In just a few weeks time Australia’s best boutique gift, home, kids and lifestyle trade fair, Life Instyle opens at the Royal Exhibition Building. As well as providing a showcase for over 350 lifestyle designer brands from Australia and the world, LifeInstyle also offers business workshops within the trade show. I’m delighted to be part of the Conversation Series for the event (because you know how much I love a good chat!)
Join me for one (or all!) of my workshops created especially for design driven, retail business. We’ll explore the digital marketing landscape and how to make the most of it for your business in the ‘Life On Other Planets‘ workshop. We’ll get to business planning and productivity in the lead up to Christmas in ‘Business Blast Off‘. And finally we’ll land on ‘Planet Instagram‘ to learn how to really get the most out of the fast growing social media platform for visually driven brands.
Details and booking links are below.
