Some of Manchester’s finest creative minds are joining forces at this year’s Business North West event in order to provide an insight on how using creative services can drastically improve your business results.
During the event, a hand-picked selection of ‘Creative Geniuses’ will be on hand at Stand 199, where businesses will be able to book in for a free, informal chat on a range of creative services; from branding, advertising and PR, through to exhibition design, web design, search engine optimization and e-commerce.
Each participating Creative Genius has been selected through their extensive track record of delivering results to businesses, and between them they have an equally impressive roster of satisfied customers including Royal Mail, Adidas, Astra Zeneca, and United Utilities.
A total of twelve Creative Geniuses will be available to offer advice and insight on how a little creativity can make a big difference to the way you do business, and will be on hand to answer everything you wanted to know about creativity but were afraid to ask. No matter how big or small your business, or how grand your plans, this is a great opportunity to pick the brains of industry experts.
The stand has been co-ordinated by Manchester’s Creative Industries Development Agency (CIDS), a not-for-profit support organisation for the sector and will be flying the flag for design and creative services throughout this year’s Business North West. In addition to the Creative Genius Zone, they have secured Orange’s Director of Design, Clive Grinyer to deliver a keynote speech on how SMEs can use design to differentiate their products and services.
IDS will also present a special business master-class, titled "Creativity and the bottom line" in which creative agencies will discuss high-profile creative campaigns with their clients, and what impact they have had on profits. Both the Clive Grinyer keynote and the master-class will take place on November 21st.
To book in for your free session with a Creative Genius Bar, either pre-book by emailing your topic of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply turn up to Stand 199 during your visit to Business North West and we’ll book you an appointment.
