If you’re in London you may like to bookmark the latest Creative Business Club event from CIDA, on 14th November. I’ve blogged about the Creative Business Club before – I’ve always found it an inspiring evening and a good opportunity to meet interesting creative professionals.
This time the theme is Making Workspace Work, looking at the effect of your physical environment on your business and your creativity. This is a topic I’ve previously looked at on this blog, when I considered The Thinkubator and Other Creative Environments. I’ve also written about the Creative Space Agency who are among the speakers, and who are building their business on a brilliantly simple idea about creative use of space in London.
Making Workspace Work
The Creative Business Club offers knowledge through networking and the perfect opportunity to get together with other creative professionals. Each event features lively panel discussions with leading experts followed by networking and drinks.
When: Wednesday 14 Nov, 6 â€“ 9pm
Where: Barbican Centre (Barbican)
Who: Freelancers, businesses and cultural organisations
Facilitator: Lucy Kyle, CIDAâ€™s Creative Industries Business Adviser
Has your business outgrown your home, or are you renting a space that just isnâ€™t working for you? The next Creative Business Club â€“ Making Workspace Work â€“ explores how to find a space that will help your business grow. Having a professional address and a meeting room for clients are just some of the benefits, but the right space can also help you build a profitable referral network and inspire creativity.
The expert panel including Cani Ash – Founding Partner Ash Sakula Architects, John Burton – Director of the Creative Space Agency, Paul Allen, journalist and author of the Ethical Business Book and Helen Johannessen of Yoyo Ceramics will discuss what to consider when selecting a workspace, where to look and how your physical environment can affect your profile, productivity and creativity.
Join us afterwards for drinks and a chance to chat to exhibitors who will be on hand to provide expert advice on finding the right creative space for you.
Making Workspace Work is supported by the Creative Space Agency
