Freelancers will have the chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones as they network, swap notes or maybe just have a moan over a glass of wine and nibbles.
Experts will be on hand to provide one-to-one advice on tax and websites and you’ll even have the chance to update your byline photograph — or get a new one — for a fraction of the cost of arranging one independently. Photographs will be taken by Trevor Aston, who some of you may know from the Awards and other events. Images will be available via a password protected web link after the event. You can then simply chose the shots you want. Photoshop enhancement will be available for an additional charge, which you can agree with Trevor.
Tomek Wojcik will be on hand to provide tips on websites and SEO. He is the MD of Sumobaby Digital, a former web developer for Lycos Europe and Senior Search Engine Optimisation Manager at AOL.
We have booked private rooms at Champagne Charlies, which is just off Villiers Street, near Charing Cross, from 4pm to 8pm, with the idea that members drop in when they can.
Spaces, however, are limited — and if you want a byline photo (after a mini hair and make-up make-over) there will be a charge of £20. It will also help us if you can indicate when you are likely to arrive so we can try to avoid bottle-necks.
Priority will be given to working freelancers, but members who are considering the freelance life are also welcome —however it is essential to confirm you place by completing the RSVP form below.
