Overcoming Promophobia Seminar with Deborah Henry-Pollard

  • Wimbledon Art Studios 10 Riverside Yard London SW17 0BB (map)

When it comes to ‘marketing’ yourself or your projects do you get concerned about…

-       Coming across as ‘salesy’?

-       Being a ‘bother’?

Do you also find yourself…

-       Coming up with reasons to not post online, send an email, update a website or similar?

-       Getting concerned about promoting what you’re doing when so many big and important things are happening in the world?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, you’ve experienced promophobia. The struggle is real… yet it’s possible to put in place ways to address it, to move forward in your career.

In this seminar with creative business specialist, coach, and author Deborah Henry-Pollard, the following areas will be covered:  

  • Discovering the inter-connectedness of your creativity, values and career; 

  • Finding your authentic voice to better enable you to communicate – online, in-print and in-person alike; 

  • Understanding the needs and challenges of prospective clients, collaborators and employers, to help you understand how your message and offerings are exactly what a ready and waiting audience seeks;  

  • Turning the table upside down with an exercise, to develop meta awareness to assist you objectively assessing self-doubting moments in real-life as they occur; and

  • Attaining an understanding of Imposter Syndrome – and utilising the results of research conducted by Be Smart About Art to help you work through it (even if it never goes away).  

This workshop incorporates a Q&A, set to address your individual concerns and experiences, to help you thrive as a creative entrepreneur.
