Write three / four paragraphs, each about a different topic. For example about innovations in Creative Businesses (Value Proposition [topic 1], Value Chain [topic 2], Markets [topic 3]) OR about the characteristics of Creative Business (CREATIVITY[topic 1], TECHNOLOGY [topic 2], HUMANITY [topic 3] BUSINESS [topic 4]). (These two examples are here to help you out, you’re free to do define your own topics as long as you’re able to describe the information requested in the rubric).
Introduce each paragraph with a topic sentence explaining what the paragraph is about and what is its central point (for example ‘the company needs to optimize their experiences’). After the topic sentence, you expand on the central point with evidence and examples. Include 2 to 3 supporting points per paragraph (for example ‘experience doesn’t engage all senses’).
