Etsy is hosting a special summit on 2 June as part of Vivid Sydney 2012. Etsy Success Sydney will inspire, inform and connect local creative entrepreneurs who wish to learn new skills, understand the need for change in the new economy, and make their businesses sustainable and viable.
Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson will outline his personal strategy for innovation in his keynote address, Finding Your Courage, as he makes his first visit to Australia.
Some of Australia’s best and most accomplished creative minds will also share the secrets of their success, with topics ranging from starting a business to team and media management, networking, entrepreneurship and online selling. Speakers include PottyMouthMama blogger Lexi Kentmann, Jo Walker from Frankie magazine, stylist Lara Hutton and Valerie Khoo from Sydney Writers’ Centre.
The day will also feature panel discussions with successful Australian Etsy sellers, as well as a range of workshops in which attendees will hone their business and Etsy-related skills.
“I look forward to visiting Australia this June, meeting the vibrant local Etsy community and speaking at Etsy Success Sydney,” says Chad. “In the past several months, we’ve made big strides in internationalisation and we’re really excited about the momentum on all fronts — with buyers, sellers, developers, and partners. We’re more committed than ever to help Etsy sellers around the world become even more successful in 2012, and providing more of the tools and services that people around the world need to build and run their businesses on Etsy.”
Etsy Success Sydney is running as part of the Vivid Ideas program at Vivid Sydney 2012 (25 May – 11 June), a festival of light, music and ideas, and a major celebration of our creative industries. Vivid Sydney is one of the world’s top ten ideas festivals, as ranked by the Guardian UK newspaper.
