National Freelancers Day 2016
The annual National Freelancers Day returns for 2016 with a new date and new format, completely free of charge!
On Thursday 9th June we will be taking over the Hospital Club in Covent Garden to celebrate the UK’s most exciting, driven and enterprising self-employed people. The day has been redesigned and extended to give practical advice on how to be at the top of your game with interactive workshops, one to one sessions and networking opportunities as well as acting as a celebration. We will have activities running through the day and for the third year running we will end the event with our IPSE-QA Freelancer Awards where we recognise and reward the UK’s best independent minds. Registration for the event as well as for our workshop and seminar slots are now open so please register now for your chosen sessions and the awards ceremony to help us celebrate National Freelancers Day.
This year we have developed the programme for National Freelancers Day to give you the opportunity to gain practical skills with our interactive workshops.
We will also be running one-to-one advice sessions with our affiliates and partners from 3.30pm until 5pm with 10 minute bookable slots. Details on who will be available for this one-to-one advice and how to book onto these sessions will soon be announced.
There will be a lounge area with refreshments available during the event allowing you time and space to catch up on emails and current projects.
