Home / Build Greater Relationships with Soft Business Skills: Learn Best Practices from Your Peers!

At the Freelance Forum, it’s all Business Casual –
until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!

Build Greater Relationships with Soft Business Skills: Learn Best Practices from Your Peers!

08/04/2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Our programming chair and writer extraordinaire, Helen Anne Richards, will moderate a rollicking Q&A evening with Freelance Forum members and guests. It’s a great opportunity to learn from the experts — and each other! We’ll explore smart tips for:

  • Handling difficult people
  • Communicating more effectively
  • Negotiating successfully (‘Getting to Yes’)
  • Working well on a team
  • Managing scope creep
  • And much more!

Bring the questions that stump you the most about any aspect of your business, and let’s get them resolved! Conversely, if you’ve acquired solid people skills such as:

  • Selling/presenting to a tough audience
  • Cold-calling and networking
  • Dealing with unexpected business situations
  • Managing challenging personalities, etc.

Then, this is the perfect event to share your advice with others!


Please join us Thursday evening, August 4th, at 6:30 for convivial conversation, scrumptious food and lively networking, and learn numerous interpersonal skills that you can incorporate right away to improve and grow your own business relationships!
