The T-Shirts and Suits Enterprise Network was an initiative by David Parrish, whose mission is to help creative entrepreneurs world-wide to help each other to become even more successful. In addition to informing and inspiring creative people through his speaking, training, consulting and writing, David connects creative people internationally so that they can learn from each other’s experiences in business.
In the years since the T-Shirts and Suits Enterprise Network was established online, Facebook, Linked In, and other social media platforms have become places in which creative entrepreneurs increasingly network with each other.
David has therefore set up various groups and pages for the same purpose: to help creative entrepreneurs become even more successful by networking with each other, sharing their experiences and learning from each other.
The T-Shirts and Suits Enterprise Network was closed in 2018 to be fully replaced by the following groups and pages, plus additional free resources on this website.
Other networks and groups:
There is a T-Shirts and Suits group on Facebook with over 4,000 members from 50 countries, called “T-Shirts and Suits (Creativity and Business)”.
