  •  Communication & Marketing: websites, social media and dealing with the press
  •  Routes to Market: galleries, agents, craft fairs, national and international fairs

Take advantage of the opportunity to talk in detail about your business ideas to a jewellery and silversmithing entrepreneur who has built and guided small, medium and large companies to success. More information can be found here.
