About Tomorrow: How to Be More Productive as a FreelancerBy Angelica Malin
Fancy making new freelance friends in London? Thinking about going freelance but not sure where to start? Want to learn how to be more productive as a freelancer? As part of our About Tomorrow 2018 Festival, our next event for creative freelancers in the capital is for you. Introducing: Young, Wild & Freelance, the hottest new community for freelancers in London. The theme for our next meet-up is productivity and planning – how to be more effective as a freelancer, how to work smarter, not harder, and how to build your freelance portfolio.
We know it can be hard and lonely at times to be freelance, and what we really need is people around you, to support and encourage you. But finding those people can be more trickier than you imagine, and we want to make it even easier to connect with other creative minds, freelancer and self-employed professionals in London. And hey, we don’t discriminate if you have a 9-5 too, we’re happy for anyone who has a creative side project or passion to join the fun. At our next Young, Wild & Freelance event, you will have the opporunity to experience:
– A delicious breakfast by a top London caterer
– A networking session with fellow creative freelancers
– A problem-solving group discussion around this month’s theme: productivity and planning
– A Q&A panel with some of London’s top creative freelancers (speakers to be announced shortly)
– A goodie bag filled with all kinds of delights to take away
– Access to the Young, Wild & Freelance private Facebook group for advice and support
