About this Event

The session will walk you through the world of self-employment with a focus on those in a creative industry. Workshop leader Danielle will talk you through managing your money, basic bookkeeping, taxes and HMRC. She will look at how to grow and maintain your business through finance and admin, as well as show you how to prioritise your workload and manage your time.

With plenty of breaks and hands-on tasks, this masterclass is aimed at those who are newly stepping into self employment, those who aren't confident with finance and admin or those who just feel they need a refresh on the topics.

Please bring along a pen and paper and a cup of tea!
