  • Scribble Island: Bespoke One-to-One Life Coaching Consultations
    Content Overview: For years, it has been an honour to serve my purpose as a writer and consultant who coaches artists throughout their creative process. My content supports thousands of practitioners in all disciplines as they develop projects, including that unfinished novel, incomplete script, the e-gallery two clicks away from going live, or that album one song way from completion. So if you're serious, now is the time to access the following: 1:1 creative coaching e-sessions with flexible and bespoke guidance, an accountability partner with over a decade of industry knowledge, a safe space to ask the 'silliest' of questions and not feel judged, learn, network and excel on your own terms while claiming your seat at the table unapologetically, breathing space to workshop while establishing timelines, targets, tasks and project frameworks complimentary to your passion, schedule and budget, and follow-up activities to work on independently. Finally, as a holistic life coach, I will champion a realistic and fun work/life balance. I look forward to connecting and being part of your journey! Entitlements: AQA UAS eligibility.

  • Portfolio Power: Managing a Multipassionate Freelance Career
    Content Overview: This content is ideal for anyone with these questions: What kind of practitioner do I want to be? How do I get there? What should I do in the meantime? I already have a steady economic structure for my lifestyle, so I've no plans to change my employment just yet, but how does my day job influence my creativity, and how do the hard and soft skills I develop cross-pollinate? The primary learning objective is to identify how a creative can benefit from a portfolio career. We'll focus on brand identity, establishing one's ideal freelancing role and cost-effective ways of networking. We'll then explore the various flexible job options in the public and private sectors that allow for financial stability and offer opportunities to develop fundamental and transferable skills for roles in creative industries.

  • Business Model Canvas: Create the Building Blocks for Your Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
    Content Overview: Similarly to a vision board, the business model canvas is a visual tool that outlines key components of a business proposition. The nine categories on this canvas are a launchpad for a business plan, but more importantly, they provide the necessary first steps in mapping business logistics. Using case studies, storyboarding techniques, and think tank exercises, participants will lay the foundations and draft a blueprint of their business idea before plunging into any major investments with eyes wide shut.

  • MVP Building: Project Planning and Operational Strategies
    Content Overview: So, you have a fantastic idea for a creative enterprise, production or publication. Still, the bells and whistles of the final idea distract you from seeing the foundations of your endeavours, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, blocked and unsure of where to start. A minimum viable product (MVP) is a development technique in which a new product is introduced to the market with its most basic features. It is a great learning experience and low-risk, making an MVP worth building either for your business holistically or for a specific product or service within your business. An MVP is also the perfect segue to pilot testing. This content has been developed to get you thinking about how the three key values of an MVP can apply to your endeavours; subsequently, you can create an operational strategy that will allow you to bring your work to life in a tangibly manageable, cost-effective and fun way. Let's strip back so that we can propel forward! ​​​Entitlements: AQA UAS eligibility. Arts Award eligibility for Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.
