SELECT ALL: NETWORKING
At Select All you'll find tea, coffee, support on tap and the chance to get to know and learn from you own creative community.
As well as a warm, welcoming space to mingle, you are encouraged to bring your laptop (or just whip out your phone!) and ask each other for opinions or support for your work. Starting and running a business can be an isolating experience so here here is the opportunity to finally bounce those new ideas around!
Each meet up will have a different guest expert who you can have a short one-to-one conversation with about your work. A copywriter about your tone of voice, a photographer about your visuals, a shop-owner about wholesale, or a social media manager about building your audience. Someone who knows what it's like to build a creative business for yourself.
Groups are always kept small so the vibe stays intimate and the pace stays gentle. Everyone will have a chance to be heard.
Sign up to my seasonal letters to find out when meet up dates are released. I can't wait to meet you!
PAST MEET UPS
BELTAIN, APRIL, 2019
Cassandra is a film photographer turned private photo editor and visual content manager to wedding photographers from around the world. She loves all things Lightroom and has a black belt in Photoshop (Adobe-certified!).
Specialising in film emulation, Cassandra helps her clients to find and stay true to their unique visual style by creating bespoke editing presets. Over the past year, she has helped her clients get their work published and her own work has been featured in The Guardian.
Before life as a printmaker and cyclical living mentor, Jen worked as a freelance copywriter, writing articles, site copy, and producing social content for a range of clients from kids’ magazines, to travel blogs, to consultancies, as well as running her own creative blogs.
Through this experience and building a small business herself, Jen knows how to hone a clear tone of voice across platforms, and the importance of keeping focus on your brand message.
We started with introductions from Cass and Jen, a little overview of who is in the room, and what we'll be working on together.
Then, cuppas in hand, pastry crumbs on chins, we mingled about saying hello to each other, swapping business cards and links, and making connections.
Next we broke into small groups around tables to chat content, review each other's photography and writing, and gather and offer supportive feedback. Cass and I held our free 1-2-1s in this time, casting a professional eye over attendee's content and answering any niggling questions about future plans.
