As champions of contractors, freelancers, and the self-employed we’re delighted to announce that we’ve joined the list of sponsors for National Freelancers Day 2017. With the number of self-employed workers in the UK increasing year on year their contribution to the economic landscape of the UK continues to grow.
Thursday 8th June will mark the 9th annual NFD celebration. Curated and hosted by our good friends at IPSE, this year’s event will take place at King’s Place in central London (right next to King’s Cross station). Whether you’re a student designer or a veteran engineer, there’ll be something for you.
The day includes a number of masterclasses, seminars, and workshops on a variety of important freelancer topics including how to win work, how to set and maximise your rates, and how to deal with working globally in a post-Brexit world. In addition to that there’ll be a panel session with previous IPSE Awards winners and freelancing champions sharing key insights. You can find the full programme and timings here.
NFD is important for a number of reasons. Not only does it raise the profile and voice of freelancers across the UK, but it will give you the knowledge and the tools you need to set up in business, keep your books in order and quickly find new contracts. IPSE will also be on hand to help navigate a complex tax landscape and answer legal questions.
There’ll be a stellar array of freelancing experts from globally recognised brands, all of whom will be sharing top tips and advice in a series of sessions throughout the day. Attendees can pick and choose the talks that suit them, and will find plenty of time for drinks and networking in between.
