Kazakhstan creative industries entrepreneurs attended a public lecture featuring a presentation by David at Impact Hub Almaty in November 2018.
His presentation was at a public lecture attended by people involved in the Kazakhstan creative industries, cultural industries, creative economy and social entrepreneurship.
David spoke about creativity in business, both in the studio (a-Creativity) and in the business office (i-Creativity). His talk was entitled “How to Combine Creativity and Business” with examples from around the world, drawing on David’s experience of helping creative entrepreneurs to become even more successful in more that 50 countries.
David explained business models including ‘How to make money while you sleep’ using licensing of intellectual property; the ‘co-opetition’ technique; and the ‘Freemium’ business model. He also talked about how to create your own unique Business Formula. His points were presented in the context of the Kazakhstan creative industries.
“David’s visit to the Impact Hub Pilot Almaty was timely and very important to us, because he knows the ecosystem of creative industries and has enormous practical experience in working with creative businesses. David is a high level professional who speaks the genuine language of creative entrepreneurs. We feel very grateful that David spent one day providing individual consultations to creative entrepreneurs following his training workshop. They got valuable insights and now feel more inspired to continue their journey!”
