Shifted My Perspective

Elliot Wallton

Really insightful feedback from him on my questions covering: price matrix's, agencies/ self sourced work and website/ branding! Helped clear things up, gave me a lot to think about, shifted some perspectives that I have been struggling with recently and spurred some much needed critical thinking! Nice one Josh, thanks very much for your time today!
Gaia Ward

I've come away feeling encouraged and positive about the steps i need to take

Gaia Ward

Super easy to talk to, answered all my question succinctly, with honestly and transparency which I really appreciated. Nice to have had such a beneficial conversation, packed with information and useful tips, that didn't feel totally sterile and 'business like', just friendly and to the point! We covered methods of sourcing independent work, networking and how to price yourself, amongst other things; I've come away feeling encouraged and positive about the steps i need to take.
Aaron Howorth

Valuable insight into the industry

Aaron Howorth

Managed to cover multiple questions I had regarding how to go about starting in the industry. He was clear and to the point and provided a number of useful resources that could potentially be of benefit in helping me go further as a fire performer. Highly recommend and can’t wait to chat with the other mentors, too gain more valuable insight into the industry.

Achievable short term and long term tasks

Liz Atherton

We were able to cover quite a range of topics and markets in such a short space of time. I came away with achievable short term and long term tasks/ goals that I think will lead quickly to bookings. I'm really looking forward to the course and hearing from the other tutors.

How To Make Myself More Employable

Lucinda Zimmer

I had a 30 minute mentoring session with Josh over the phone and he was so helpful in just 30 minutes of chat. He answered all my questions and gave me some very useful tips on how to make myself more employable, specifically for cruise ship work. He even offered to critique my pitch over email which I will be sending to him in due course. He was very helpful and friendly and I would definitely recommend!
Ed Mondo

Amazingly knowledgeable and hit the mark on the head

Ed Mondo

I found Josh Morris to be amazingly knowledgeable and hit the mark on the head with exactly what I need to do to correct my current processes in finding performing work. And this was just from a 30 min 1-1 via Skype, I very much look forward to where I’ll be after the 3 day course!
Stanley Styx

Wow! This course delivered everything I hoped it would and about as much again!

Stanley Styx

With so many incredibly high end agents and specialist tutors in every conceivable area of performing, I absolutely marvel at how good value this course was for my time and money. Apart from the very first day of picking up the disciplines, these were easily the best days of my lifetime for career advancement in circus. Thanks to Josh and everyone involved for putting it on. If you weren't there for the last one, hound him to let you on the next go round, you will 100% not regret it!

This course offers the kind of industry knowledge money couldn't buy - until now.

Julia Cormack-Cooke

This course offers the kind of industry knowledge money couldn't buy - until now. I went into it with no expectations - I walked out of it wondering why the course wasn't 10x more expensive. Every single tutor offered valuable insights, presented clearly. It was wonderful to see how much passion went into creating and delivering the program, from every single person who was part of it. Whether you're at the very beginning of your career - or 10 years in, I am confident you will learn something useful from this. Also, I would find out how to sign up to pre-book; it is 100% worth making sure you grab a place. Thank you to everyone, but especially to Josh Morris - you are a huge inspiration to us all, thank you for creating this.
