Innovative Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson is set to inspire and inform local creative entrepreneurs at the ‘Etsy Success Sydney’ event, to be held in June.
The special summit, being held as part of Vivid Sydney 2012, will connect innovative entrepreneurs and help them adapt to changes in the new economy.
As CEO of the handmade online marketplace, Dickerson will outline his personal strategy for innovation in the summit’s keynote address, ‘Finding Your Courage’.
The event will mark Dickerson’s first visit to Australia and provide him with an opportunity to meet Sydney’s vibrant Etsy community.
“We’ve made big strides in internationalisation and we’re really excited about the momentum on all fronts — with buyers, sellers, developers, and partners,” Dickerson said.
“We’re more committed than ever to help Etsy sellers around the world become even more successful in 2012,” he added.
The Etsy CEO will be joined by a host of local innovative thinkers, who will reveal their success secrets. Topics range from starting a business, to team and media management, networking, entrepreneurship and online selling.
The event will also feature panel discussions with Australian Etsy sellers and practical workshops for entrepreneurs to hone their creative skills.
‘Etsy Success Sydney’ is running on 2 June as part of the Vivid Ideas program at Vivid Sydney 2012.
Tickets for the event are expected to sell quickly, and are available here.
