Last week I popped by the Copywriters Unite meet up in Manchester. Hosted by the lovely Megan Wright, the evening saw a host of wordy creatives flock to Manchester bar Ply, for a good old beer and natter!
Without throwing every cliche in the book at it, creative break-ups can be just as devastatingly-heartbreakingly-awful as the kind you might quietly utter, "it's not you, it's me," or, "I really want to try and be on my own for a while."
We spend most of our lives at work and those we chose to develop close relationships to do indeed matter. But what happens when it really isn't working out and it's time to end your partnership? Here's the low-down on the amicable break-up.
We can all agree this is something we can’t get away from, fudge the facts or deny isn’t happening. Especially since the BBC you-know-what. However, let’s look for a moment at the positives, let’s look at what we’re actually doing to change the state of play.
As well as contributing here at the Young Creative Council I actively play a part as Creative Director and Ambassador for Northern Power Women. This is a collective that’s actively trying to accelerate the gender diversity divide in the North of England. Through engagement, networking, events and awards they look to showcase strong and influential role-models. People who are not only kicking ass but helping or sponsoring, mentoring and/or supporting other women to step into their field.
