start with the magic
Running a creative business is quite possibly one of the most rewarding ways to make a living. You get to create a sustainable, profitable, successful business around doing what you love on a daily basis. You get to call the shots. To work with clients who truly value what you do and who will give you the creative freedom to your very best work.
So how do you win this work? How do you attract clients who'll give you the trust, freedom and support you need to fulfil what you're truly capable of? It certainly doesn’t come from formulaic sales copy, complicated systems, funnels or strategies. It’s really very simple.
You need to find the magic within your work and treasure it. You need to be able to articulate and communicate why your clients should pick you over anyone else. And as a creative entrepreneur, it’s not your customer service, your professionalism or your quick turnarounds. It’s your creative style.
This uplifting and inspirational two-day workshop will give you clarity, confidence and huge dose of encouragement to get out there, attract the right clients and showcase the very best of what your business has to offer.

THURSDAY 14 may,
WIN THE RIGHT WORK
Captivate your clients, generate a buzz and build momentum. Craft an inspirational muse and discover how to dazzle potential clients with your brilliance, captivate them with your expertise and galvanise those that are the right fit to see your business as the only logical choice for them.
what you'll gain
Finding the clarity and confidence in your unique creative style is at the very heart of this workshop. You'll leave with a freshly curated, cohesive and compelling portfolio your clients can spot a mile off. You'll be able to properly articulate what your style is, what it isn't, and you'll know precisely the kinds of clients you want to work with and those to walk away from.
Inspiration is the lifeblood of every creative business. This workshop will supercharge your inspiration, feed your creativity and open the door to what's truly possible within your work. You'll be inspired by the light-filled setting, the beautiful gardens and the incredible food, but most importantly, this workshop has been designed to empower you to put your own creative flair at the very heart of what you do. And that will have quite a magical effect on your business.
You'll leave our two days together with the confidence to go for the work you know you're really capable of and with the tools to make your company an absolute no brainer for the clients who are the right fit. Together we'll explore the specific tools you can use to create momentum for your business, captivate your clients and raise your game.
The Orangery at the iconic Beaverbrook is a light-filled wonder in what's been described by the Sunday Times as 'the coolest country house'.
As soon as you arrive, you know you're in for a treat. Set in an epic estate with panoramic views across the Surrey Hills, Beaverbrook is a place to reset your thinking, elevate your vision and step into what you're truly capable of.
Food is one of the main attractions, with a groundbreaking Japanese restaurant in the Main House and a gorgeously colourful Garden House, complete with sloe gin honesty bar and shelves full of Penguin classics for cosy nights by the fire. An extravagant spa is currently under construction which may be open in time for our workshop. Either way, you're in for an absolute treat.

FAQ's and terms
frequently asked questions
what are the terms of booking?
We’re so excited to welcome you to the workshop! Please do read the following carefully because by booking your place, you agree to the workshop terms and conditions.
As you know, Brand Stylist events are incredible, inspirational and highly sought-after and often sell out very quickly. It’s important to us that when you book, you’re serious about taking up your place. Because if you’re not, that prevents someone else experiencing the magic, which doesn’t feel very fair.
We have a very strict and transparent cancellation policy.
We do understand that very, very occasionally you may need to cancel your place. If you cancel within one month of the workshop, you will incur a 100% charge and your payment will not be refunded. You may send someone else in your place if you choose to. You must let us know who you will be sending at the time of cancellation.
Whilst we often keep a waiting list, we will not refund your course fee if you are unable to attend: even if we fill the place.
It’s essential you are committed to attending this workshop and that you only sign up with this commitment in mind.
copyright content and course materials
All course material, workshop content and marketing literature is protected copyright. What that means in simple terms is that you may not copy it, reproduce it or share without prior written permission.
Should you choose to pay in instalments, it’s down to you to make a note of payment dates and to be sure you have adequate funds in your account to cover the transfer.
HOW DO I GET TO beaverbrook
Beaverbrook is set just outside Leatherhead which you can access via train from central London's Waterloo and Victoria stations. You'll need a taxi to get you to the house mind, the drive alone must be a mile and a half!
There's plenty of parking on site and if you're coming from overseas, you'll be well serviced by Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
CAN I STAY AT beaverbrook?
There are two hotels on the estate: The Garden House (cosy and colourful and my personal favourite) or the epic Main House for some serious big thinking. The James Flemming suite is pretty mind-blowing if you really want to treat yourself. Please note that accommodation is not included in the cost of the workshop.
I LIVE NEARBY, DO I NEED TO STAY?
Not at all. Workshop sessions run between 9.30am and 4.30pm where we’ll spill into the well-stocked bar for a celebratory cocktail.
There is absolutely no obligation to join us outside of these hours so if you’d prefer to stay at home, or with family and friends, that will work really well.
