Individual creative practitioners, not-for-profits and even larger arts organisations sometimes need personalised guidance about their creative business and its trajectory. Creative Plus Business first started offering mentoring and business coaching programs in 2011, and now provides a range of services to help those in the creative industries find their way through the business of creativity.
For individuals, not-for-profits and small businesses we provide three programs:
CHAT: A casual one-off session of coaching about any creative business related topics;
GROW: A 6-session series of meetings that help practitioners and businesses stay on track and remain focused and accountable through periods of growth or development;
PLAN: A day of brainstorming around ideas, strategies and directions – best used by groups or individuals who are seeking an intensive business planning session to help them navigate the trickier aspects of growing their creative business or organisation.
For larger organisations we have created the Coaching Congaline, a program designed to help creative and arts-based organisations develop an internal peer-to-peer coaching program. The purpose is to give an introduction of the principals of coaching, and provide practical tips and exercises for participants to undertake in their own organisations.
We have also created bespoke mentoring programs for clients such as the City of Sydney, Arts North West, Auburn Council, the National Associatio for the Visual Arts, NIDA and NSW Office of the Small Business Commissioner
Monica has also created programs for larger organisations through her work as the NSW Creative Industries Business Advisor. Mentoring and sponsorship programs were also the subject of Monica’s thesis as part of her post-graduate Masters in Screen Arts and Business at the Australian Film Television and Radio School.
