Following the success of last June’s Enterprise Freelance Fair three further events have been announced in the North West sponsored by specialist freelance accountants Brookson. The first is to be held in Egerton House, Birkenhead on the 14th October.
Neil Lewis of Media Modo, the company behind the Enterprise Freelance Fair, explains why the North West was chosen:
“We chose this region specifically due to its wealth of creative talent and entrepreneurial spirit. There really is an exciting buzz in the air within the creative industry in the North West. I speak to lots of agencies who struggle to find sufficient talented freelancers whilst on the other hand I have met so many amazing freelancers who do not have good connections with local businesses. Our event aims to bridge that gap and more importantly show people how to make the relationships work.”
The Brookson Enterprise and Freelance Fair is designed to assist businesses who are looking for additional resources to connect with talented freelancers and for freelancers to develop their client base through introductions to the right people.
Lewis continues “we have been developing unique profiling methods to filter and group participants such that the quality and purpose of any introduction is greatly improved. No longer do you need to look at a room of 50 or 60 people and think 'who on earth should I talk to? And even if I knew who to talk to, what would I talk to them about?' We will work out who you should talk to, why and introduce you.”
The event will be attended by freelancers, start up entrepreneurs, media owners, creative & digital agencies and marketing managers /directors. If you are looking for additional sales, new freelance clients, original creative ideas or simply to increase your access to freelance talent, then a visit the Brookson Enterprise Freelance Fair could be the answer.
At the event we will identify the 5 most relevant people in the room for each delegate to meet - according to their current objectives and each delegate’s skills or products and we will introduce them to each other for an initial conversation.
Mr Lewis said “We are so committed to connecting the right people that we're offering to guarantee that all attendees will make 3 valuable business contacts. For freelancers this will be 3 potential new clients. For agencies, start ups, marketing teams, media companies or businesses, it will be 3 valuable and useful freelance contacts or ideas / products and services.
After the success of our events last year we are delighted to welcome our lead sponsor Brookson, the specialist freelance accountant and support service provider who are based in Warrington.
Victoria McDonnell, marketing manager at Brookson said: “As specialist accountants servicing the freelance arena, Brookson is delighted to be sponsoring the suite of Enterprise Freelance Fair events. The events are an excellent opportunity for freelancers to network with a number of hiring businesses and also gain valuable advice from industry experts on marketing your services and keeping your finances on track. A real must for freelancers based in the North West!”
Andrew Webster, corporate general manager at Brookson added: “When working as a freelancer it is crucial to ensure that your businesses finances are in good working order. From initial set up, to invoicing, claiming expenses and paying tax, these are just some of the responsibilities freelancers have to take care of. As lead sponsor across all three of the Enterprise Freelance Fair events, Brookson accountancy services will be on hand to offer attendees free advice regarding all of the freelancer money matters.”
