Show Off Your Work! Get to Know Other Freelancers!

Eventbrite - Freelance Forum's 2019 Summer Showcase

One of the biggest benefits of the Freelance Forum is networking and being able to refer business to each other. But with so many new members, it’s hard to know WHO can do WHAT.

So we’ve decided to start a new tradition—the SUMMER SHOWCASE.

At our June meeting, the entire evening’s presentation will be delivered by YOU and all the other freelancers
in attendance.

Show off your latest print campaigns. Your favorite videos. Your photography. Your illustrations. Your website designs. Whatever you’re proud of.

Summer Showcase. It’s Like “Show & Tell” for Creative Freelancers.

Do you HAVE to present something? No, of course not. But why would you pass up an opportunity like this to show potential colleagues what you can do and possibly connect with future collaborators?

HERE’S HOW IT’S GOING TO WORK: 

1. SEND US YOUR STUFF
It can be videos, website screengrabs, PDFs, photo files—whatever you want to present to the group. Also include your name, creative specialty, website URL and email address. Deadline is WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12.

2. YOU GET A FIVE MINUTE LIMIT
So only send us what you can present within that time.

3. ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE—MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS
When it comes to looking at great creative, the more the merrier.

4. WE’LL ALSO POST ON OUR WEBSITE—FOR MEMBERS ONLY
It’s an extra perk for our members. If you’ve got a problem with that, feel free to join (C’mon, it’s only 95 bucks a year!).

CONTACT INFO
Send your files to Harry Hayes—hhayes@me.com.
If it’s too big to email, use wetransfer.com (up to 2 GB for free).

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!
