10 AM - 11:30 AM : Lola, One Girl Band  - Finding your why and being 100% you

We're told that 'being ourselves' is the best thing we can do for our brands- but what does that actually look like? In this session, Lola will cover the importance of being 100% you and finding your Why in order to reach your version of success. We'll also work on diving deeper into your values and vision for your brand and finding clarity by working through worksheets and other resources. You'll leave with practical, actionable tips on how to be 100% you and how to figure out your Why in a way that's most aligned with your brand's value and vision. 

11:30 AM - 1:30 PM : Vicky, Mean Mail - Creating a personality for your brand / how to make your brand come to life

You will learn how to build your brand personality through values, visuals and voice. Through an interactive workshop on brand building, Vicky will help you to discover how to make your brand come to life, and clearly display what you stand for, through your visual identity and voice. 

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM : Lunch

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM : Julia, Humphrey & Grace - Building your brand on social media

In this Instagram workshop, we will be looking at some basic photography and editing techniques, including a brief look at editing apps. Julia will talk about how to make the most of your social media platforms, from setting up your account to organising your gallery and how to maximise the potential of your posts.

During the session, we will also create some styled setups and you will have the opportunity to put what you learn into practice while Julia is on hand to offer advice.

4.30PM - 5PM : Discussion with the group and Q&A with Olivia, Weekend:IN

The Q&A will be a chance to reflect on the day’s events. Starting out in business can sometimes feel like a lonely place so you can use this opportunity to let anything off your chest and create an open forum to discuss the different aspects of running a business and building a brand.
