FREEDOM! That is the first thing that freelancers talk about when asked why they became a freelancer. Why work in an office when you can work from anywhere in the world with just a laptop and an Internet connection? While the benefits are many, the challenge is managing clients, money, time, copyrights and yourself.
Join us, for a one-day bootcamp to learn from seasoned professionals – Patrick Gan, Michael Ng and Rukshan Perera, on how to survive freelancing in the creative industries.
· Freelancing basics such as contracts and invoices
· Managing yourself
· Managing clients and projects
· Understanding what it’s like managing freelancers from the client’s POV.
We will also have the first of it’s kind – portfolio sharing sessions and 1-to-1 portfolio clinics with mentors, to help develop your portfolio to best represent your skills set to potential clients.
Lastly, of course, we have networking – it’s not what you know, it’s who you know! 😉
Date: 29th June 2016
Time: 8.45am – 5.30pm (Breakfast provided!)
Venue: *SCAPE Level 5
