We are looking for 2-3 Upland members to present some live group advice sessions and a companion resource for other Upland members on an area of expertise that will benefit others during this time. 

These advice sessions aim to support Upland members to continue to develop their practice and help their businesses during this COVID-19 period. The aim to get Upland members online, engaging with online audiences, sell online and raise awareness of member’s practice and develop their skills. 

What we are looking for
The survey to Upland members highlighted that members were looking to: 

  • Develop their online selling platforms 
  • Making short videos (including, editing, sound compression etc) 
  • Using social media 
  • Writing funding applications 
  • Marketing themselves
  • Advice on presenting workshops online 
  • Presentation techniques 
  • Responding to open calls 
  • Curating an online catalogue 
  • Selling on social media 

Can you help with any of these needs? Do you have something else you could offer? 

We are looking for practical advice sessions rather than discipline led tuition. Therefore, these advice sessions should relate to many Upland members across varying disciplines. 

These sessions will take place on zoom and members will have the chance to register for them. They should take up to an hour which will include some Q&A time at the end. In advance attendees will be invited to send in specific questions for consideration. After this, a companion resource will be made available to the members on the member’s area of the Upland website. As well as presenting the advice session, the host will be expected to produce this resource based on their session notes. 

Fees will be in line with SAU rates and will be negotiated in terms of preparation / delivery time required.
