Speakers: Gaia Celeste & Kenneth Nielsen
Moderator: Indrė Lelevičienė
One of the most common complaints heard in the industry is that project managers (or vendor managers) do not understand freelancers and vice versa. Just a couple of months back, we joined forces at Elia Together 2022 event and tried to identify the path to move forward together. We’ve discussed different topics, starting from how to find Picasso in your future work, remote opportunities, pricing strategies to creating a personal branding, how to WOW your audience with your content and how it is important to stand all together.
Here is a great chance to e-meet again and have an open discussion about topics related to what we heard during Together and more. Gaia Celeste (Translated) and Kenneth Nielsen (Freelancer) will help lead the discussion, and Indre Leleviciene (Together 2023 Program Chair) will keep them in line. Should you have implemented any tips in your practice already – we’d love to hear about your experience and thoughts!
