About the event

Hello, Creative Entrepreneurs!

You've tirelessly built your business with passion and creativity (or maybe you're preparing to). Let’s give your visual presence some genuine love and attention and set you up with skills that literally pay the bills. I’m Rachel of Rely on Rach, here to guide you through "Mastering Canva for Entrepreneurs" (level 1 cause there's always more to share) – a workshop tailored specifically for creative minds like yours, where your hard work meets smart design.

Why This Workshop is Perfect for You:

As a creative entrepreneur, you need a design tool that matches your efficiency and vision. Canva is that tool. It’s more than aesthetics; it’s about creating visuals that embody the spirit of your brand and this workshop is packed with wisdom that will ignite your creative abilities. The experience is custom curated to the guests who are sitting in the seats. 

Love genuine connection and a treat-yoself moment? I'll pamper you with a nourishing locally sourced lunch and have herbal teas and other delights to keep us fueled. Wanna celebrate your new skills? Stay after and snag a cocktail and bite (additional fee does apply).
