How to run your creative business after Covid 19 with Chris Chinnock

Chris Chinnock specialises in Social enterprise, he goes across the U.K supporting and advising new businesses, community startups and organisations.

Chris has worked for over 20 years both for the public sector and the last few years presenting strategies and support with his own success business.

So initially – literally a couple of weeks before Covid 19 I wanted Chris on because he’s multi passionate!

Chris thrives in this game, and you can tell it’s his passion, he’s a wealth of knowledge and inspiration however, like many creatives he also has another passion which is his photography business.

So I wanted him initially to speak about that and what that can mean as a multi passionate.

But of course then all of this Covid hit and credit to how much of a pro Chris is, he intimately connected me and said creatives will want advice on long term strategies with diversifying business offers going forward for the next 18 months which is brilliant! And of course so needed for us all.

Chris’s Takeaways

1.Treat covid 19 as a permanent change for your business
