Could you do with a sounding board?
If you run your own small to small-ish creative business and could do with some outside help working through your strategic challenges, then you are the kind of person I'm in business to help.
I am offering a limited number of free 45 minute business strategy consultations, held at a private room in the wonderful Kensington Arms pub, Cotham, Bristol on Tuesday 4th October 2016.
I can't promise that I can solve all your problems in 45 minutes (I think I may fall foul of the ASA if I make that claim!), but at the very least I'd aim to give you some ideas on how to move things forward in a positive fashion. To give you a bit more of an idea of what I do, you might want to take a look at this short film.
Just so there are no misunderstandings, I'm not offering these free sessions as an act of pure altruism. Even though I already work with over a dozen creative businesses, I've got space for a handful of new clients. So I will spend 5-10 minutes of the session telling you a little about what I do (strategy, coaching and mentoring), how I work and what it costs. There is, of course, no obligation to become a paying client. If I don't think I can help you, I will do my best to point you in the direction of someone who may be a better fit.
If this sounds of interest, please read the FAQs below before booking:
Are the sessions confidential?
Absolutely. Everything you tell me stays within the four walls of The Kensington. I'd even be happy to sign an NDA beforehand if you have any concerns.
How many people can attend each session?
No more than three people per session please. When you book, just order one ticket, even if more than one person is attending.
I'm a freelancer not an agency. Can I still book a session?
In a word, yes!
How do I arrange the time of the session?
Once you've booked a ticket I will be in touch with a suggested time slot.
I'd like to book a session but: can't make 4th October or you're fully booked
Don't worry. Assuming there is sufficient interest, I'm planning to hold these free consultation sessions every couple of months. So please email me and I can put your name down for the next one. I'll then be in touch with the next date/time ASAP.
What are my transport/parking options?
There is metered on street parking adjacent to the Kensington Arms. Redland train station is a short walk (less than 5 mins).
Can I contact you with any questions before booking?
Of course. I'd be delighted to hear from you. Please email me via my website and I will be in touch.
Food / refreshments?
...are on me. The Kensington serves great coffee and I'd definitely recommend their bacon sarnies!
