In May 2014 the Creative Industries Innovation Centre (CIIC) provided free individual one–hour business consultations for creative business people in our region.
The CIIC Biztro service offered sole traders, start-ups and small businesses in any creative industry the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and experience of Business Adviser David Sharpe.
David has a strong background in financial management and developing business strategies for creative companies, as part of 12 years experience in the arts and screen industries.
Aspects that were discussed in the 'All-you-can-digest business advice in 60 minutes' were starting a business, strategic planning, finances, human resources, marketing and intellectual property.
The CIIC was an initiative of the Australian Government’s Enterprise Connect program and was delivered nationally to support the business of creative enterprise. The organisation worked with over 1,500 creative enterprises from 2009 to 2014.
