The RIBA is excited to launch the recruitment process for the role of Creative Directorship of the 2016 ‘Guerrilla Tactics’ small practice conference. We are looking for a committed individual with an existing profile within the world of design or the built environment, with a proven track record for innovation, creativity and thought-leadership.
The Guerrilla Tactics conference has grown rapidly since it was established in 2004, and is now one of the largest RIBA member events, attended by over 250 delegates, mainly drawn from small practices. The one-day programme, designed to develop the essential business and management skills needed to succeed, has become a must-attend event in the annual calendar for small practitioners. The challenge for 2016 is to maintain high attendance at the event and to attract an even wider audience, particularly younger and newly qualified small practitioners.
For 2016, the Guerrilla Tactics conference will be the focus of a week-long initiative ‘Small Practice Week.’ The week will seek to provide small practices with business learning and will form a part of the 2016 RIBA Professional Programme, titled ‘Smart Practice’.
The Creative Director will be responsible for developing the specific theme, programme and content of the 2016 Guerrilla Tactics conference day and help source mentors for a speed-mentoring evening event. The role will require a commitment of up to 15 days between March and November 2016 and will be paid a fee of £6,000 in instalments.
