Just to share, in the moment, the exhilarating experience of the freelance (FL) sessions. More information and photos to come.
As the EMWA Freelance Advocate I was the driving force behind the introduction of a new initiative for freelancers (FLs): an interactive IT, social media and productivity tools session – Show IT, Share IT, Rise and Shine. Thank you to the Table Leaders and all participants in this trial run. A great success!
When our Freelancers have good ideas, as their Freelance Advocate, I make it happen for them.
An extended Freelance Business Forum (FBF) took place in the evening.
I presented updates on the evolution of the FBF and related activities. FBF initiatives are really taking off! We have been busy – great progress in many different areas.
I was delighted that Marco Torregrossa, Secretary General at the European Forum for Independent Professionals, accepted my invitation to be our FBF guest speaker. Marco gave an inspiring and informative presentation. A lively question period ensued. Marco stayed on for our Table discussions to learn more about freelancing in our profession, enabling him to take into account the challenges that our FLs encounter, when he contributes to policy development at the European level.
The Table discussion period – goes from strength to strength. Thank you to Table Leaders. This session works so well – discussion of hot topics and frank, open and productive exchanges between FLs. It was a stimulating and friendly networking environment.
Special thanks to the conference organising teams and AV support.
