- Each session is based around a theme, working to a business plan template, and facilitated by an experience creative industries business specialist;
- Time is spent on learning about and discussing the principles behind each theme, and on the practical completion of that section of the plan template;
- Groups learn to support each other and collaborate in a safe and confidential environment, and participate in a private Facebook Group for their own cohort during and after the sessions;
- Everyone works towards the same goal of a draft/complete business or strategic plan by the end of the weekend.
