For creatives looking to take the next step.

Aimed at helping you find both the inspiration and the practical advice you need to apply to your growing business or burgeoning big idea, our highly intimate Collective101 live masterclasses are led by leaders in every industry and not only will you be given indispensable knowledge and lessons straight from top brands and educators, this is your chance to grow your network and mingle with likeminded Collective Hub community. 

Calling all creatives, this masterclass has your name written all over it. Kickstart 2018 with a shot of creative motivation. This live masterclass is specifically for (creative) people under 30, who are looking for inspiration to take the next steps in launching and building a creative life.

Hosted by Matthew Haynes award-winning digital designer and founder of the internationally renowned ‘Design Conference’, Matthew will deliver his talk ‘Life is a Hamburger’, whilst unpacking all the layers of advice on what it takes to build a creative life (without losing your pickle).

Being someone who likes to learn first hand, I’m not about to blurt out a ‘one liner’ from the latest Simon Sinek book/podcast/post. Expect some real shit to come out of my mouth. Together we can investigate the pros and cons of exploring our comfort zones. A fear of failure is a fear of living!

– Matthew Haynes
