Upcoming workshops:

Goal Setting with Veronica Herber

When:   Saturday April 18, 10am - 2:30pm

Where:  TBC (Central Auckland)

Price:     $85


Artist and experienced business coach Veronica Herber will present
this workshop, “From my experience as a business coach focusing on values,
I learned that goals need to be personally tailored for each
person to keep their inspiration alive. Whenever setting goals, I
first ask questions about what is important to that individual. It is
surprising how everyone has such different motivations so it
is important to discover what drives them.”

The day will be structured around questions to identify each
participants values. We then take these results to create a step by step
practical process to help each person plan their next 6 to 12 months
with a 5 year goal in mind.

The session will be fast moving, interesting
and fun with concrete outcomes to take away.

Before becoming a full time contemporary artist Veronica Herber was a successful business coach in Christchurch. Now fully immersed in her art practice, she still enjoys sharing practical goal setting knowledge with others, particularly those in the creative industries.
