Event Details

Are you a budding freelancer looking for motivation and practical insight? Have you been plugging away for a few years and need to get that spark and passion back? Then join our evening class with successful entrepreneurs and talent coaches.

Remember when you were an excited freelancer, dreaming about working from a beach on your downtime? A year on – maybe after your first dark January and February – working alone, with a deluge of deadlines and unpaid invoices, life seems a lot less rosy. But you’re not alone.

This session will help you rediscover your initial enthusiasm, while covering the big questions, such as: what am I doing this for? How do I cope with the current economic, social and political climate? Can I build a business in the future? Am I looking after my wellbeing?

This masterclass will be delivered the Freelancer Bootcamp series curator and award-winning businesswoman Natalie Campbell, consultant Samantha Clarke, podcaster and coach Mark Leruste and special guests, followed by a Q&A.

See here for the full programme of the Freelancer Bootcamp series.
