It’s been almost three years now since I attended the Clore Short Course and I always look back at it nostalgically and contemplate the way it transformed my perception of myself as an arts professional, the inspiring people I met and have become friends with, and the boost it gave me to move forward.

From a purely visual arts background, I now lead a marketing and engagement team within the Creative Foundation, an arts charity that oversees a number of diverse and exciting projects that includes performing arts, festivals and uses creativity and the arts as a regenerative force in Folkestone. The course gave me the opportunity to delve into myself, question and explore my potential and finally discover the type of leader I am.

At points it was an intense, soul searching exercise that you shared with other amazing arts professionals that liberated my thinking and every anxiety I had within me. I realised that I was not the only one that had doubts about myself as a leader and that enabled me to channel my attention to my strengths and build on them.
