Northumberland - CONNECT: Powerful Communication & defining your why
As professionals or freelancers - our roles, projects and portfolio of work can be so varied and so diverse; like a beautiful pick and mix - but it can be difficult to know where to start when youre in a situation and have to tell someone else what you do and coherently explain the breadth. And yet, it's an important part of your personal brand, funding applications, job applications, marketing yourself, your social media, networking, project pitching etc.
This participatory Zoom session led by theatre, drama and creative learning charity, Mortal Fools will focus on developing your elevator pitch - it will get you thinking about who you are, what you do, your personal values, what you love about what you do and how to effectively communicate that in a few lines.
During this session, you will start to formulate a clearer articulation of your purpose within your work the WHY you do what you do and passion for your work. You will consider WHY, HOW and WHAT your professional work is and how to use this structure to inform your personal communication strategy as a freelancer/professional. Mortal Fools will walk you through some practical tools to develop your confidence in self-promotion - including delivering your elevator pitch in a safe space with others. There will also be time for collective discussion about why it's sometimes hard to effectively communicate what we do and the impact of the use of language.
Session is £8 per person and is open to freelancers living and/or working in Northumberland.
This session is part of Creative Catalyst Northumberland; a professional development training programme for Northumberland creative organisations and freelancers to encourage listening, learning, personal growth, change and allyship.
Creative Catalyst Northumberland is led on by Mortal Fools and supported by Northumberland NCC, Queens Hall, Hexham and The Maltings, Berwick.
