  1. Hi Jane

    This is really great news. I am working for CC consulting right now and I am learning so much about the creative industry.

    Did you know the UK has the largest creative industry in Europe? I never did. Based on your site and your About Me I assume you know these things. My point though is that the UK has a lot to offer and it is good to see the government getting involved in enhancing and supporting the industry.

    My current client Creative Connexions ( has launched offices in London (obviously), China and India to help creatives in the UK connect with businesses in China and India that need British creatives.

    It is an excellent opportunity I think for everyone to win. If you have not heard of them I would say check them out.

    I will drop by tomorrow and hopefully we can get this conversation going :))

    Kind regards
