PWWIYC Immediate Update / 16th March 2020:  In this time of uncertainty CGO is offering skype/zoom surgeries or coaching on a ‘Pay What You Can’ or maybe a ‘Pay When You Can’ or If you can (PWWIYC) rather than ‘on the ground’ face to face sessions.  Just email chris [at] chrisgrady [dot] org for a time.  Other events, like Producers’ Pool, are being planned to occur as normal, but we are creating ‘in the cloud’ digital gathering solutions. We need each other. We need to keep safe, and somehow we need to stay – Glass Half Full with help from our amazing community.

And now back to the normal introduction…

We help you make connections – internal ones, with your self and your ambitions; and external ones, with the business or world that you wish to explore.  We coach, we teach, we consult/produce projects, and we facilitate conferences and trans-national/sector connections.  Chris’s history is in and around the theatre/event/charity/festival business, but our clients come from many sectors including the arts, wellness/holistic practice, University departments, SMEs, sole-trading in legal/accounting and beyond.

CGO offers creative business life support and we help you make connections. 

We offer a wide range of coaching methods to get your personal and professional life moving in the direction you want, supported by over 30 years of personal experience in marketing and business management for SMEs, charity and the creative industries.

Dr Kath Burlinson and Chris work closely with other experienced business coaches, to deliver one-on-one sessions, group seminars and surgery sessions in the UK as well as by Skype from their Edinburgh and London base, and in person internationally.

CGO works as a theatre/project producer and trains/mentors others in the business of the arts

Chris established the MA in Creative Producing at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and has now established the CGO Institute to offer bespoke Diploma courses for creative disciplines. He works with many of the graduates on new projects, as well as leading producer networks and research projects linked to creativity and connection.  We are developing training in China, South Korea and Russia with partners, and masterclasses in the UK.
