Build your Confidence – 11 Dec, London

Even the most positive, go-getting people sometimes experience a dip in confidence – especially when they’ve experienced a set back or are facing a particularly daunting challenge. In this one-day workshop, we’ll help you develop and maintain confidence whatever the circumstance.

TUC’s Young Workers’ Mont

In conjunction with the TUC’s Young Workers’ Month, this free workshop is aimed at those aged 30 and under.

How to drive traffic to your website – 23 Nov, London

This one-day workshop quickly goes beyond the usual focus on search engines (though they are still covered) to understand the growing importance of social optimisation…creating stories and links that stand the best chance of being shared through social channels to build your online presence.

For Android and iPhone

This one-day workshop will help you unlock the potential of your mobile device (android or iPhone/iPad) as a powerful tool for planning and creating high quality video.

Marketing your work – 16 Nov, Bristol

To build a successful freelance career, you need the ability to get what you do under the right people’s noses and present your work in the best possible light. This course will help you gain a clearer understanding of marketing and help you develop your marketing skills.

Body Language – 25 Oct, London

Getting your message across and making the right impression relies on both what you say and how you say it. In this one-day workshop, you will learn how thoughts, intentions and feelings are expressed through physical behaviours and how to ensure that the non-verbal messages you convey create the right impact.

Blogging for Creative Freelances – 13 Oct, Manchester

Everybody tells you that you must have a website and you must have a blog but nobody tells you how – or why. In this workshop you will learn the key steps to creating your blog but, more importantly, what you can use one for and how it will become an important part of your creative work.

That’s true whether you’re a writer, journalist, musician or actor: you are already creating work that blogs can showcase and you will benefit from reaching audiences through a well constructed, targeted blog. This workshop will tell you how.

Effective Communication – 12 Oct, Manchester

From convincing someone to commission your work to asking for better terms and conditions, this workshop will help you develop your communication skills so that you achieve better and more consistent results.

Get Hired – 6 October, London

This one-day workshop is designed to give practical advice and support to help you improve how you demonstrate your many skills and abilities to potential clients, through both what you say and how you say it.

Finance for Freelances – 27 Sept, London

There are some big changes coming up in the way freelance professionals will deal with the tax office. This workshop aims to get you into the right financial habits before the changes come. We’ll also explain why there was such a row after the recent budget.
