Knowing Me, Knowing You: the value of being in a network

Date: 26 January 2011 - Time: 6pm – 9pm

You’re a creative freelancer, organisation or business, may be working in isolation and money’s too tight to mention. Where do you get the thinking space to fill the gaps in your knowledge and challenge your ideas? In this tough climate, we’re told we should join a network to maximise our business opportunities, that membership of a network could cut more ice than the notches on our CV. But the challenge is, what sort of network: professional, social, both? Where? How many?

So you’ve joined one, but is it working for you? Are you working for it? Could you give your networks more energy and time?

Learn more about

  • Other key players in Brighton and across the South East
  • How to evaluate your current network opportunities
  • How to make the most of the networks you already have
  • The skills required to network effectively
  • The benefit of expanding your networks with people who are not just like you
  • How to capitalise on the social networks available

Workshop created and facilitated by Lisa Holloway: Consultant, Director of First Fictions Festival, Chair of Creative Brighton in collaboration with Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce


  • Isabel Ashdown: Author of Glasshopper, Winner of the Mail on Sunday Novel  Competition
  • Emily Baker: Singer/Songwriter, Winner of the Arts Foundation Songwriting Award
