Freelancing within the Arts
Speaker 1 : Collar and Tie
C&T inspire, educate and empower the next generation of global literate citizens. In schools, universities, theatres and communities across the world, we turn learners into independent and imaginative thinkers, connecting the local with the global. We transform classrooms, public spaces and arts venues into settings fit for the digital revolution.
Speaker 2 : Sian Conway
Sian is the Marketing Manager at Ormerod Rutter Chartered Accountants and Theataccounts, a specialist accountancy practice for the entertainment industry.
She has worked as a business coach and marketing consultant for a range of start-ups (Leicester University start-ups) and established brands and also runs her own businesses too.
Theataccounts work exclusively with clients in the entertainment industry, priding themselves on making tax simple for their clients and breaking the accountancy mould, as a lively, modern brand. They have grown rapidly over the past few years, mostly through Twitter and social media, and now look after some big clients around the country, include most of the major West End shows.
The events will provide an opportunity for students, entrepreneurs, managers and business owners in the region to network and gain knowledge on starting and running a business. Therefore we expect you to come casual and expect to talk to everyone you meet, and of course ask questions. The talks are for 20 minutes with 10 minutes Q&A, this keeps the event highly engaged and ensures a positive experience.
Pizza and other refreshments will be available during this event.
