As a creative, does running a business disrupt your creative flow? In a world of screen fatigue, push notifications and access on demand, learn how you can better manage tasks in your creative business to allow to focus on your creative process.

Delivered by Jessica Armstrong, Project Manager and Creative Producer, this session will explore approaches to organising yourself, your tasks, your stakeholders and your creative world.

Taking place on Zoom Meetings, there will be opportunity for discussion, activities away from the screen and Q+A. Join this interactive session and learn the processes and skills which bring you the space and time to be creative!

What will be covered?

  • Build awareness of the habits that keep you busy but not productive
  • Learn about frameworks that will help you decide and prioritise your tasks
  • Review apps and offline methods that can support you and your activity to better schedule and communicate around your priorities, activities and deadlines

    Learning Outcomes

    You'll leave the session able to: 

    • Identify your working habits and how to maximise them into productive AND creative flow  

    • Approach your creative business (and all the tasks that go with it) with intention

    Who are your hosts?
