Many creative businesses are very small. How do you grow a creative one-person business? At this event, organised by The Design Trust, three experts will talk and discuss business growth models and income streams to take your business beyond making and designing your own products. Creative entrepreneur and educator Paul Sturrock will give an introduction to creative business models, to grow your business and possibly to attract investors. Business adviser, coach and mentor Yvonne Fuchs will talk specifically about branding, licensing and royalties. She will explain how they work, with the use of many case studies from her 20 year career. Successful designer Ella Doran will be sharing her own story of how she has grown her own business over the last 20 years. After these individual talks there will be a panel discussion and Q&A chaired by Patricia van den Akker, Director of The Design Trust. This event is aimed at design and craft businesses with a minimum turnover of £50,000, and is not suitable for start-ups. For more information and to book your free place please see:
