Masterclass in Organizing for Creative People

Sheila Chandra - Thursday, November 09, 2017

In August Stik and I gave a masterclass to workshop creative people's career issues at Foyles' flagship store in London. It was loosely based around my book 'Organizing for Creative People' which was out in May.

Some lovely people came along and bravely ventured their questions. Stik and I then gave our advice, which was for everyone in the room to learn from. But I've also uploaded the audio to my new Youtube channel, so that artists that couldn't be there can learn from it too!

Listen to the talk here.
