Kick Start Your Creative & Artistic Career

Kick Start the New Year! Make 2017 a year to remember for your creative or artistic practice.

Creative & Artistic Entrepreneurs Intensive Training Programme
2 1/2 days intensive programme working on your artistic and creative practice
€300 per place, 3 – 5th February 2017 in Ashford, Wicklow

You know that feeling? You want to develop your creative or artistic practice and give it some structure. But there is never enough time or resources to focus on the business side of your practice. On the other hand it drives you mad that it doesn’t work as it could and should. You are not making enough sales, not getting enough contracts or you simply do not know how to start to build a sustainable creative & artistic career.

We have been there ourselves and know exactly how frustrating it can be. All we can recommend to you is to STOP, take 2.5 days out and join us for our intensive Creative & Artistic Entrepreneurs Training Programme.

You will spend this time working on the business side of your creative & artistic practice. Together with you we will (re)define where you are right now with your creative business and where you want to be. You will formulate goals and steps to take with the primary focus on your specific creative / artistic niche.

What you can expect from the Programme!

  • Assessing the current situation of your creative project or business & identifying the gaps/needs.
  • Looking at your biggest challenges and getting ideas on how to approach them.
  • Defining your offering, your market and resources you need.
  • Preparing your unique story for communication with your audiences or shareholders (i.e. grant authorities) to build a relationship and create engagement.
  • Refining your Value Proposition for your audiences and customers.
  • Refining your Go-to-Market strategy.
  • Financial health check of your idea, project or business.
  • Your operational needs.
  • Setting smart goals for the next year but also for middle and long term.
  • The best Marketing & Sales strategy for your project.

CFCP Online Courses For Creative Entrepreneurs

Building a Strategy For Your Creative Business

February 2017
€250
Online

The courses focuses on starting, growing and sustaining your creative business – planning the strategy for development, growth and the necessary steps you can take to build a sustainable career.  This all takes place in an inspiring, creative and relaxed online environment!

We will spend really exciting time together online between the 1 and 28 February 2017 working on our Creative Business Model Canvas – the visual alternative to the boring business plan which we have developed and based on the business model canvas developed by Alex Osterwalder and the Lean Business Canvas developed by Ash Maurya.

We will answer the 4 questions that every creative business needs to answer: Why – What – How – Who; We will look at your vision for the future and the value propositions that you are basing your creative business around but critically we will ask, who are you? why you do what you do, your motivation and much more…

The delivery will be online but what's different is that we will be there to work in partnership with all of the participants.  We will create outcomes together that we are both responsible for and we will be on-hand to help you via group and one-to-one online meetings, email support, webinars and mentoring. We will run the course over the 4 weeks with a group workshop once per week for 2 hours, a 1 hour group Hangout once per week for any group questions / feedback you might have and a 1 hour one-to-one online session with us each week.  So all in all you will get a minimum of 4 hours working with us per week plus a lot of videos, workbooks and assignments to complete each week that will really move your creative business forward.

The course works just was well for individuals as well as companies, however, because of the nature of the course we can only take 5 people at a time on the journey with us at this stage.  The price of the course will be €250 per person so if more than one person from your organisation would like to take part then you can.

We will also close the registration of interest on Friday, 20 January 2017 at 11.59pm GMT.
