CWC - Ming-Zhu Hii, of Orlando and Ivy
Come along to the first Creative Women's Circle event for 2011. The speaker for this event is none other than the talented Ming-Zhu Hii, of Orlando and Ivy!
Ming-Zhu trained professionally as an actor, but a burning desire to foster others creative talent led her to open the North Melbourne based retail boutique, Orlando and Ivy in 2009. In between curating and managing Orlando and Ivy (which includes searching out amazing design and art objects, creative books and tools, and stationery) Ming-Zhu blogs extensively at www.orlandoandivy.com about creativity and creative business, sharing useful tidbits of her own experience leading a sweet, happy and successful life as a 'creative maverick'. Her passion is in helping other creatives reach their true potential in their businesses, and she does this through a range of online courses called The Public Studio.
Ming-Zhu will speak about her journey with Orlando and Ivy from 'big idea' to 'retail reality', and what made her decide to help artists pursue their own business dreams. She'll also step through some basic principles for thinking strategically about maintaining integrity and creative connection, while at the same time charting a course to authentic, lasting business and life success.
