FITC Spotlight: Freelance


Coworking spaces are brimming with freelancers, and we know the value of sharing tips and learning from one another.

And while anyone can become a freelancer, not everyone can run a sustainable, successful freelance business. It takes more than just being a killer programmer or a creative designer. At FITC’s Spotlight: Freelance, you can hear the stories of eight leading industry professionals who are or have been freelancers, and others who work with freelancers directly. Find out how to price your projects and get paid. Learn strategies on working with clients. Master the skills of networking to land jobs with the people you want, on the projects you want.

Featured speakers include:

  • Ben Weeks
  • Daniel Schutzsmith
  • David Gillis
  • Julie MacDonell
  • Kevin Airgid
  • Kurt Krumme
  • Mark MacLeod
  • Mavis Huntley

The early bird deadline for tickets to Freelance is August 30 – enter “Camaraderie” for a 10% discount. Also, FITC is giving away a copy of Adobe CS6 Master Collection to someone who buys a ticket and tweets to enter. Details of that contest are at  people you want, on the projects you want. These are all essential things to learn and refine as a freelancer.

This event will take place on Sep 28 at the U of T Bahen Centre for Information Technology at 40 St George St.
