Next Glug Event - Design Is Business - Thursday 12th July @ Cargo! (Notworking Tickets)

From: Ian H.
Sent on: Thursday, June 14, 2012 12:12 PM

Hello Gluggers,


Here's the details for our Notworking area @Glug on Thursday 12th July.


As always our Notworking area (the bar and outside terrace) will be open all night. We'll have drinks, lovely bits of live art and pop up shops for this event all centered around our overarching theme - Design is Business!


Tickets for this Notworking area priced at the much more affordable £4. Come along enjoy a few drinks, talk to friends and new people. Whatever works for you!





But here's some brief highlights this event (more TBA):


Artful Consulting - Creative Business Clinic

Pete Bowker and his wonderful team of Creative Business consultants will have an area outside. A sort of "drop in" Creative Business Clinic where you can come and talk to his team about any issues, problems you as a small business are suffering.

The team are happy to offer free and impartial advice on the night and give you some valuable insights into how to overcome any issues you are facing.


Artful Clients Include: Studio Output, The Found Collective, NotToScale, Marshmallow Laser Feast


"There are lots of boring business consultants out there, but very few that get the Creative Sector like Artful!"


Portfolio Crit - Ask the experts!

We're assembling a team of design and creative experts to talk through your portfolios. The work itself, but also the method you present this in. How can you come accross better and what do they look for from creative presentations?

Details of experts TBA here in the next few weeks
