It's our 8th Birthday event!
Exhibit at this event, offer pampering, showcase your business, bring your products, offer mini sessions, enjoy the networking, benefit from the UK speaker Annabel Kaye, LOVE the results!
How safely are you trading? Do you know what a REAL agreement can do to help you grow?
Do you believe any of these?
- We don’t have a contract if there is nothing in writing
- I don’t have to provide anything in writing to clients
- My freelance team invoice me so they are all self-employed
- Freelance workers have no legal rights
If you said yes to any one of these then you need get up to speed.
This workshop is something you rarely see
And about Law (with a bit of tax too!)
This is not boring stuff but real stories of real business owners who didn’t understand how to make REAL agreements and how it affected their growth, combined with some real learning for you on:
- How to protect your business by putting something in writing
- How to make your business potentially saleable and scaleable from an early stage
You will leave this masterclass understanding how to avoid:
- Trouble with the tax man a few years down the road
- Paying for things you find out you don’t own
- Getting a case like Uber or the Amazon drivers where you unexpectedly owe minimum wage and holiday pay to your freelancers
You can raise your own questions - there will be plenty of time for questions and answers – and even claim a free review of your own terms of business or the contracts you use to pay freelancers. This is not about sales or marketing but about how to create something that helps you deliver reliably time after time and maximise benefits of the hard work you are doing.
Getting this right can save you so much pain and heartache later on.
Why Annabel is our expert
Annabel started her career in PR (non-profit) before moving on to publishing and consumer law (Which? magazine) followed by advertising and HR.She founded Irenicon in 1980 (an employment law and HR consultancy) and has spent the intervening years helping some of the largest organisations in the UK (and some of the smallest) sort out the people and employment law issues that come with change.
She founded KoffeeKlatch in 2009 specifically to support organisations outsourcing to freelancers. Her practical expertise in outsourcing to VAs, web designers, bookkeepers, trainers and more, is a key part of her speaker's story. She still advises businesses from the smallest to the largest on how to contract and manage their teams and how to create REAL flexibility that doesn't hurt.
Old enough to be a grandmother, mother of millennials, a happy explorer of the gap between compliance and wiggle room, her witty persona makes light of the experience and learning that underpins her wisdom.
She loves delivering online and in the room - and is a keen user of social media. She maintains an average 'Klout' score of 68 and actively promotes where she is booked to speak at with her social media connections. You will even get a little video promo too. Her KoffeeKlatch guides can be customised for you and where appropriate her KoffeeKlatch agreements can be offered at discounts to The Insiders. She can even organise a longer term affiliate relationship for you if you are building a community to support growing businesses.
