it's not very often you come across business support and you feel like it's geared towards you. I feel like I can go into the meeting and be totally honest and they'll just get it. Rather than have to speak in a different businessy language.
Cultivator helped us rethink who we are and how we share that story – it transformed our brand, retail and customer service offer.
The ongoing, in-depth, dynamic, focused, practical and targeted support that Cultivator is able to offer creative businesses is pure gold. I have been able to develop my business from the tentative ideas stage to building momentum and recognition, as well as respect as a designer in a very competitive market place.
Thanks to Cultivator, I am for the very first time in my career, completely self- contained as a recording artist, live performer and video director.
