~Getting the best advice on a business level can help those who are already in business or are considering such a bold venture. When the business is in a creative practice it’s important to seek wise guidance which can prevent many from making mistakes early in their careers.

Specialist creative business advisor David Parrish has spoken candidly to a well received audience about his experiences in this area of work. His background consists of setting up and managing arts organisations and he has developed arts organisations using business techniques that fit with their mission and values.

His work has seen him write many applauded books including, 'T-Shirts and Suits: A Guide to the Business of Creativity' and his highly praised workshops have seen him travel the globe from Azerbaijan to Zimbabwe. It’s these workshops that hone in on marketing, strategic planning, finance, business growth, leadership and management.

The people David works collaboratively with  include arts organisations, cultural enterprises and businesses in the creative and digital sector. These  key organisations have given David the confidence, assertiveness and frank honesty about what it is like to combine creativity and business at established conferences across the country and creative industry events world- wide.

On Monday 6th November as part of Creative Lancashire’s ‘Fire Up 1-2-1 Surgeries’ you could be getting expert advice from David Parrish, Boost and Digital Lancashire.

It follows on from the recent CPD  workshops for creative practitioners at Burnley Mechanics.
