Creative Kernow

Laura Giles

Digital and Design Creative Business Advisor

I have always been passionate about working in the creative sector, starting my career in event & video production and advertising.

After my MBA, I began to pursue this further, producing four shorts and an award-winning feature documentary called SONS OF CUBA, which was broadcast by BBC4 Storyville and sold internationally.  I have worked in the marketing & communications team at the BFI and freelanced for a wide range of film & TV organisations including Raising Films and the British Film Commission.

I have twenty years’ experience of working with businesses at various stages of growth,

working with owner managers on a personal level as well identifying  the key priorities for the organisation and the team. I am fascinated about how small businesses evolve, and feel very strongly that creative businesses need more specialised support than the standard “one size fits all” business advice.

Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity’s transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.
