative Entrepreneurs, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Quarterly Events Programme. With our extensive events offering, we wanted to make it easy for you to view a whole season at a time and book your calendar well in advance.
To celebrate new beginnings, we’re kicking off with our Spring Programme, running from March through May 2021.
As ever, our Founder, Carolyn Dailey, will be in conversation with a raft of inspiring creative founders and experts to unveil inside information, hard-earned do’s and don’ts and the best practices of building a brilliantly creative business.
Our events are tailor-made for anyone working across the creative industries and either thinking about making that leap into entrepreneurship or with a business ready to grow or scale big time.
You’ll leave each session with actionable takeaways that you can apply to your business right away. Ready to book? Head to Eventbrite for the full lowdown.
