The UK has the largest creative sector in Europe, and government and business increasingly recognise its importance in generating jobs, wealth and public engagement. It is therefore critical to understand the key particularities and principles in managing the skill and talent that power sectors such as advertising, architecture, art and crafts, design, film and video, music, theatre and the performing arts, publishing, TV and radio, and computing and digital design.
