All The Skills has a new business mentor!
As some of you will know earlier this year All The Skills successfully applied for a grant from the LIPA Business Development fund for graduates. As well as getting a well appreciated cash injection of 1,100 pounds we also get the advice of a business mentor.
We have finally found out who our mentor is going to be and it’s very exciting. Mark Featherstone-Witty, Founding Principal and CEO of The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. A person with the experience to help us with our questions about breaking into the corporate sector as well as someone with knowledge of the arts industry. Hooray!
We are meeting mid-December to discuss how All The Skills can start 2010 IN STYLE!!!
Also back when Naomi was a poor student, Mark Featherstone-Witty made a generous personal donation towards a mission trip to Cambodia.
However, just in case our other business adviser is feeling ignored, a HUGE THANK YOU to Martyn Walsh from Blue Orchid who has been absolutely instrumental in taking All The Skills from a dream written on 3 bits of paper to the business it is today where we have regular work for 7 artists.
And yes just in case you are wondering it is the Martyn Walsh from Inspiral Carpets!!!
