The PYP Freelance Business Development Summit is the brainchild of former makeup hair and styling agent, and Hair Makeup & Fashion Styling Career Guide author Crystal Wright.
In 2013, after 24 years of representing and teaching freelance beauty, fashion, nail and photography pros how to launch, sustain and develop their businesses Crystal realized that she should provide the essential and fundamental skills these talented artists needed to be successful in their chosen field of excellence.
“I have identified the key components and designed the Summit to provide an industry insiders insight into how to gain beneficial representation, how to build portfolios that clients appreciate and how to ensure artist’s talents are focused on the things that matter to creative decision-makers.”
After years of facilitating one-on-one coaching programs, industry seminars, PYP workshops, and speaking engagements Wright found common themes, skill gaps and misconceptions existed. “I was in the privileged position to provide advice and training that could close these gaps and improve the business skills of freelance artists. I could see the needs," she said. "Artists need help building and then sustaining their businesses. I find many artists lack the skills to reinvent themselves in the constantly changing work environment. They want representation but don’t know how to get the best and most appropriate agents, or they are stuck in agency relationships that aren't going anywhere––the Summit is going to change that.”
