How to get yourself 'out there'

Notes 1

Notes 2 & 3

I think Enterprise is going to be really useful and I am really happy we get taught this.

Design Council
The Design Council carry out all major research into pattern of employement and income in the design industry.

Value Proposition
My value proposition should be short, specific, use my audience language and pass the 'gut feeling test'.

After the seminar I had an Enterprise workshop where I worked out my cost of living for after my degree. I thought I would enjoy this but it just made me a bit sad. How am I going to earn £30,000?!

Baby, i'm back and I like bread

The 'good' workshop with Lorenzo opened up my mind into thinking more abstract about what is good. Over summer I picked something pretty rigid to research and I enjoyed learning about it, but from a purely selfish point. I didn't enjoy telling others what I had found and couldn't be persuasive in my argument. I have to think about things which people could see as reasons why something is not good and be able to argue my side more effectively. I also want to chose something which I can look at in different ways and compile my own primary research about.

I tried to make a list of 100 things I thought were good... then realised I think everything is good.

I think bread is good.
I chose bread because it is probably what I eat most of and HAVE to have it in my cupboard. There is so much variety of bread that there is something for everyone. Bread is just a word to use to collect all the doughy goodness together.
