Creative Business Planning
Design Factory Thrive
This workshop takes place at the Portfolio Innovation Centre, Northampton This popular workshop will explore different ways of planning ahead, and will help you decide whether a formal business plan is right for you, or whether a more creative and flexible approach to planning will work best. You will get a workpack which will help you devise a personal approach to planning that really suits you and your creative practice. The workshop is designed for people at all career stages – the thinking and discussion will work for you regardless of whether you are a start up or a mature business. You will be encouraged to think both strategically and tactically – where do you want to be in 3-5 years – and what actions do you need to start taking now in order to get there? You will come away with a much clearer idea of where you are heading, a personal action plan with clear goals and milestones, and a visual timeline. Facilitator: Pete Mosley
