IDI MIND OVER MATTER

Make it work for your business. With locations across Ireland, Mind Over Matter will take place on 10th October 2018. For a fee of €75(£70) anyone from an established business to a start-up or an entrepreneur can book a consultation hour with a top creative professional. During that time, you’ll receive expert knowledge and ideas, create new opportunities and with the entire fee going to Aware, you’ll be raising money for a great cause too.

I'll be sharing my design knowledge during this year's Mind Over Matter in Belfast. If you are a business looking for creative strategy in turn for a donation to Aware - a mental health charity, make sure you book a slot and I'll bring my A-Game.
