Building a professional brand for creatives
7, 14 and 21 Apr 2020
In the digital age it is no longer important who and what you know, but who knows what you know. The way things are right now, we do not have much control over what will happen next, but we can still learn new skills and work on our social media presence.
Our Creative Connector is moving online this April. In the series of three Tuesday e-workshops we will take a closer look at how we can build a professional brand as creatives without spending most of our time on social networks; together with mentor Jasna Klemenc Puntar we will explore the toolkits for successful branding and analyse good practices in Slovenia and abroad.
To attend the workshop you have to register at www.czk.si – log in with your username and click “I want to register for the event”. When you have registered you will receive a worksheet, which you can complete before the workshop, and a link to the lecture website. E-workshops will take place online and can be attended live:
