Nov 15, 7pm, 2017 Personal Brand

With our own portfolios filled with diverse work, how can we best brand and market ourselves? How can we best leverage social and the changing media landscape to our advantage?

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. We believe we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Initially we loved the idea of causal salon nights to collaborate, meet and share with other creative ladies. So we reached out to Jessica Walsh to bring Ladies, Wine & Design to Newcastle upon Tyne.
