Kickstart 2021: A series of virtual events supporting the Entertainment & Live Events Industry

New Year, new you. Start it right!

It’s been a challenging year for everyone in the business. There is no doubt we are all missing the amazing feeling of working on a great show, event or production.

The day will come when we can return to creating, sharing and contributing to our amazing cultural heritage. In the meantime, let’s make the best of the time we have and ensure we’re ready to make 2021 a success.

The first three sessions of our series have been a tremendous success. JD Rainey of Finmo set out some invaluable guidance for those who needed that little boost of confidence to get taxes and finance in hand. The following week, Claire James of Pivotal Moment and Michaela Blackburn of “Becoming Michaela” made sure that our mental health and wellbeing were at the forefront of our daily lives. In our third session, Curtain Call’s own John Schwab led a networking masterclass – proving that “networking” doesn’t have to be a dirty word.

In our fourth and final session, we will ensure that your year is kicked off in style by giving you tips and hints to get you work ready. The panel will include a casting director, a producer and a production manager.

So pour yourself a coffee—or even a glass of wine—as we exchange support and advice in a relaxed, safe environment. Our special guests are qualified to provide advice and support in the three cornerstone areas of mental health, financial advice, and educational mentorship.

Propel yourself into 2021. Make it your own; make it count.
