Philiy Page

I’m so pleased that you have stopped by to find out more about the resources I have to help you build a successful creative career.

You might be thinking that you don’t know where to start, or have recently taken on a job and wish that you were running your own business. I have been there myself and know that it can feel scary to make a change.

I’m here to help you as much as I can to help you towards
the creative career you have always dreamed of having. 

In case you don’t know who I am or what I do, or why on earth I can help you! Let me give you the short version…
I have been working in the creative industries as a freelancer for over 24 years. I have had the pleasure of working for companies like The Guardian newspaper, Marie Claire magazine, The BBC, Channel 4, Fox Searchlight, Nesta and The British Council. You can read the longer version here: About Philiy.

All of this has allowed me to mentor & train international creative start-ups, and those who have been in business for several years and are now looking to grow their business.

I have had many amazing times during my creative career, as well as tough times which have helped me to develop tools and resources for you to use. I have had no legs-up in this business, I don’t have any family who opened doors for me, this was achieved all on my own- which is why I know you can do it as well!

By signing up below you will be added to my list for free, to receive resources every two weeks. Sometimes these are podcasts on a topic to help your career, a printable worksheet to help you work out a problem, other times I have expert guests who share their advice to help your career flourish. You will also be the first to hear of events, discounted tickets to online courses and much more.

Philiy provided me with just the right support and insight I needed to move forward with my business. I was hoping for advise on promotions and expansion but what I received was that and much more. She had thought about my business inside and out from a clear perspective, and she demonstrated how I could take steps in every area from customer communication to social media strength to promotional timings to making my bigger long term visions come true.

I met with Philiy having just set up a new small business a couple of months earlier and was finding the learning curves overwhelming and confusing. Through her clarity and objective creative stance, she allowed me to focus on my original vision for the business, bringing new ideas and perspectives as well as helping me tease out the important aspects that needed attention. This lessened the overwhelming feelings which was a real help at a difficult time.

I admired Philiy’s teaching style, which was interactive, funny and inspiring. She knew what she was talking about as a creative entrepreneur herself. She not only taught but also gave advice on useful books, local sites and shared personal stories. She’s an amazing person and teacher.

Philiy acted more like a friend than a trainer, and one of us because she was a entrepreneur too and that helps her in order to understand our concerns, fears and so on. Thanks to Philiy, I have been socialized with other entrepreneurs and I also represented my ideas and my feelings about my business idea to others. At the end of the training I felt more confident.

Philiy is such an amazing individual that makes you feel full of energy in every minute of  intense creative business training. With her smiling face she gives you extra hope but at the same time she pushes every trainee to understand their own capability. By her help you become able to understand better your weak and strong sides, your positive and negative characteristics, your ups and downs, most of all your resistance to survive as an entrepreneur.

As someone who is at the start up phase of a long term project and business the Creative Women International has been an invaluable resource of information, advice and support. Having a well used online network at hand to both answer questions and positively receive my input had been a real boost during the times I have been stuck in a rut.

Creative Women International has given me the opportunity to meet both local and international professional creative women, to share ideas and pearls of wisdom to what is often a very solitary world.  It’s hard to put into words or to measure the ripples that something like this causes, but for me, it opens doors and expands my horizons and creates a sense of ease knowing there are millions of women out there working alone in similar aspects and that we are all in it together …for each other.

As a freelance creative and sole proprietor, it is so important to be able to connect to other creative women. Stories from other members inspire me, and allows me to connect internationally so I can keep up with what is going on in other creative industries. It’s a great resource and the support is essential.

The Creative Women International provides invaluable support, inspiration and a sense of community for women in the Creative Arts- Wherever you might be in the world, and whatever you might be creating, there is a collective of women who can relate to, advise, motivate, conspire with and inspire you.

Being a Creative Women International member provides me with a way to be around amazing woman and allows me to know their work, develop an extremely important exchange in the creative industries. Through Creative Women International I can connect with creative women around the world, listen to them and understand art. I have access to relevant and inspiring articles. I can read about partnership and collaboration opportunities. Being part of Creative Women International is an honour.

Being lucky enough to have experienced a few different mentors lately I was in a position where I was wondering what more advice I could possibly get and how would it benefit me. Having a one hour session with Philiy blew any preconceptions out of the water, as she methodically took each question I had and demystified a whole array of subjects! Looking back on the session and my 6 double-sided pages of scribbled notes I’m not sure how she managed to fit all the information into one session! However, she did, it was incredibly helpful and she’s bloody lovely too! In terms of investing time into your business, time with Philiy is time very well spent.

Philiy has been a great help to me in regards to starting my own creative business. She has aided me in developing new ideas and strategies to help take my business forward and has a wealth of knowledge relating to the creative industry. It is always a pleasure to discuss new possibilities and avenues with which to take my business as Philiy has a friendly and positive approach but is always realistic about your businesses potential too. If you’re looking for advice and guidance in helping build your creative business I would definitely recommend Philiy.

My mentoring session was amazing! I can’t recommend Philiy enough if you’re feeling a bit stuck and looking for a fresh perspective around your creative path. So good!

Thank you Philiy
by Frankie J Finn
I’ve found so much inspiration from this Podcast. Philiy breaks down problems that can seem insurmountable into digestible pieces so you can see through to the other side. I particularly recommend this to anyone who’s biggest obstacle is overcoming their doubts about what they do. It’s great at putting fears and concerns into context and suggesting practical solutions. 

Spot on supportive advice and expertise

These podcasts are little gems of brilliant support and advice for creative women at various stages of their careers. They feel like an encouraging push to keep on going, especially for people working by themselves. Thank you and well done! Looking forward to the next 🙂

Really useful for men too
by MJLKemp
I’ve been listening to these podcasts and learning some gems of information to use in business and in life in general. It’s mainly directed towards women obviously, but it’s definitely useful for men too. Philiy Page has a great manner, clearly from experience, and speaks in a way that’s informative, uplifting and you certainly don’t feel you are being preached to. Actually you want to listen to more.
