The Creative Economy is worth £8 million an hour to the UK, according to the Dept. for Culture, Media & Sport, and so this week I am looking at the Industry and opportunities that exist within it.
I’m discussing the Power of the Arts and Creativity for developing and creating opportunities, with Creative Entrepreneur’s, Tru Powell of Aston Performing Arts Academy and Melanie Morrison of Trained to Succeed. Both have not only created success using their own talents, but in have also developed ways to use Creativity to develop the skills of others. They share their stories and words of inspiration.
I also speak to Barry Dudley, Manager of one of Birmingham’s longest established theatre companies, The Crescent Theatre about the opportunities that are currently available there for budding Performers and Actors, as well as Technicians and Volunteers.
This week’s Special Report is focused on the Creative Economy and its input and importance to the UK, and I continue the conversation by looking at the Art of Business based on the Principles Of Sun Tzu to give some Business Insight.
Plus, as usual I’m sharing What’s Hot and What’s Not, this week’s Networking Events and What Happened on this Day in Financial History.
