Reach customers, retailers, suppliers & investors
Creative businesses often struggle to use the correct lingo when speaking to influencers in their businesses success. I know that when I started my business I wanted to focus on the products and neglected delivering content that spoke to my audience (especially when it came to speaking to retailers, bankers and investors). You need to tweak your content so that it appeals to them and immediatly makes it apparent that your offeerings will be of benefit to them.
What You'll Learn
- How to develop marketing materials that captivate your ideal customers.
- How to develop line sheets and bundles for selling your products to retailers
- How to pitch your business and products to investors.

3. Career Talks & Workshops
Careers in Art & Design
Every year I speak to thousands of young people in the Irish Times Higher Options event in the RDS Dublin. I guide them through the process of choosing their creative career and what to expect when pursuing a career in Design or Art. I offer this Career Talk to schools aloowing students ask me questions and get professional insights in to the Art and Design Sector in Ireland and overseas. I also offer workshops for up to 50 students to help them decide on their career options through my worksheets and activity based sessions.
Helping young people understand creative career options
A very important step I took as a teenager was speaking to professionals before deciding to do product design. This really helped me to pick a course that aligned with my passions and allowed me to excel in my career. I will help students in your school meet professionals relevant to their career path; designers, artist, film-makers…etc. I really enjoy sharing my experiences with young people and have been contacted by college graduates who thanked me for the advice I gave them at age 16.
Presentations, Q&As and Action Packed Workshops
I am a professional designer so I like to present my work that way. I use creative approaches to help young people grasp the challenges that lie ahead of them and start to address complex questions early. I walk them through the career planning process guiding them on developing goals so that they achieve their dream career.
Career Talks are 1 hour in duration and I can travel to schools across Ireland. The Fee is €150 and I can speak to an unlimited quantity of supervised students.
Career Workshops are 2 Hours in duration and I can travel to schools across Ireland. I provide all of the materials and print outs for the workshop.
