InOz 13 - sunrise over Byronternational Connections

Through our experience working with a wide range of businesses and professionals across the globe, we have developed useful professional networks. Chris’s own background in the arts field has allowed us to make creative and empowering connections for businesses and arts groups across the globe.

These international connections have resulted in CGO being asked to work on some fascinating projects and artistic business developments for individuals and groups all over the world. We are, or have been recently, involved in projects such as:

Dao Strategy – working with Dao Strategy in Bejiing, China and Dama Asia in Malaysia we are preparing a range of project proposals for new creative collaborations, after hosting 22 Chinese theatre owners and producers in London during Nov 2017, followed by further producer/theatre owners to New York Apr 2018 and Edinburgh Aug 2018. In Nov 2018 CGO presented at the International Forum on Musical Theatre in Beijing and taught masterclasses in Beijing and Guangzhou.  2019/20 projects are in plans
