Project Case Studies
Most of my clients work in areas that inspire me. Some are in the arts, heritage and creative industries. Others are community-based social enterprises. Quite a few are in hospitality and tourism. I also work with SMEs from various sectors who simply want to grow.
You might come to Iridescence because you’ve got a great idea, some untapped potential, a thirst for funding or the need to increase profitability. Or maybe you just feel you could be doing things better? So why not get in touch and we can discuss what I might be able to do to help.
