Our Education 03
About us, Act Development

Our Education

It is a long established fact that Entertainers do not share information.

We aim to change the cloak and daggers image of the entertainment industry. For too long entertainers have seen it as competition and so rarely share information which could benefit others. We aim to provide courses, seminars and membership areas to share the information to allow entertainers to improve and supercharge their entertainment business.
