“Creative Georgia invited David Parrish to participate as main speaker in the online conference of the RE -conception project in the context of the British Council support program, ‘Creative Spark: Higher Education Enterprise Program’. His speech bore the title “How to be Successful Creatively AND Commercially”, in which he emphasized the smart sides of being creative and commercial at the same time. He brought in his own life experience, and the way he expressed his ideas was very inspiring for the Georgian audience. Especially for the newcomers and students who found his lecture motivating and encouraging. In the end of the event the pitching competition happened and the winner team received the special prize from David Parrish which is an online toolkit “RE-designing Your Creative Business”.
