This creative consulting and development company is specifically designed to bridge the gap between the creative soul and business professional, resulting in an artistic entrepreneur fully equipped to take on their industry and make their dream a reality.
"An excellent course for anyone trying to make a living as a creative artist. Makes you confront the reality that the 'business' side of things won't look after itself. If you're competing with others, you need to give yourself an edge. Christina helps you do that. And the first part of that 'edge' is the knowledge of who you are, and what you're doing. She makes you realise that if you don't 'define' yourself then it's really hard for the people who might give you work to know why they should. The course gave me both practical advice, and empathetic encouragement and support. And the wake-up call I needed to both take myself seriously, and to take responsibility for my own creative future. She's as much a mirror as she is a mentor – and both services are invaluable in a competitive creative world. Definitely money well spent." ~Rohan Candappa, Writer/Performer
"Christina's Entrepreneurial Artist workshop was fantastic at helping me clarify my vision for my career and learn communication tools I can put into practice. After taking part last weekend, I have recommended the course to two friends already! It would be great to learn these business skills before entering the industry and would highly urge drama/film schools to add this workshop to their curriculum." ~Leona Allen, Actor/Writer
"Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful Project Skills Lab. I think it's been one of our best and has been of real benefit to the students! Definitely information they all needed to hear." ~Kate Shenton, Raindance Postgraduate MA
I have taken many courses over the last year in order to improve the business side of being an artist, but I found Christina's course the most useful by far because I came away with a practical To Do list of things I could implement straight away. I also got insight into the way I currently market my work on the internet/social media, and ways to focus in order to start earning a living. ~Rhiannon Brace, Choreographer/Performance Artist
