What does it take to succeed online? The Creative Events Company did their best to answer this question in their May 27th event “Creative Annual Conference” in Edinburgh, Scotland. Speakers, networking, and workshops were enjoyed by all.
There is no shortage of blogs or bloggers, influencers or online businesses. Yet creating a successful one is a much greater challenge. The good news is that there are actions that can be taken to increase the chances of making a breakthrough in the creative industry and make money whilst having fun doing the job you love. There is no better way to learn how than to learn from those who have actually achieved in their fields.
"Creative Events Company “Creative Conference” brings brands and creatives together: Putting leading bloggers and creators in front of those who want to learn their tips and tricks in a face-to-face environment.
The fifth Creative Events networking event was held on May 27th and was even more successful than the first, in the eyes of the many very happy attendees. Excitement over our next event is already building.
“We know that these events will get many creatives on a more productive path,” commented a spokesperson from Creative Events. “Breaking through with a new blog, account or project can often feel daunting in an industry that is not yet fully recognised for its potential. Yet once these tips are applied, we have found that real doors can open and often do for our guests.”
Highlights of the “Creative Annual Conference” speakers included Leah Hutcheon, Michael Ulloa, Troycy, Elliot Reeves, Jojo Fraser, Stewart Fenwick, Euan Patterson, Gemma Armit, Ian LeBruce, Pinky Ghadiali, Lisa Macareiu and many others. Including appearances from Scottish Autism representatives, who we hope to work with again in the near future.
“The panels are fantastic, they are short, sweet and very informative. There’s a great vibe and so many different people who I know I’ll be for sure meeting in the next coming months, fab!” - Sarah T (Guest attending)
