On 8th June we attended this year’s National Freelancers Day. We couldn’t have been prouder. Although we’ve attended several in the past, IPSE’s flagship event was bigger and better than ever before. In tandem with the ever-growing number of contractors and freelancers in the UK, NFD has grown from a relatively small gathering to a multi-site behemoth with over 20 events across the UK this year.
As vocal and avid supporters of the self-employed ourselves, we’re strong advocates of the excellent work IPSE put in to get their voices heard. This year’s NFD welcomed over 400 attendees, a testament, as IPSE note, “to the growing strength and importance of the freelancing community.”
You can listen to award winners, finalists, and other key figures from the day talking about their favourite moments, their overall impressions, and why exactly they think it’s important to celebrate freelancers every year right here.
We took a few snaps our of own too. Our cupcakes and bespoke writing pads went down a treat (helped somewhat by some excellent stand positioning next to a portrait photographer). We spoke to a number of freelancers and contractors who were overpaying for the insurance cover they had. For the most comprehensive and compliant cover on the market, why not try Kingsbridge? We’re so confident that you won’t find better cover elsewhere that we even offer a price promise guarantee. Take a look at a few more from our day below:
