reading time: 5min | #events #freelancers | 10 October 2023 | Daan De Bock

On Oct. 19, the very first edition of the Freelancer Summit will take place. The summit is an initiative of entrepreneurial organization UNIZO, knowledge platform NextConomy and yes, yours truly: GIGHOUSE! Together we have had the honor of putting together an interesting and educational program for freelancers over the past year. During half a day we will tell you everything you need to know to surf the wave of E-contracting, Artificial Intelligence & Digitalization as a freelance expert. Why you should definitely attend the summit? Read on below!

1. Meet other freelancers

One of the main reasons to attend the Freelancer Summit is to get to know other freelancers. Because tell yourself, how strong is the lone freelancer? At this conference you can network with freelancers from all possible fields of expertise. That means: new relevant contacts, learning from each other or just a nice chat 😊

2. Retraining yourself

Technology is rushing past us. Applications that seemed like science fiction just last week have become standard today. For freelancers, it is not easy to keep up with all the novelties. We see digitalization changing all areas of entrepreneurship. Finance, marketing channels, remote workplaces as well as the way you send invoices are all subject to disruptive technologies. No fear of course. We are still convinced of the power of the freelancer. Armed with the right technologies, they are stronger than ever. But that's why it's important to stay up to date and know the right tools. To learn these tools, we put together 3 breakout blocks where you can choose which topic you want to learn more about.

Breakout 14:55-15:25

  • Charlotte van Brabander
    Optimize money mindset and money management with an eye toward financial freedom.
