Thank you for supporting freelance training

I would like to thank London Freelance Branch for offering a subsidy to members who took my one-day training courses First steps in freelancing on 17 July and Winning and negotiating freelance work on 31 July, both of which were delivered via Zoom. We had 16 people taking part in the first and 15 in the second, from across the UK, the Republic of Ireland, continental Europe and with one participant (temporarily) in the US.

The subsidy helped more people to take part than in the first ones we ran online in the spring, and this helped generate useful discussion and idea-sharing that I will draw on for future versions of the courses. They will run next on 16 October (First steps) and 6 November (Winning and negotiating), either online or in London depending on the virus. Details and booking: www.nuj.org.uk/events/.
