‘How to Build a Brand’ retreat
13th - 15th September 2019
Forest Row, East Sussex
An immersive weekend creative business retreat to help you build a meaningful brand. Designed not only for you to learn and find inspiration, but to give you that much-needed time to work on developing your business. Within a beautiful environment and surrounded by a group of like-minded individuals, you’ll come away with a clear grasp on what your business is, who it’s for and how to represent that in everything you do.
With inspiring talks and workshops led by successful creative independent business owners, Weekend:IN's 'How to Build a Brand’ retreat will give you that time and motivation to ensure each choice in your business is intentional and purposeful for your brand.
Who is it for?
Whether you're already running a small business full-time, have a side hustle you’d like to build into the everyday, or have a bright idea for a business in the future, you will benefit from taking intentional steps to build your brand. Whether you have an online business, you’re looking to turn your blog into a profitable business or run a physical shop, your brand is ultra-important to ensuring your business can grow.
Working with creative businesses in our day to day work, we have found that a lot of new businesses have a clear idea of what they will be offering, but a less clear idea of who their product is for, what their brand values really are and how their business should look visually - these are just a few of the elements that help to build a strong brand.
We developed the ‘How to Build a Brand’ event at the beginning of 2018 to offer a service to newer businesses that needed help refining who they are and what they do. After running five successful events across the country in 2018, we decided that those business owners not only need the knowledge, but also the space and time to action those ideas.
Creating the ‘How to Build a Brand’ creative business retreat combines the workshops and knowledge from the previous events but with extra dedicated time to start working practically on ideas. One to ones with experts will also help business owners take a deep-end dive into their businesses. As well as this, the added time and communal space will form deeper relationships with the other like-minded business owners attending the event.
