Freelancer Talk x Amsterdam

Networking without the stress of networking!

Let’s be honest, we can all use a fun night out where we finally get to meet some new creative people. Networking as a freelancer has been a true nightmare for the past few months. Unless you are a Zoom addict, then you’re good.

Successful freelance careers are built on strong and supportive networks, that’s a fact. But networking doesn’t always come naturally for creatives. It can be a little stressful and might even feel forced at times.

We believe that networking shouldn’t always need to feel too formal. It should actually be fun and playful, especially in our current lovely pandemic!

In collaboration with one of the best spots in town, Cafe Belcampo at De Hallen Amsterdam,  we’re going to create a one-night space where the vibe screams Connection and Creativity, and probably more wine.

We’re going to take the “working” out of the networking!

During the event, we’ll have a bunch of speakers share their stories about freelancing through “Freelancer Talks“.

Make sure to bring your dancing shoes because we’ll end the night with some dancing to the tunes of DJ To Be Announced. Yeah, that wasn’t a weird DJ name, we still have to actually announce the DJ.

Make sure to bring your freelance buddies and follow us on Instagram to stay updated on the event.

We look forward to meeting you on March 12th!
