“I design workshops that inspire and empower creatives. They gain valuable new skills and inventive ideas.” Jean Kropper
If you are running an ad agency or design studio, you are always looking for new ways to start conversations with clients and potential clients as part of drumming up work. Unusual ideas and inventive promotions are great door openers that can spark new projects.
Secondly, it is important to engage, inspire and retain your own creative staff. Workshops add to their skills and lets them know you value them. I have developed a series of workshops to do just this.
