If you’re a small business owner in the creative or design sphere, from an interiors expert to a product designer or shop owner, then the Creative Business Exchange Workshop could help you take things to the next level.
Following on from the successful Durban workshop, the Cape Town instalment will be held on 24 April at Decorex Cape Town. Presented by leading local surface specialists Caesarstone, the workshop will be led by creative business development coach Nadia van der Mescht, surface design expert Heather Moore of Skinny la Minx and South African furniture design maven Haldane Martin – an impressive trinity of talent indeed!
This is your chance to hear how to do it from the experts, your chance to glean the information you need to move your business forward and your chance to take things up a notch on a creative, marketing or organisational level.
