Tried and Tested Knowledge
I’ve drawn the content for Tiny Books from over a decade of working with creative businesses of all sizes. My material is tried and tested, through a combination of: consultancy, working with businesses in the creative industries; education, at The Belfast School of Art; and, finally, through material I delivered as a lead trainer on a number of creative startup programmes pioneered by the UK innovation charity, Nesta.
Through this work I have mentored a generation of designers, helping them develop the critical business skills required to succeed and thrive.
