National Freelancers Day

National Freelancers Day is IPSE's annual, flagship event, bringing together freelancers, contractors, independent professionals and the self-employed for a day of workshops, seminars, panel sessions and networking. To find out more about our 2019 event please visit the event website.

In 2019 we had our most successful NFD to date with over 450 guests joining us to celebrate in London and smaller regional events in Bristol and Manchester. Our keynote speakers, Pip Jamieson, founder and CEO of the netwroking platform The Dots and Adam Kay, award-winning bestselling author and comedian, set the tone for the day with their opening and closing speeches. We also welcomed speakers from companies such as i2media research, Fiverr, Battersea Scratch Hub, Lola Media and Sanctus. 

Join us at Kings Place, London for our annual flagship event  National Freelancers Day on Thursday 18 June 2020.

We will be celebrating the very best of the UK’s most exciting, driven and enterprising self-employed at our annual conference.

The day will include keynotes, seminars, workshops, panel sessions, exhibition stands, networking and more.
