About this Event

New to the freelance steeze or thinking of taking the plunge? We've got Lucinda Gosling on hand to host a round table discussing the highs and lows. We are also making this a mini Freelancers Christmas Social so stick around for a festive drink afterwards!

Lucinda's been mostly freelance for nearly 8 years, having jumped ship from ad full-time agency life. She juggles a "portfolio" of projects from working with David Attenborough and the BBC on anti-plastics campaign, re-launching Al Jazeera Childrens Channel across the Middle East, creating the Mallow & Marsh brand from scratch and spent the last year(!) working 4 days a week with Vice whilst juggling teaching yoga, she even once made time to dance in the Olympic Opening Ceremony - and is a good port of call for advice for those new to the freelance world.

This session will cover:

  • The basic Do's and Don'ts of freelance - i.e. when's the right time to go freelance, thoughts on finances, holding your nerve and how to keep sane.
  • Professional Growth as a freelancer
  • Top tips and useful references - from the the best cafes to work in, to how to avoid a shock when your tax is due and chasing getting paid.
  • AQA

Lucinda Gosling is a creative brand strategist, responsible for positioning and advertising for major global brands as well as branding/identity work for start-ups. She's also a yoga teacher based in Hackney.
