CONSULTATION

What we offer: Consultation

Consultation | Jeremy’s experience and creativity in all aspects of the arts make him a valuable and knowledgeable addition to any project. In the last few years Jeremy has been involved in a number of events in the capacity of consultant, namely the resurrection of the Totnes Lantern Festival, the Totnes Sculpture Trail, Ratchet Theatre’s Research and Development Arts Council funding application, Totnes Tourist Information Centre’s end of season visitor report and the Acorn Art Centre’s report in to utilising St. John’s Hall Penzance as a performance venue.

Between 2007 and 20115 Jeremy conceived and managed the end of year graduate performances at South Devon College in Paignton. These ranged from performances in a bath, a busking festival, a Victorian parlour magic show, numerous stage productions and the creation of a “celebrity”, named (rather aptly) Celia Brity!

Summary
Many an event manager or project manager can be seen relaxing during an event. Is this because they have nothing to do? Hopefully not. This is, in fact, an ideal scenario. Doing your homework before an event starts can save time, embarrassment and money. A small fee for a consultancy before an event starts can save considerable resources in the long run.
