You’ll also discover the smart way to choose and partner with the PR person who’s the perfect fit for you — and an important resource for your clients. Don’t miss this insightful evening on leveraging the power of PR for your business!

Ed and Debbie are co-authors of Megaphones Be With You: How Your Organization Can Play the Media Relations Game – And Win. There will be a special drawing at the end of the night for a FREE copy of their valuable new book!

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!
