Scottish Screen helps develop industry training programme

News Image
Screen consultants Olsberg/SPI, in association with Scottish Screen, are to hold an industry training programme entitled 'Enterprise Scotland: Business Strategies for the Scottish Producer' from May 2 to 4, 2002.
This intensive three-day workshop is tailored specifically for Scottish audio-visual producers (film, television and interactive media) intent on developing strategic business skills that will assist them in building their businesses into strong and flourishing enterprises. The course will lead producers to think about creating sustainable businesses that beat the feast/famine cycle of development and production.
The course will teach key skills such as how to develop the tools to analyse one's business and think about different product lines.
Steve McIntyre, Scottish Screen Chief Executive (pictured), said: "We're delighted to be able to offer this programme to the Scottish producer community. We believe it fits exactly with Scottish Screen's goals of building a strong indigenous industry. Strategic business development leads to genuine sector sustainability, which is our principal aim."
The course will draw on the expertise of a range of successful media professionals and business strategists from across Europe and, in a series of plenary and small group sessions, the selected Scottish producers will be able to download invaluable information and assess their own business strategies.
This course is also designed to help producers prepare applications to the newly launched Scottish Screen/Scottish Enterprise Company Development Investment Programme 2002.
Participants should be from Scottish media companies that have already achieved a degree of creative and commercial success and which are now at a significant stage of company development. Places on the programme will be offered with the financial assistance of Scottish Screen.
