What can I expect from my Cultivator advisor?

No one knows your business or practice better than you, but our advisors are here to help you review your business, sound out new ideas and identify what you may need to grow, all in a highly confidential environment. Our support is flexible and will be responsive to the nature of your work and needs as a business.  

Your advisor also acts as your navigator through the Cultivator programme. They can suggest different elements of Cultivator programme that may be suitable to you, guide you through making any applications, and inform you when suitable skills or networking events and other opportunities are available. 

How much contact will I have with my advisor?

All Cultivator clients will be eligible for at least two one-to-one sessions (up to two hours each) with an advisor. These could happen face-to-face, on the phone or via Skype/Zoom. The content of the sessions could include: 

    • General business review and development analysis 
    • Working on specific business areas such as marketing strategy or finance 
    • Advising on an important upcoming milestone or project (e.g. a trade show; touring performance etc.) 
    • Supporting you to access the different elements of support within Cultivator. 


Based on the experiences and skills of your advisor, they might be able to help you with other elements of your business at their discretion.

Can I choose my Creative Business Advisor?

Following your completion of the sign-up process, we will assign you the most appropriate advisor. Your advisor may change through the programme if your business evolves. Your advisor may also bring in support from other advisors and experts if they feel you need additional support in some areas.
