Freelancers across Europe are coming together to organize and improve their opportunities. This event brings together freelancers to network, get practical tips on growing their business, and learn about campaigns.
The European Freelancers’ Movement is a project of EFIP, the network of organizations representing independent workers. Roadshow events will be held in Berlin, London, Zagreb and further cities.
Keynote presentation: John Niland – Talking about Money
Most successful freelancers have found that one of the most powerful shifts they made in their business was how they spoke about their fees. A few simple skills can add thousands to annual revenue, for a minimum of extra effort.
At the same time, we all work in an economy where purchasers have become equally adept at reducing rates… often by pitting freelancers against each other. So what do you need to learn to obtain more value from the hours that you work?
In this session, John Niland (patron of EFIP) will give examples of the common pitfalls to avoid. Using real-life case studies, he will demonstrate how freelancers can often double their rates by learning some basic conversation skills about money.
More speakers to be announced.
Free for members of the VGSD (www.vgsd.de) and other EFIP organizations.
