Last Saturday I got to attend Lady Petrova's School of Fabulousness class on social media covering everything from Twitter to Instagram and everything in between.Were it not for her competition giving one lucky girl the chance to win a place in each workshop under a School of Fabulousness scholarship I probably would not have been in attendance. I'm so glad I did though, because it's always really interesting to discuss how media is changing and discussing strategies on how to use it to your advantage. I'll try and post an abridged version of the notes I took very soon (pending permission of course). We got to sit on a lovely rooftop terrace while drinking tea and coffee and eating miniature cupcakes! What was really inspiring was being in the company of so many amazing women with aspirations as makeup artists, jewellery makers and independent designers. Not to mention the wonderful ladies my age and a few girls who were still in high school.
If you yourself are a budding small business owner or creative based in Melbourne or you plan on visiting very soon I highly recommend you check out the last two classes: How to Plan a Cult Brand (this weekend) and Production, Pricing and Planning (the following weekend). If you can't fit a class into your budget at the moment don't worry! There are some more classes planned in the near future running this year so I recommend you stay up to date by following the School of Fabulousness instagram account. While there are numerous classes on business I think Lady Petrova does deliver information in way that is easy to understand but also studies the way new media interacts with consumer behavior. By contrast as a blogger I am trying to sell my website and things were a little bit different but I did get some wonderful tips on how to run a successful Instagram account. It was so lovely to meet so many great women and I can't wait to attend another event in the near future.
