About the tutor

Hi I'm Phil and I have a very strong background in Marketing and over the last 25 years I have grown that to include Training and Facilitation, Business Coaching and using Human Centred Design within Business contexts.  I am particularly interested in supporting and helping entrepreneurs, no matter what age and no matter what business, to realise theirs dreams.  I have done this by learning to combine all my skill sets and offering insights, strategies and tactics to many people I coach.  I have a passion for the arts, being both a guitarist, keyboardist, composer, producer, while also pursuing film and screen work.   During that period I realised that I never stopped to treat myself as a business or consolidate my position.  I always felt Art was Art and Business was Business.  As a result I created this course, to distil my years of experience, for any budding creatives who are interested in taking the next step to develop their business skills or ideas and make it happen for themselves.

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.
