How to prepare for the biggest event for freelancers

Find answers to your questions about the Freelance Business Month
The Freelance Business Month is almost here, starting on 1 October, and we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make the most out of this opportunity. This article will cover the most important aspects of the event, such as the structure, the event platform and how to connect with others. Let's begin!

What is Freelance Business Month?

Freelance Business Month is a month-long event, dedicated to uniting the freelance ecosystem of independent workers, contractors, service providers, recruiters, and anyone interested in the opportunities this segment of workers has to offer. It aims to raise the voice of the freelance community while teaching, inspiring and connecting independent professionals from all around the globe.

The event will take place between 1 and 31 October 2021 and will offer plenty of opportunities to meet like-minded freelancers and expand your network, while learning from top industry experts. Last year's event saw speakers who have worked with companies like Google, Microsoft, Forbes and NASA. This year promises to match the calibre of experts you can connect with and learn from (see the event programme here). You just need to make sure you are registered!
