It’s incredible how the concept of coworking has encouraged ambitious minded individuals to go freelancing. Here at Areaworks we meet all kinds of people in various fields of work. Not only that, we also offer our workspace as a place to host events which attracts more like-minded people to our space. A networking event is exactly how we met the lovely Hetty who is founder of CreatHers.
CreatHers is a company that hosts career and entrepreneurial networking events for female creatives. Hetty first hosted an event in our Areaworks Hackney building back in 2018. It was such a success that she is back again in January 2019 to host another networking event; a vision board party.
Without further ado, here’s more about the journey of Hetty and CreatHers!
How does your company/business benefit people?
CreatHers creates a space for female creatives to network and collaborate with like-minded individuals through events. Each event is theme based and works to help guests create opportunities for themselves as freelancers, professionals, businesswomen and entrepreneurs. Guests have received job and intern opportunities, launched businesses and have networked with creatives of all levels. We also support small brands by giving them a platform to exhibit their products and services.
What’s your favourite thing about the work you do?
The events are always my favourite part. So much work goes into organising each event so seeing it all come together puts a smile on our faces. The guests, speakers, vendors and the CreatHers team are incredible. The vibe is amazing. People never want to leave after the event ends because they just love the atmosphere.
What do you like most about your job?
I love knowing that I have helped my fellow creatives acquire opportunities and benefit from our events. When people come up to me and tell me that they loved my event – that makes me happy. It’s the reward I wait to receive.
What do you love about the area you work in?
I love hosting my events. I get to decide every aspect of it. I do have advisors and a small team, but I know that I get to see my vision through.
What have you got planned for the next few years?
We are planning on setting up another brand for both men and women in creative industries. Our aim is to host bigger and better events that will really make an impact in the creative sector.
