Alexis is the managing director and co-founder of Big Creative Training Ltd.
Alexis Michaelides first began teaching event promotions to a small group of young people in East London in 1999, under the name Dv8 Training. Sixteen years on and Big Creative Training has extended its vision of transformative education through Big Creative Academy – a school for creative and media excellence in London, founded in 2014.
The journey was based on the principle that young people who want to get into the creative industries are more likely to succeed if they have access to great facilities and are taught by inspirational teachers with industry knowledge and experience. This formula has worked at Big Creative Training and slowly but surely has created a strong reputation for delivering high quality courses and providing a stimulating environment that supports and respects its students.
The media and creative industries are a massive sector for the UK and produce some of the most talented music producers, artists, fashion designers, filmmakers and event producers in the world. Big Creative intends to contribute to this UK success story.
