This month we are very happy that Colin Crooks, entrepreneur and founder/CEO of Lambeth’s pioneering enterprise supporters Tree Shepherd, will be with us for a question and answer session on the next steps in building your business.
Making a successful, sustainable business out of making can mean wearing many different hats. It feels as if you need to be designer-and-creator-in-chief, head of marketing, chief strategist, customer relations manager and accountant simultaneously! To maximise your time for the creative work it’s wise to get all the help you can with the business side of things.
Join us at Makers’ Club and make the most of Colin’s business expertise. Whether your questions are about networking, promotion and marketing, mentoring, where to find grants, or the nuts and bolts of business such as tax and business registration Colin has the experience to help.
