As a creative person your ideas are your most valuable asset. Communicating your ideas through your artwork is one thing, but how do we take a concept for a creative business and explain it to the bean counters? This webinar is designed by a career artist (who also has an MBA) to draw upon your skills as a creative and make them work to the requirements of a structured business plan. The 75 minute session delivered by Michael Martyn, starts from the artist's perspective and moves through to the basics of creating a business plan.
