With Isa Seminega

23rd April - 25th April

Take the stress out of creating your business plan with our step by step business planning workshop. Over three days, Isa Seminega, author of The Creative Entrepreneur, will take you through creating a roadmap for starting your creative business and growing it into a thriving profitable venture.

You will learn how to build a strong foundation and develop a profitable business model. Plan the direction of your business and build your strategy. Clarify your vision and create a path to make it happen. You’ll cover everything from pricing your work to creating a marketing strategy that builds growth including ideas to improve revenue and profits. By the end of the workshop you will leave with your completed business plan, an action plan to put your business strategy into practice, confidence in your idea and the motivation to achieve your goals.

All of our bedrooms here at Clayhill are en-suite so you will have your own private space to retreat to and relax in after spending your day in the meditative space of the Studio. We provide you with your own towels and bathroom products for use throughout your stay and you can enjoy the extensive grounds well into the evening.

If you do choose to stay with us a bespoke evening meal as well as breakfast and lunch will also be provided.

We have also set up a payment plan, so that you can spread the cost of the sessions over the next 4 months. You will find the option for doing this as you enter the checkout page.
