Survive and Thrive 2012

Calling all creative minds! Are you a budding artist, freelance graphic designer, or one of the many important contributors to New Zealand’s creative economy?

Survive & Thrive is Auckland’s smartest thinking one-day event for innovative, creative people. With a rich mix of coaching sessions, practical workshops, inspiring world-class speakers and invaluable networking opportunities, Survive & Thrive 2012 is a not to be missed professional and enterprise development event for the creative sector.

We don’t often place creativity and business in the same basket. Stereotypically, choosing a career path of creativity was generally associated with overall financial struggle and lower job security, while all the business jargon was left to men in suits and ties.

Survive and Thrive aims to sharpen you up on the necessary business skills and mind sets that are required for all creative practitioners in today’s competitive global environment. What’s the point in having all that creative talent if you can’t effectively share it with the wider world in the long run?

The conference covers four strands, including making it overseas; anchoring foundations in New Zealand; sustainable practice; and viability tools and tips. You can weave your way through the programme and customise your day to meet your needs – whether you're a start-up or already well on your way.

Survive and Thrive 2012 will be held at the University of Auckland Business School on July 5 and is open to both students and non-students.
