Pollen is dead. Long live Nocci.

I’m really proud and pleased to announce the “re-launch” of Nocci, the network for the creative industries. It started in a small way in Cardiff last year, but now we’re rolling it out across the UK and beyond. It used to be called Pollen. But now it’s not!

The site is still a little bit of a work in progress, but I’m so chuffed with it as it stands. I have to thank the brilliant Marc and Milen for putting in such great work on it. I can’t recommend both of them highly enough.

Please check out the new site, sign up and get involved with the forum. We’re also looking for people to run Pollen events in their part of the UK/world.

Also, I have to say that I am *stupidly* excited by the news that Stevie Wonder is doing some dates in the UK in September. I’ll do whatever it takes to get tickets!

p.s. If you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “nocky”.

Chamber of Commerce – What about creative?

The Cardiff Chamber of Commerce has recently seen some tough times, and is currently looking to restart after the liquidators were called in.

There are calls for the new chamber to focus on international trade, but I don’t hear anybody talking about a focus upon the rapidly growing creative sector. There is a massive opportunity for a fresh chamber to lend it’s support to the creative industries within Wales and truly represent the wide-ranging business community across the country.
