How to Freelance Successfully: Finance and Networking for Creatives...
12/10/2017

The day will be split in half, with the morning workshop dedicated to finance, and the afternoon to networking tips.

Lead by experienced broadcaster David Thomas, delegates will learn the difference between types of freelance status (PAYE, sole traders, limited companies, partnerships), how tax and NI works for freelancing, how to manage (and log) personal and business expenses, what records to keep, how to save time on paperwork including drawing up simple – and clear – agreements between themselves and clients, how to invoice effectively and getting paid on time (including drawing on the UK’s late payment legislation to ensure cash flow), know what to ask an accountant – and what they can (and can’t) do for you, how to think like a business and where to get financial and business advice.

David also provides a series of tools and techniques to help freelancers network effectively including how to build professional relationships over time, how to describe their own skills in a more engaging way, how to engage in face to face networking with more self-confidence, how to make best use of digital networking (and how it complements face to face interactions), and how to draw up a networking plan.

The session will involve group exercises and highlight how networking works and why people often get it wrong.

David’s approach is to make potentially dry subjects accessible, enjoyable, and inspirational, with plenty of exercises, examples and practical tips. Delegates will also get access to a secure website with downloadable tip sheets and tools.

The day will run from 9am to 6pm. Don't miss out!

Refreshments included.
