Portfolio Profile: Deborah Henry-Pollard

Deborah Henry-Pollard

Please describe your average working day/week. Mmmm – that is a problem as there isn’t anything average about my working life. The closest to average that I get is the beginning of the week which tends to be when I do my general management work for one client. However, within that, I could be writing a funding bid, devising a 3 year strategy, designing a leaflet, writing a newsletter, bookings gigs, selling tickets, updating a website… I work with clients I am coaching or mentoring and these sessions are very intense and demand a great deal of concentration. I try to plan these fairly evenly, but as it is important to fit in with my clients, I might find myself with either none or five sessions in a week. I do ad hoc promotional work with a dance club and with groups to support other people in their portfolio working. And I also spend time promoting and planning for my business.
