EHICE has been an amazing journey, I picked up skills and knowledge that not only helped me as a Creative freelancer, but it empowers me with the know-how of navigating Singapore business processes when it comes to starting a business. A great environment for start-ups to safely share ideas and learn to refine business ideas. Lecturers are industry professionals who gave very practical knowledge and examples and helped me understand the lessons a lot better.
I found the topics covered very useful and the WSQ Diploma delivered at Emily Hill Enterprise was a good preparation ground for aspiring entrepreneurs, especially those without prior background in business management. The speakers and the trainers were from diverse backgrounds and they provided me with a broader perspective of the creative industries. The course on law, finance and marketing were especially practical for my business start-up.
The PDCE (now called WSQ Dip CE) course gives a valuable perspective for the creative person on how to manage and effectively run their business in a professional manner.Even after having managed a decently successful business for more than 20 years before I signed up for the pilot PDCE course, I found that there are [sic] so much more to learn and to polish up on already established policies and practices. I fully encourage and support the creative person to sign up as I have benefited tremendously from my participation. Not only have I improved on my management capability but also the network of friends that I gained has been of tremendous value to me personally.
The course offers a holistic programme for creative entrepreneurs, with a good lineup of notable speakers and ample hands-on activities.
The WSQ Diploma in Arts Management (WSQ Dip AM) course supports the arts sector by nurturing administrative and managerial aptitude as well as accelerating professional development amongst aspiring arts administrators and managers.
