Creating a dedicated social media following can help immeasurably for a career in creativity. Each member of our panel has taken a different approach to building their ‘tribe’ of fans, friends and event business clients – a community that can be rewarding in all kinds of ways.

Abdullah Al Jumah’s Twitter followers proved a source of inspiration and support both on his travels and in the writing of Tales of a Saudi in Europe.

Nisha Katona built a dedicated following on YouTube with her introductions to curry cooking. They have become loyal supporters of her books and her restaurant, Mowgli.

Kerby Rosanes’ intricate art is perfectly suited to online art communities from Instagram to DeviantArt, and he has built a freelance career using the creative social and professional network Behance.

Pimp My Rice: Lunch with Nisha Katona

Event 151 Friday 3 March, 1pm-3pm Vista, InterContinental

Authors: Nisha Katona
“In the West we treat this grain of grains like a second class citizen. Its cooking techniques confound Western adults when in the East, children can cook it before they can pronounce it.” – Nisha Katona

20 years after making a name for herself as the first female Indian barrister in the North West of the UK, Nisha Katona has exchanged life at the Bar for her lifelong passion for authentic Indian cuisine.

Don’t miss an opportunity to hear how Nisha established a worldwide following through her YouTube channel ‘Twitter Curry Clinics’, became the author of debut cookbook Pimp My Rice and established her restaurant, Mowgli Street Food. Expect to learn why rice deserves more of our attention while tasting recipes from a book which shows off this beloved grain’s best assets.

Dress code: smart/casual.
