What is The Design Trust?
The Design Trust was set up in 1994 by the late Peta Levi MBE to provide business training to craftspeople and designers. In 2011 creative business adviser and trainer Patricia van den Akker turned the organisation into an online business school for designers and makers, providing specialist and practical business training to makers across the UK and overseas, attracting 50K visits/month on www.thedesigntrust.co.uk.
Patricia has worked for over 20 years with 1,000s of designers and makers through practical and thought-provoking workshops and talks at major events and at many universities across the UK. She has worked with craft fair and trade show organisers such as Made London, Handmade in Britain, GNCCF, Top Drawer/Craft London. She provides coaching for the Crafts Council and for the last 5 years wrote the business column The Design Doctor for Crafts Magazine.
She is known for her inspiring, practical but strategic approach to creative business development. She loves to boost your business and marketing knowledge, but more importantly increases your confidence and gets you into action to turn your new insights into a better business.
