'I found the Creative Direction session with Rachael Chambers to be absolutely invaluable, it was great to be able to get some constructive feedback on my work and products, and I found the advice I gained from the day priceless. It really helped me focus on what I needed to do for my upcoming first trade fair, how to present my work and I got some great ideas for displaying it too. I think if I hadn’t had this session my trade fair wouldn’t have been such a success, it helped me to be well prepared and also to gain a valuable insight into what my buyers would be looking for.'
