Thank you all for such a well organised and caring and inspiring event (Athena Project, Screenworks). What a great group of mentors and what an amazing and entertaining Creative Leader (and Starstruck Fan of course) you found in Monica. I may have taken more notes than the participants! – Gillian Armstrong, director
Creative practitioners who want to work for themselves need tailored business training and support in order to make their career goals a reality. Sadly, business skills are often not a priority in a creative person’s education, and they can find themselves self-employed with no idea of what to do. Creative Plus Business can help – and has been helping for twenty years.
Since 1996, Monica Davidson of Creative Plus Business has provided educational programs, in-house consultation and bespoke mentoring packages to universities, councils, creative institutions and business support organisations around Australia.
All of our programs and packages are tailored specifically to the needs of self-employed practitioners from the creative industries, at any level of experience, and the organisations that support and train them. As industry specialists, we can focus on the needs of creative stakeholders and deliver a range of services to help them better their business skills.
Workshops and Presentations: We deliver education about business for the general creative public, specialist seminars and master classes for in-house delivery, educational programs for universities and more.
Keynotes, Conferences and Panels: Monica is frequently invited to speak at conferences and provide her expertise to panels, symposiums, events and the media.
