Over 100 attendees were given the opportunity to hear the background to the successful creative agency, including the highlights throughout the last decade for one of Scotland’s most successful creative businesses.
Andrew shared insight into the reality of creating a new business with £1,000 and a new baby through to challenges of growing the business and continuing to ensure the business stays true to its core roots.
Delegates also had the opportunity to win MadeBrave goodie bags, while having the opportunity to pose questions to Andrew directly and share their own experiences.
The event also continued with the popular “spread the word” feature, which heard from KAYOS Youth Theatre’s recent Edinburgh Fringe success as well as an overview from RIG Arts of the up and coming Galoshans Festival on 25 October – 2 November 2019.
The final part of the night was hosted by Heather McCulloch from The Pirate and Bluebelle in Gourock, who delivered a networking session for the attendees to make new connections and recognise opportunities within the Creative Inverclyde community.
Reflecting on the event, Andrew Dobbie said:
“This was a really enjoyable evening and I was delighted by the warm response from the attendees. There was great energy in the room throughout and it’s clear that Creative Inverclyde is generating something really exciting and engaging for the local community.”
Creative Inverclyde Co-Founder, Andrew Bowman said:
“What a wonderful showcase Andrew Dobbie provided to the local creative community, providing insight, advice and inspiration for those in attendance while being generous with his time in meeting with the delegates afterwards by participating in the networking session.
“This was another special event and we are very thankful to Andrew and the MadeBrave team for supporting Creative Inverclyde and all of the attendees for coming along”.
Creative Inverclyde’s next event will be hosted in November 2019, with details announced next month.
