Specialists from across disciplines will be dispersed across the festival site to offer inspirational advice and guidance on everything from careers guidance, routes to finance, intellectual property, taking on apprentices.
“Experts Corner” also invites spontaneous soapbox and discussion with speakers and audience alike. Topics can be designated by willing participants who feel like they have some useful knowledge to share - no need to book your slot you can just chalk it up on the day!
After teaching Business for 25 years, and seeing the decline of opportunities for children to be creative in schools, I decided to ‘walk the walk’ instead of ‘talking the talk’ and set up my own business with the aim of encouraging creativity in children and adults of all ages. I chose to buy into The Creation Station franchise, as I felt that our mission to Inspire Imaginations and our ethos to encourage creativity via a variety of arts and crafts activities. I now run a range of classes and events including birthday parties in Norwich and east Norfolk.
