5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

As part of London Design Festival 2019, Creative Entrepreneurs are delighted to bring their creative networking and mentoring event, ‘The Surgery’ to Second Home.

Join them for a panel discussion with leading creative business experts, covering the key topics every creative entrepreneur or freelancer needs to know, including marketing, legal and finance. Then, the creative experts will host ‘mini-surgeries’ where you’ll have the chance to put your questions to them directly in small groups of your peers. The evening will finish with drinks, nibbles and networking.
