About this Event

Did you recently graduate from a creative degree? Are you looking for ways to stand out in a highly competitive market? Do you feel like a jack of all trades but a master of none? Have you finished university feeling like you don't have a specific focus? Have you got an idea for a passion project or side hustle, but not sure where to start?

Join our 'MORE THAN A GRAD' programme to learn everything you need to grow, develop and launch a passion project to help you cut through the increasingly competitive job market. This is a 4 week virtual course of webinars that will run between the 3rd of August to the 28th of August.

Led by the founder and author of F*ck Being Humble, Stefanie Sword-Williams will host a weekly workshop sharing her experience of starting her own passion project, how to build out your own idea, how to create a distinctive proposition and how to build a marketing and a launch plan. In two years of running F*ck Being Humble as a passion project, Stef has secured a book deal, been named Forbes 30 Under 30 in Europe 2020, built a list of global clients and delivered workshops to thousands of people around the world.
