Presenters

This edition of Craft+Work will feature four invited presenters who have agreed to come along and share their stories and insights. Our lineup is 3/4 complete, and we'll publish full details soon.

In the meantime, here's a teaser of who'll be joining us:

  • A co-founder who built one of the most world-renowned ecommerce agencies, grew the team to 100+, worked with international brands, and exited a decade later
  • A solo entrepreneur who has spent the last decade supporting thousands of entrepreneurial professionals as a headhunter, talent advisor and coach
  • An independent designer, creative director, author, and typography expert known for multiple successful side projects as well as stints at global tech brands

Themes

The day will be curated around themes highly relevant to anyone running or thinking about starting a creative or digital business. We'll likely cover many of the following areas but may venture into unknown territories, but that's part of the fun.

Branding

How can we leverage the power of branding to differentiate our businesses and leave a lasting impression on our clients and customers?

Clients & Customers

What strategies can we use to attract, retain and delight our clients and customers?

Leadership

How can we become better leaders and help nurture creativity, foster innovation, and guide our teams to unprecedented success?

Marketing

How do we make sense of competing marketing strategies and tactics to produce campaigns that really resonate with our clients and customers?

Positioning

How do we position our businesses to gain a competitive edge and connect with our ideal clients and customers?

Pricing

From double your rate Fridays to goldilocks pricing and beyond. There are so many ways to price your products and services, but what really works? Let’s find out together.

Remote Work

Is remote work a threat to team culture, is it a fad, will we prosper or suffer from a lack of in-person connections? Remote work appears to be here to stay so how do we make it work?

Team Building

How can we empower teams to drive creativity, collaborate effectively, and create impactful and profitable work?

Technology

How do we leverage advances in technology like AI to help, not hinder, our businesses?


Location

We're back at the Tower Hill citizenM once again. Situated a literal minute's walk from Tower Hill Underground station, it's easy to get to from all parts of the capital.

We'll be making use of Meeting Room 9. Don't be fooled (like us); it's actually meeting rooms four and five put together! It is a great meeting space, and there are plenty of breakout areas for our roundtable discussions.
