Just this year, Sean Low has taken over the wedding industry by storm and became one of the most recognizable figure! If you are in the wedding industry, and you have not heard of Sean Low, please stop what you are doing right this minute and take these immediate actions:

Sean Low is the Founder and President of The Business of Being Creative, a consulting firm focused on providing practical advice to those in the business of being creative. He has stayed under the radar for quite some time, as the force behind Preston Bailey Design's empire, to create the successful business it is today. Now, Sean has come out on his own and is available to consult those of us in the creative business, from wedding planners to invitation designers to bloggers. Artists and designers can be extremely talented at their crafts, but may not necessarily have the skills it takes to build and grow a business profitably. That's where Sean's expertise comes in--his extensive experience working for artists like Preston, Marcy Blum, Michelle Rago, Sylvia Weinstock, and Style Me Pretty has allowed him to thoroughly understand what it takes to merge art + business together to create a sounding, successful empire! Through his work with such talented people, Sean has discovered his own creative passion: thinking about creative businesses – how they run, how to make them run better, helping them know who they are and then be the best at what they do.
We are SO excited that Sean will be teaching at The Academy for Planners + Designers (TAPD) in March. Earlier this year, Sean spoke at a WIPA event in San Francisco, where he talked about pricing from the top down, and that planners should get rid of 'packages', amongst other topics. Since he had a broad audience that day, he couldn't get too deep into such topics, but we still walked away with lots to think about for our own businesses. We also heard him speak again at Engage!09 :: The Encore last month, and his presentation stirred up some pretty interesting conversation amongst the audience! He is a fabulous presenter, with so much knowledge and wisdom to offer, and we really are very fortunate to have him teach at our event next year.
We have asked Sean to really get into the nitty gritties at TAPD, on topics tailored specifically towards wedding planners, event designers, and floral designers. In addition, Sean will offer a limited number of 1 on 1 sessions for Wednesday, March 17, 2010. Please email us at email@example.com to inquire. To reserve a slot for Sean's 1 on 1 session, you must be a registered attendee of TAPD. The cost is $500 per 1 hour session.
