More about our speakers

Designed to empower careers advisors by providing clear information about creative pathways, our Thrive conferences bring together industry and academic speakers to discuss the current landscape of creative industries and creative education.

Following the success of previous conferences, this February we’ll be hosting a development day exploring the employer’s perspective with speakers drawn from growth industries such as gaming, film and television and business. By the end of the event, you’ll have a deeper understanding of the current context for creative careers in the UK and ways to support students in entering into these fast-growing industries. 

Thrive: Creative Careers in 2019 is completely free for careers professionals working in schools and colleges, with places available on a first come, first served basis. A full programme and details of all speakers will be published here in due course.
