Making Money from Millinery: Business Mentoring at London Hat Week

 There are so many courses teaching you how to make hats and become a milliner, learning the techniques and allowing people to make the most beautiful hat. But what do you do with all these beautiful hats?

Beverley has been mentoring creative businesses for the past 2 years through Create and Conquer after finding a lack of help in the market for creatives with handmade products how to turn them into a profitable business. After starting her business from her parent’s spare room, over the last 10 years she has transformed he business in to Surrey’s leading millinery boutique winning the national accessory designer of the year in the wedding industry awards and has been shortlisted for Drapers independent retail awards for the last 3 years running. With a team of 5, she specialises in mother of the bride hats and headpieces and accessories for the style conscious and modern woman, both from her own store and multiple wholesale and own label accounts.

A champion of small and local businesses, Beverley is passionate about helping small creative business owners reach their potential, Beverley know all the ups and downs of running a small business and the pitfalls to avoid and how to scale your business.

This London Hat Week (22nd-28th March 2018) we are offering will be offering:

1-2-1 video skype mentoring sessions, with multi award winning milliner Beverley Edmondson.

These sessions fill the gap in the market for help and advice on setting up in business from someone who really understands the concept of making your own products by hand and turning it into a profitable business.

This is perfect for those looking at starting their own millinery business, or for those who are already in it but struggling to make it pay or take it to the next level.

After the success and over booking of last year’s group classes Beverley has decided that by offering 1-2-1 skype mentoring sessions she can offer the best value business advice and practical solutions, as it can then all be tailored around you.

Topics that may be covered could include but not be limited to:

  • How to gain clients and let people know you exist
  • What does success in this field mean to you?
  • Who is your Target Market and are you targeting them?
  • Marketing and social media
  • Understanding your pricing

This session aims to give practical and achievable business insights and goals not boring business plans.

All sessions will run via video skype, or over the phone, simple questionnaires will be sent out in advance so that Beverley can grasp, your needs for the session and understand where you currently are in your business.

Sessions will run throughout London Hat Week
