CREATIVE INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION PLAYS A CRUCIAL ROLE IN HELPING MEMBERS BECOME MORE EFFECTIVE AND SUCCESSFUL.
CREATIVE INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION IS JUST THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH WE BUILD UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES, INFORMATION AND SUPPORT.
We also provide unique opportunities via:
Join the movement and community with our virtual meetings, regional meet-ups at members locations around the UK and our annual Business, Training and Networking Conference.
Held in a private and confidential environment, a panel of leading experts, with decades of experience and invaluable knowledge offer priceless feedback and advice to entrepreneurs, businesses and creative professionals to elevate their ideals and concepts to the next level.
Pop-Up Hubs at numerous events offering FREE 30 minute business advice, information and mentoring sessions.
As the trading landscape changes with new challenges around each corner, few things remain constant the passion, dedication, hardworking individuals and companies. These people and businesses continue to provide this industry with great products, brands, education, inspiration and content by building and servicing our ever evolving craft community.
With two decades of direct industry exposure, I have seen numerous changes. There have been significant success stories, and of course, some failed ventures too. I have personally gained so much knowledge, naturally developed a wide array of personal contacts, some interesting experiences and observed businesses developing and moving to reflect trends and consumer demand effectively.
This puts me in a unique position to guide our creative industry association and its membership in a supportive and informative role. I will help you join the dots, help you get from A to B with the right information to hand. Relationships between our members can empower, inspire, inform, connect and grow our membership bonds and the industry as a whole.
Supported by a volunteer board, advisors and helpers, who are members like you, giving their time, expertise, knowledge and experience to ensure that we provide an association that offers value and unrivalled support for members.
Our vison is to make Creative Industry Association the most inclusive association for the global creative, craft and hobby industry.
Joining is not a ‘Eureka’ moment nor does membership give you the keys to instant success. Joining is your ‘Light Bulb’ moment, your statement of intent to develop and nurture your business thoughtfully. To continue to learn and be the best you can be for yourself, your business and your staff.
At your fingertips is the association ready to help you stay informed, be connected, be inspired and be successful.
I look forward to working for you and closely with you to help achieve your goals and welcoming you to…
