Creative businesses in the Tweed have the chance to hear from one of the industry’s most dynamic and respected figures next month as part of the NSW Government’s ‘Back to Business Week’ event series.
Monica Davidson from the award-winning Creative plus Business will share her ‘Top Ten Tips for Creative Business Success’ at a workshop in Murwillumbah on Saturday 4 March.
The workshop will focus on the essential things needed to run a freelance and/or creative business. The advice is relevant to many professions including; filmmaker, writer, designer, visual artist, musician, composer, dancer or performer.
Mayor of Tweed, Councillor Katie Milne, said the workshop is an opportunity for anyone starting out, or already running a creative, to get some help to grow their business.
“Monica Davidson is one of the most respected speakers in her field,” she said.
“It’s a great coup to have her come to work with Tweed businesses and I hope our local creatives take advantage of the opportunity.
“There is a strong community of talented creative people in the Tweed that we want to support through Council’s Economic Development Strategy and the ‘Creative Cauldron’ initiative.”
