Tenth National Freelancers Day promises to be bigger and better than ever


IPSE will be celebrating the great and the good from the world of freelancing at the tenth annual National Freelancers Day.

Held at King’s Place in central London on Thursday 28 June, the day will include a huge variety of insightful seminars, speeches, panel sessions and interactive workshops.

Whether you’re a career freelancer, have just started out, or are simply considering taking the plunge, you’ll find something at National Freelancers Day. The day will also address fundamental – yet often underappreciated – topics around self-employment such as mental health.

Structured around four key streams – health and wellbeing, digital, winning work, and financial – the day will bring together speakers from a range of industries, specialisms and companies including Uber, Aon, Sanctus and Beavertown Brewery.

With complimentary headshots, free lunch and a showcase where you can network with other freelancers, purchase work and even have a massage, it promises to be a day to remember.

Don’t miss out: join the hundreds of other freelancers starting and growing their businesses at National Freelancers Day.    

Chris Bryce, IPSE CEO, commented: “Since the inaugural National Freelancers Day, we have seen the event grow exponentially. It is now one of the biggest days in the business calendar. As the freelance sector has matured over the last decade, so too has our approach in tackling important issue such as mental health and wellbeing.

“If you’ve been freelancing all your life, are just starting out – or even if you’re just considering working for yourself – we’ve got something for you. Whether you want financial advice, tips for winning work or just to speak with others who have been there and done that, I urge you to get your tickets now!”

Charlotte Beevor, NFD exhibitor and 2017 Freelancer of the Year finalist, added: “Attending National Freelancers Day last year and being shortlisted for an award was one of the most valuable things I did for my freelance business in terms of the confidence boost it gave me.

“Listening to talks from other freelancers, either more advance in their career or in a different industry entirely, was really inspiring as learning from them helps you evolve your business.

“Very few events bring together so many experts from so many different fields. So whether you have a specific area in mind or just want to attend and see what you can learn or who you can meet, it’s a fantastic event.”
