Maverick Salon


Maverick: a person who shows independent thought or action; unbranded.

Salon: a beautiful place of reception, refreshment and respectful debate.

Story is a universal language. We are surrounded by story; on our screens, in our books and conversations. Yet most people ignore story in their creative, online and working lives. Story is the most powerful way to connect! To your audience, your community, your people.

Being curious about story is a beautiful way to develop relationships with your community, and to establish your authenticity. Your story is unique, it is the sum of your experiences and the reason you do what you do.

In this workshop you will build an understanding of narrative. You will work to refine and focus your story. You will learn how to use your story to explore your purpose, build community and develop deeper engagement with your audiences and customers. You will work on developing your unique story framework to support your creative work, your business socials or your organisational themes.

Perfect for creatives, small business operators, those trying to kick-off a side hustle and those neck deep in the gig economy. You've got an idea you've been toying with that deserves the light of day. You need an idea? Maybe you need to write a story? This is the place to start!

Come spend the day with Madame Yum and friends who will spin you a tale or three and help you spin yours! Hosted by Erin M McCuskey Creative Director of Yum Studio. Your stake includes great coffee and food in a fabulous venue.

It's time to invest in yourself, your story and your ideas. Come along to this uplifting experience! Bring your calling cards!
