‘Change, Creativity & Courage in a Crisis: Why now is the time to start something new’

This Way Up X Creativebrief online panel event

The event that celebrates those that dare to do, is back! Continuing on our successful partnership with Creativebrief, we bring you a panel of industry experts to discuss … 'Why now is the time to start something new'

Procrastinate, pivot or put off big decisions. In amongst the white noise and uncertainty of the coronavirus crisis, it's all too easy to let your ideas get lost in the treacle of day to day life in a global pandemic. Yet arguably there has never been a better time to start something new; as personally and professionally people across the globe reappraise and reimagine their everyday lives.

What you will get from this panel:

Honest discussion: Nothing good is ever easy, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t launch it or do it. Our experts will lift the lid on the reality of starting something new in the crisis.

Practical insights into starting something: Hear from the experts which risks are worth taking or find motivation to build something different or new. From insights on how to test and learn to practical discussions about the market for direct to consumer products and the appetite for new ideas, agencies, products and services.

Let’s ‘Get Sh*t Done’: As usual with our events, we'll give YOU the chance to tell us how we can HELP YOU - whether it’s a personal project, a side hustle or business. We will give each other a helping hand and brainstorm interesting solutions to problems - no matter how big or small! To facilitate this, we ask that you submit your business idea, side-hustle, dreams you’d like specific help on in advance. You can do this by emailing
