"I'd just like to say how much I enjoyed the session and what a boost it was to my confidence. I loved the 'can-do' attitude that you were advocating. I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but I've been getting a lot of work lately. 😊"
- Workshop Participant.
Scribble Ink's first workshop of 2018 could not have gone any better! I joined forces with London's leading writers' network, Spread The Word, to deliver a session for successful freelancers in the making and I'm pleased to say, the workshop SOLD OUT!
The primary learning objective was to identify the ways a creative (namely a writer) can benefit from a portfolio career. We explored a rainbow of entrepreneurial ideas, from brand identity, establishing one's ideal freelancing role, the cost effective ways of networking in an effective and professional manner, to pizza toppings (you had to be there). We also identified various job options in public and private sectors that are flexible, allow for financial stability, and offer opportunities to develop fundamental and transferable skills for roles in creative industries. Finally, participants were signposted to useful websites and videos to support portfolio development.
It was an honour to meet a room-full of enthusiastic, entrepreneurial souls, and I look forward to delivering more sessions of this hue in the near future.
