Learn why sales is an essential skill for small business survival with designer Kirsty Thomas and Business Advisor Ewen Fleming.

This workshop will be led by Ewen Fleming from Johnston Carmichael. Ewen is well versed, and has a consistently successful track record, in selling. He is passionate about seeing and delivering the potential beyond what is already present and developing individuals & teams to optimise results.

Hear from Kirsty Thomas from Tom Pigeon about the power of effective sales. Kirsty will discuss the journey of Tom Pigeon and the varied routes to market that have allowed the business and her personal practice to grow and develop. From craft fairs to international design festivals, pop up shops to high end collaborations, Kirsty will talk about success, failure, confidence, resilience and keeping things exciting.
