What skills do you have?

How can you acquire more marketable skills?

Are you suited to life as a freelancer?

The session is facilitated by Dr Catherine Pope, who has 20 years’ experience of freelancing as a web developer, writer, and trainer.

By the end of the session, you’ll have:

  • Learned more about life as a freelancer

  • identified your marketable skills

  • considered options  for further development
