Find your voice & writing style with Cortney McDermott
During the first day Cortney led everyone in finding their voice and bringing out their unique style in writing accompanied by interactive exercises. She shared expert advice and tips on telling stories and writing content ideas, using some of her core pillars coming out in her new book "Change Starts within You".
Johann DePietri, a favourite Instagrammer in Venice was our special guest. Johann guided us to explore the canals with the eyes of a local reminding us to also see the beauty in wherever we live. He shared his Instagram secrets and taught us to look at things from a different angle just as his dear wife inspired him to see beauty in everyday life. Johann is a self-taught photographer that has clearly developed his signature style capturing Venice through “reflections" and “the water” beautifully shown on his Instagram feed @depietrijojo.

Meeting Curious minds
Cortney and I were really inspired meeting such a special group of women active in the world of styling, wellness, blogging and creative entrepreneurs.
During these two days we shared the foundation steps to transform their creative business and create space for it to unfold. It was a moment for everyone to speak their mind, allowing themselves to give vision to ideas and express their creative self or personal identity.
Your personal branding with Katherine Suarez
Personal identity comes from within. During the second day, many exercises were focused on refining a "personal vision" and "understanding whom we are". The session began with exploring our inner world through our senses, moodboarding and understanding how to find our own unique style in whatever we do. To then discussing how to curate content on Instagram and styling our brand whether it is to tell visual stories about projects, our portfolio or simply sharing personal moments.
