Monday 5th 1pm lecture- Dan Berry

My professional leason with people in the industry is something I have little experience of. I have always played down my work rather than promoting myself. This semester however will be different. My research into the industry and how i may function within it will have to be thorough and establishing relationships with those already practicing in the industry is essential.

The lecture itself gave me a harsh reminder of the pitfalls within the creative industry and the work prospects after life at uni.
-where do you want your business to be in 1 year, 3 years, 5 years?
-how much time do you have each week to devote to start running/ starting a business?
-what is your backup plan or alternate means of income if illustrations doesnt meet your financial needs? etc

Hard questions- but the reality of the industry i am heading into. Business knowledge will be tought throughout this semester- this outlining what is intended to be taught.

Interesting website on the business side of the creative industry-
