PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING
OTHER SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS
TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE!
My name is Derryn and I am a creative business owner. I have run my own successful photography business for over eight years, Let’s Talk (formerly Hooray Workshops) for nearly four years and I am involved in numerous other businesses.
Let’s Talk about all things business, including personal growth and development, so that we can each find joy and enjoy success together.
If you would like to know more about me and what my purpose is with Let’s Talk, then keep reading, otherwise head straight to the blog and get into the juicy stuff.
LET'S TALK COMMUNITY
Learning is great! Developing the skills necessary to run a successful business is essential, and the workshops and courses offered here are an excellent way to help you to take your business to the next level.
I’d like to invite you to join the Let’s Talk Facebook group. Interact with a bunch of like-minded professionals so that you can ask questions, look for referrals, start conversations and lean on a group of people who are in the same space as you.
SO MUCH MORE THAN WORKSHOPS
The community surrounding Let’s Talk is just as important as the workshops themselves. You meet other small business owners, who know the struggle and can truly understand what you are going through. Running your own business can be lonely. Let’s Talk connects you to like-minded people and you become part of a community.
connect with others who get you
Not only do you meet fellow small business owners at the workshops, but you also become part of the Let’s Talk Facebook community.
There have been workshops where the attendees have enjoyed each other’s company, helpful advice and support so much, that a private Facebook group has been created to stay in touch and help implement what was learnt.
Let’s Talk workshops provide a perfect place to network, as we are so often each other’s clients and customers. You can get some easy market research done in one friendly place.
WORK ON YOUR BUSINESS,
NOT IN YOUR BUSINESS.
Invest in your success by taking the time to focus on your business. It’s so easy to get caught up in working in you business, keeping up with the day-to-day tasks and being swept up with the hustle (a word I detest), that we forget to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.
Its important to acknowledge that you are a business owner, and so you need to create goals, follow through on plans and truly build your business rather than merely treading water. In other words, you need to create space and time to wear the CEO hat.
Be the boss that you are and spend a day developing your skills and mingling with fellow #letstalkbosses.
FROM PAST WORKSHOPS
Each workshop is uniquely crafted by Derryn and her collaborators. It’s not just a workshop; it’s an event.
Incredible venues, amazing decor, delectable food and the yummiest of treats all contribute to the welcoming and professional vibe of these workshops.
You are not only empowered with knowledge and skills to tackle your business and personal challenges, but you leave each workshop feeling like you have been on a retreat: inspired and energized.
