This event is part of Raise Your Game, a digital skills programme from Creative Edinburgh. Designed for creative freelancers and with a focus on digital tools, data and future-proof working models, it provides the space, confidence and skills required to envision and work toward the next stage of your career.

Whether you attend one workshop or all eight, it's time to take stock, make moves, think forward, and get prepared to Raise Your Game. To find out more about Raise Your Game programme, visit here or explore the full Programme Overview here.


As a creative, does running a business ruin your creative flow? In a world of screen fatigue, push notifications and digital solutions, how can we streamline our workload and balance different projects to allow focus on the creative process? 

Delivered by Jessica Armstrong, Project Manager and Creative Producer, this session will explore approaches to organising yourself, your tasks, your stakeholders and your creative world.

Taking place on Zoom Meetings, there'll be opportunity for discussion, activities away from the screen and Q+A. Join this interactive session and learn the processes and skills which bring you the space and time to be creative! 

What will be covered?

  • Build awareness of how you work and how this will drive you toward your goals
  • Learn how to approach your creative world with intention
  • Explore steps and methodologies that you might use to be more productive
  • Familiarise yourself with apps and frameworks that can support your project
  • Management, productivity, communication, efficiency and so much more
Who's your host?
