Hi there creatives! Are you having a De Niro moment wondering if we're, in fact, talking to you? It depends. Do you make something with your mind, voice, hands, or body? If the answer is yes, then we're talking to you. Creative is a pretty broad term - you could create apps, concepts, films, compositions, words, websites, songs, dance numbers, or pies (among other things, naturally we didn't include everything here, but you get the idea). Point is, you're trying to get paid for your craft, right? Having trouble thinking of yourself as a "business owner"?
Well then...check out Creatives Meet Business, a FREE event series that helps you transition from artist to creative entrepreneur. How do we do it? By creating an intimate set-up of roundtable discussions for you to get to know Austin's top professionals in the fields supporting the creative industry. Join us Tuesday, December 6th for the PR Edition, hosted by lookthinkmake and engage with a diverse group of PR professionals and a journalist and get the skinny on all things PR.
Are you struggling with telling your story and getting the press to listen? Do you keep hearing about "influencers" and wonder how you can reach them? Do you lie awake at night and think about which media outlet is the best fit for you? Well, then join us on December 6th to talk through all things PR: from honing your story to meeting the media to understanding timelines and much much more.
Featuring roundtable discussions with:
Kristen Chin, POM PR // Timelines - Why They Matter and How to Plan One
Casey Miller, lookthinkmake // Finding Your Story - How Do I Hone My Story To Make It Compelling?
Jennifer Sinski, Giant Noise // The Influence of Influencers in PR
Victoria Villarreal, Bread & Butter PR // Exploring The Media Landscape and Finding My (Media) Home
Brandon Watson, The Austin Chronicle // The Media & Me - How to Meet (and Then Talk) to Them
David Wyatt, Wyatt Brand // It’s Not Just an Event - It’s Part of My PR Strategy
Chat with each pro for 15 minutes before they rotate to the next table - speed dating style - all while getting acquainted with your tablemates that span the entire spectrum of the creative industries in Austin. Don't know what we mean by "speed dating style?" No problem! You stay planted, so pick a table of strangers (aka - friends you haven't met yet) and settle in for the ride. Every 15 minutes, one of the amazing folks listed above will drop some knowledge at your table (and please feel free to ask questions, engage and ENJOY). Each one of them will be hosting a UNIQUE discussion, so no two speakers (or conversations) are alike.
Drinks and snacks are provided.
Three (3) attendees will walk away with a 6 month subscription to Lynda.com. Already thinking of all the amazing courses you could take? That's the spirit! Come to the event and see how you could be one of the lucky three.
We can't wait to see you!
