Just two opportunities this week, to ease you into 2012:

The Invest in Nottingham Club is repeating their Creative Class promotion of local creative businesses who really want to grow.  A small number of creative businesses will be selected for the Creative Class 2012.  As well as press and website promotion, there is mentoring support, networking and general help. In return they expect the business leaders to fully participate in their press opportunties and generally act as an ambassador for Nottingham.

The “class” of 2011 is a distinguished list, and you can see them at a special meeting in Nottingham Contemporary next Wednesday, 11 January at 6pm, and learn more about this opportunity.  For more information about the event or any questions, email Natalie Williams, the Invest in Nottingham Club co-ordinator at  Or you could just apply online.

If you inspect the list of 2011, you will see it contains one of our guest bloggers, Susi Henson, of Eternal Spirits, who has emailed us about her plans to

to launch an inspiring show of creative talent at the International Design Festival Milan in April 2012. We are inviting local businesses of Nottinghamshire an opportunity to be part of it.

As well as enabling talented businesses and individuals to show themselves to their best in front of potential clients and stakeholders, the process will bring together a collaboration of like-minded and inspiring individuals to work together, share ideas and gain refreshment.

If you want to know more, there is a meeting at Nottingham University, Business School South, Jubilee Campus Room A26 on Wednesday 11th Jan at 6pm.  [Everything happens at 6pm next Wednesday, and some people will be in two places at once, apparently.] They would appreciate an R.S.V.P to if you are planning to attend.

Go For It!
