What makes the Creative Council different from the DesignDash Mastermind?

The DesignDash Creative Council is tailored to entrepreneurs, creatives in the C-Suite, and those focused on career acceleration. The Council is by-invitation and we are currently extending invitations and accepting applications for our "Founding Members", limited to 50 creative professionals. The Council meets virtually 4x per year for strategic planning, monthly for virtual "coffee chat", and in person at select industry events throughout the year. 

The DesignDash Mastermind is exclusively for business owners in the interior design industry. The Mastermind is limited to a total of 8 individuals in each cohort with monthly structured sessions consisting of a focused educational component and the opportunity to work directly on each member's top-of-mind issues. We work together to implement processes and tools directly into each member's business in real time. The Mastermind also includes one in-person retreat every 6 months.

The structured approach to strategic planning and the focus on both personal and professional growth is a goal of both programs. Each provide tools and resources specifically crafted for design business management, coupled with opportunities for real-time engagement with industry peers.
